The San Diego Improving Teacher Quality Project in the Visual and Performing Arts will be wrapping up this year by having both teachers AND administrators from YEAR TWO and YEAR ONE sites come together in one grand workshop to evaluate, discuss and share our journey over the past two years. Those schools that are in year two will be encouraged to share their experiences with the year one folks from Knox, Paradise Hills and Jones Elementary Schools as they finish their year of co-teaching with teaching artists and embark upon the task of teaching the VAPA lessons on their own in 2010-11.
We will also begin preparations for the year two folks to expand on the ITQ arts instruction and strategies next year as they find ways to use it in their own curriculum.
Year TWO folks, please be thinking of the following:
1. What will the arts look like in your classroom, at your grade level, and at your site next year?
2. In what capacity will the arts be taught or used?
3. What kind of support will you need for year three of your work?
As we get closer to the date, Denise Lynne will be sending out more information to prepare participants for this day.
Date and Time: Tuesday, June 8, 4:30-6:30 (workshop rate compensation)
Place: TBA (We’re looking for a venue with plenty of room.)
