  • implies knowledge as well as technical skill

Suggested Student Profile

  • Upon entry to high school level study, it is suggested that each student be assessed via a student profile

  • This profile should be maintained throughout the high school career, so that each student has a history of his/her education, academic performance, and experiences in the arts.

Suggested Student Profile

  • The profile documents:

    • arts education and student academic performance in any of the four arts education disciplines at the K-8 levels,

    • arts studies that the student has completed outside of the school (private lessons, internships, studio classes, etc.).

Student Placement

  • Those students who have had limited or NO instruction in the arts discipline prior to the high school level will enter at a beginning level of study in any high school coursework.

  • Students may participate in a variety of electives from beginning through advanced levels in each of the arts disciplines.

Teacher Evaluation Process

“Teachers advocate for schools and students.”

Standard I, Element D

Teachers advocate for positive change in policies and practices affecting student learning. (Section G)

My professional commitment…

Building Local Capacity

  • Go to your regional section of the wiki

  • Upload at least one resource to share

Addressing the whole child prepares future-ready students who are competitive for work and post-secondary education and prepared for life in the 21st century.

I used to think…but now I know...

  • Is a self-assessment and reflection exercise that helps students recognize whether and how their thinking has changed at the end of a sequence of instruction.

One Word

  • How do you feel about standards implementation right now?
