WEBINAR INFORMATION

We first covered this topic back in January 2015. This webinar workshop will begin with an update on the nationwide state adoption/adaptation status of the theatre and other arts standards informed by the 2014 National Core Arts Standards. The presenter will then do short review of the purpose, structure, and web-based environment of the Core Standards, before moving into a detailed presentation on the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards’ (NCCAS) Model Cornerstone Assessment Pilot Project, a two-year initiative designed to identify standards-based student learning outcomes in the arts. The session will conclude with an overview of the relationship of the arts standards to the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeed Act. The session will also include periodic and concluding Q&A opportunities.

By attending this workshop, participants will be able to….

1. Find out where their state stands regarding the alignment of theatre and other arts standards to the National Core Standards.
2. Understand the structure and purpose of the new core standards and their applicability to in-school and after school theatre education programs taught by certified educators and/or teaching artists
3. Gain literacy around the web-based environment of the standards
4. Learn how the Model Cornerstone Assessments Pilot Project is helping to refine the NCCAS assessment model for measuring student learning that will help improvement achievement and validate the pedagogy of classroom educators and teaching artists.
5. Become literate in the basic opportunities for arts education that are embedded in the “well-rounded” education language of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.
