Please mark your calendar for the next Collaborative Arts PLC meeting on Thursday, March 22nd at 3:30 at the ASU Center at Hickory (formerly Hickory Metro Higher Ed Center). I hope you'll choose to join us as we continue to dig into the new Essential Standards and share resources and ideas for teaching them effectively. Thanks again to everyone who attended January's Collaborative Arts PLC. It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones! We had representatives from 7 different school districts, including Newton-Conover City Schools, Hickory Public Schools, Catawba County Schools, Alexander County Schools, Wilkes County Schools, Alleghany County Schools, and the NC School for the Deaf. Teachers worked in small groups to begin discussions about the new Essential Standards that will go into effect next year. It really was wonderful to see such a great turnout, because this curriculum work is much more beneficial and efficient when many people are involved.

Our final meeting of the school year will be held on May 31st at 3:30 at the ASU Center. At that meeting, we will explore artifacts that arts teachers can use to demonstrate proficiency on the teacher evaluation instrument.

If you haven't yet joined our wiki, click here to join. You can access shared resources and curriculum documents aligned with the new Essential Standards.

Please mark your calendar for our next two meetings. I hope that you'll choose to join us and bring a friend! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions

I. GOOD NEWS

SEC. DUNCAN PRAISES ARTS EDUCATION AS 'VITAL' INFUSION FOR TODAY'S SCHOOLS

WASHINGTON, DC (3/2/2012) – Pointing to specific arts education programs for the first time, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan applauded arts education Friday in his official DOE blog post.




"All of the arts – dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts – are essential to preparing our nation’s young people," he declared, connecting the dots between arts education and career-readiness skills in math, science, and humanities, "and for a social discourse that demands communication in images and sound as well as in text."




He specifically pointed to March as Dance in the Schools Month, Music in Our Schools Month, Theatre In Our Schools Month, and Youth Art Month. Arts specialists – educators, administrators, and community advocates who collaborate with classroom teachers to integrate the arts with other core subjects – received special praise as "chief creative officers" for helping students reach high standards in the arts.The full article may be viewed at: http://www.ed.gov/blog/2012/03/it%E2%80%99s-march-do-you-know-how-strong-your-schools%E2%80%99-arts-programs-are/

Ii. HIGH PRIORITY


STATE BOARD GRANTS CALENDAR WAIVER REQUESTS

At their March meeting, State Board members approved a motion granting authority to the State Superintendent to grant local districts waivers of up to five instructional days for the 2012-13 school year if the days are used for the following purposes:

- provide additional professional development on Essential Standards and Common Core as described in your LEA or Charter School's approved Detailed Scope of Work under the Race to the Top initiative (Section B3),

- train teachers and staff on how to use digital devices to improve instruction, or

- other targeted staff development with documented results that such training has enhanced student performance (ex.: Responsiveness to Instruction).

Districts must submit waiver requests by April 30. Waiver requests for any other reason will be considered by the State Board of Education as long as they are submitted by April 30.

January 22, 2012: Newton-Conover Announces Collaborative Arts PLC Meetings

Collaborative Arts PLC on Thursday, January 26th at 3:30 at the ASU Center at Hickory (formerly Hickory Metro Higher Ed Center). All arts teachers in Region 7 are invited to participate.


We will spend our meeting time digging into the new Essential Standards and creating curriculum maps. In particular, we'll focus on the "Cultural Relevancy" strand. This strand requires arts teachers to incorporate cultural context, geography, and history into their instruction.


In order to dig deeply into these standards and share resources for teaching them, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Our goal is to work in small job-alike groups focused on music, dance, visual arts, and theatre arts. We hope that you'll join us!


Another topic of interest for this year is exploring sample artifacts that arts teachers can use to demonstrate proficiency on the new teacher evaluation instrument. That will be our topic for the March 22nd meeting.


If you haven't joined our wiki, click here to join. On the wiki, you'll find minutes from our meetings, lots of shared resources, and contact information for other arts teachers. We have plans for growing the wiki throughout this school year.


Go ahead and mark your calendar for these meeting dates: January 26th, March 22nd, and May 31st. Those meetings will be held at 3:30 at the ASU Center at Hickory (formerly Hickory Metro Higher Education Center) on Highway 70.


I hope to see you on January 26th! Please contact Jayme Linton if you have any questions. Her contact information is below.
