Music! Words! Opera! (M!W!O!) Professional Development Workshop
Professional development for educators is something that we take seriously. We host a curriculum workshop called Music! Words! Opera! developed by Opera America - the national service organization for opera. In addition to exploring some of the greatest operas ever composed, the curriculum is perfect for interdisciplinary study, joining various content areas such as language arts, social studies, science, mathematics, English, and fine arts together with music. Designed for educators teaching grades 4th-12th, the 2013 training session will explore Verdi's Aida. M!W!O! also trains teachers to lead students step-by-step through the process of producing an original opera. The workshops are for any educator whether classroom teacher, art and drama teacher, music teacher, etc. We suggest more than one teacher per school to participate for collaborative purposes. The one week training session will be led by M!W!O! national training facilitators Clifford Brooks and Roger Ames.
