Program: Professional Development Unit

Audience: teachers of visual arts, music, theater, dance, and media arts.

Dates: 4/24/2019

The new arts standards were designed to help arts educators provide the high-quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment that students need to succeed in today's schools and tomorrow's careers. These learning standards are the culmination of a seven-year process that involved input from arts educators across the state, including those who work with students with disabilities and English language learners. The standards writing committees integrated changes into the National Core Arts Standards while cross walking with the current NYS arts standards to ensure that the standards continue to be rigorous and challenge New York's students. Sunshine Miller, former Arts Educator and Arts in Education Coordinator at TST BOCES, will facilitate a full day workshop designed to familiarize participants with the New York State Arts Learning Standards. Participants will be able to answer the following questions: What will the new standards look like in my classroom? Where do I begin with realignment of my curriculum? How do I locate the resources I need to implement the new arts standards?
