Arts Assessment Course in York

January 18, 2012

Courses underway… 

York High School was the place to be this weekend if you are interested in taking assessment to a new level in your Music classroom. Instructor Rob Westerberg greeted music educators on the first day of their graduate level course, offered by the New England Institute for Teacher Education. Great collaboration, sharing of resources, and learning ways to improve student learning are just some of the benefits of working together with colleagues in the arts.
