The Joan Oates Institute for Partners in the Arts
The Joan Oates Institute (JOI) for Partners in the Arts prepares PreK-12 teachers of all subject areas to develop lesson and unit plans for integrating the arts into their classrooms.The Institute will take place on the campus of the University of Richmond June 23-27, 2014. Each day lasts from 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m., with breakfast and lunch provided. Registration for the full course will open in March 2014.
Teams of two or more teachers from the same school, including at least one arts (visual, music, drama, dance, literary) teacher, are encouraged. Media, technology, and special needs instructors are also welcome. Multiple teams from one school may attend and the course varies enough each year to be relevant to previous participants.

- Earn three university semester hours, undergraduate or graduate, which satisfy 90 recertification points with the VA DOE
