Over the last several years, P.S. ARTS has been working to convert our faculty professional development program into a series of online courses to support Teaching Artists’ professional practice. Course topics include fostering inclusion and social emotional learning in arts classrooms, arts integration strategies, and discipline-specific knowledge and skill-building. We expect to make these courses available to the broad arts educator community in early 2023.
Arts Integration Coaching
P.S. ARTS faculty work alongside credentialed teachers in classrooms to co-develop and/or model integrated arts learning into academic curricula and support implementation of the State Common Core Standards. To request more information about our model residencies for classroom teachers, please email email@example.com.
P.S. ARTS offers group and individual coaching to classroom teachers interested in integrating arts into their core curriculum to increase student engagement and learning.
