Program: Professional Development Workshops

Audience: Teachers of the Arts

Dates: 10/16/2018

After a brief introduction to the concept and purpose of standards, we will explore the timeline and process that went into developing the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts. We then begin a slow immersion into the formatting and content of the standards, including available support resources and an exercise in connecting one's current teaching with the basic elements of the standards. This is followed by a hands-on exploration of the web-based standards content and supporting materials, including level and discipline specific information. After examining the coding system to label the standards content, teachers will work individually to make connections with their current teaching on level and discipline specific basis. Finally, teachers will participate in a gap analysis of their teaching and their students' learning, and will plot strategies for further growth in their instructional environment
