Dodd works in harmony to create one

As part of its ongoing series of professional development workshops, faculty at Dodd rang in the holiday season during its participation in a Teachers Teaching Teachers session.

The workshop featured members of the school’s music department teaching their colleagues how to sing and create music for “Carol of the Bells.” Teachers worked in two independent groups — vocal and instrumental — and fostered teamwork by collaborating and working toward a common goal.

The workshop, which was based on formative assessment and effective feedback, culminated with a unified performance of the holiday classic.
