The Chicago Arts Educator Forum (CAEF) provides program directors and administrators at arts organizations an opportunity to engage in shared learning, build leadership and knowledge capacity, and strengthen educational practice delivered both in and out of the classroom. The Forums create a collective and unified identity for arts education administrators. Topics are peer-driven, with input from the CAEF advisory board and Forum attendees.
Hooked on a Feeling will focus on how the arts can serve as the bridge between Social Emotional Learning and Common Core State Standards, and how to communicate its value in your programming. Participants will engage in and reflect upon discipline-specific arts activities where the arts, Common Core State Standards and Social Emotional Learning intersect.
