      On March 19, 2014, we explored the paradigm shift that occurs when schools or communities are approached by building upon the strengths they offer as opposed to their perceived deficits. We heard about asset-based school reform efforts from keynote speaker Dr. Warren Simmons, the Executive Director of the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University. The panel discussion that followed featured three local teaching artists as they shared how they take this same asset-based approach to their work in Chicago. We hope to foster conversation about education reform and progressive practices and inspire arts education practitioners and program developers to explore this asset-based approach in their own practice. http://www.colum.edu/ccap/programs/teaching-artist/index.html Film credit: Reid Compton
