Participants who attended the In-Service
workshop, The Purple Apple: Creative
Arts for the Elementary Classroom,
were asked to give us helpful feedback.
They were asked to write about the following
- What was helpful, useful or positive
for you about this workshop?
- What would you have changed?
- What could we do to improve this
The following quotes are their responses.
- The workshop is very well organized.
Presentations and hands-on experimentation
flowed smoothly. The pacing of the
two days was excellent. Materials
were plentiful and helped model "how-to" material
handling for class use.
The "alien" lesson was an
excellent modeling of the entire lesson
sequencing from introduction to closure.
It was very valuable to have the range
of materials that were available to
experiment with for our own knowledge
and to remember to give students the
same opportunity for this skill building.
This program is fantastic and from
personal experience with my own classroom
- it works
- Thank you for creating a safe and
joyful place for us to learn about opportunities
for creative processes with children.
To directly experience creations of
our own imaginations was a gift. Thank
you Renee and Kaylin.
P.S. I enjoyed the musical background
- I liked having one project that continued
througout the day. Really appreciated
the genuineness of the presenters in
what you shared about yourselves.
I would not change anything really.
Although I work primarily with adolescents
and we could talk more about adaptation
to different age groups and populations.
- I loved the Purple Apple presentation
- great speakers. Fantastic materials
for hands-on participation. I felt challenged
and creative and came away with renewed
excitement and appreciation for the
creative process. Thank you presenters.
- Thanks for the wonderful workshop.
Thanks most of all for pursuing your "dream"
so you can share it with all of us,
so we in return can share with all those
children and adults that we will meet
from now 'till --- Hope to meet again
- This was a wonderful workshop. I found
the environment to be supportive and
non-threatening. The instructors were
very direct and made their instructions
very simple to understand. the time
was well-used between coming together
as a group and activities. There was
a wonderful assortment of materials
made available. I would like to see
the workshop made into two full days.
I also appreciated the treats that were
here for us to eat. Thank you.
- Wonderful ideas - I especially
enjoyed having one project and developing
