Like a really good hardware store we only stock the good stuff: concrete, interesting and useful teaching tools that derive from years of practical experience and engage theoretical ideas that are firmly rooted in practice.

What Success Looks Like in My Teaching

This video is one teaching artist’s in-depth explanation of how she evaluates success in the classroom. Percussive dancer Malke Rosenfeld illustrates and explains how success is not always found in the final product but in how far students have come from where they started. Success is also exemplified by a number of smaller victories throughout the week.

This video also provides a clear and detailed overview of how Malke evaluates success in her teaching of dance and math. In her approach, the two disciplines are deeply integrative and inform one another
