Summer Opportunity in the County

Arts Assessment course

The New England Institute for Teacher Education will be bringing graduate level courses to Aroostook County this summer, including Arts Assessment courses in Music and Visual Art.

Bill Buzza will be teaching the music course and Catherine Ring will be teaching the visual art course. Both are on the Leadership Team with the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative.

Please register with the New England Institute if you are interested in taking your assessment practices to a deeper level.

Working with a cohort of colleagues who share best practices and resources is stimulating and fun. Deep discussions around how to assess, benchmark, and align to standards are helping to improve learning in the arts classroom.  Graduate courses made available in other parts of the state have met with great success.  Join Bill and Catherine in Presque Isle this summer!
