NCDPIVision for Arts Education In today’s globally competitive world, innovative thinking and creativity are essential for all school children. High quality, standards-based instruction in the arts develops these skills and effectively engages, retains, and prepares future-ready students for graduation and success in an entrepreneurial economy. Dance, music, theatre arts, and visual arts, taught by licensed arts educators and integrated throughout the curriculum, are critical to North Carolina’s 21st century education.
High QualityConsistent AssessableArts Education Across the School System Vision: • Arts students will graduate on time, college and career ready. While discovering their passion, they will achieve excellence through rigorous study of deeply aligned arts curriculum.

Artsfolio • Local Team • Paul Orsett & Virginia O’Brien (Theatre) • Sherri Newhouse & Sue Hill (Dance) • Jennifer French & Rebekah Arrington (Visual Art) • tinyurl.com/ArtsfolioWork
Dance Examples Creation & Performance - Beginning • I can create dance sequences that vary the use of dance elements, use simple choreographic structures, and use choreographic principles to fulfill choreographic intent. • Exemplar *: Video of student generated works combining dance elements, structures, and principles to fulfill choreographic intent
Visual Art Examples Cultural Context – Beginning (EXEMPLAR **) I can explain how art influences historical perspectives on society. • Students may construct a cause and effect model that shows how art influences historical perspectives on society. Products may include thinking maps or graphic organizers: https://bubbl.us/, http://popplet.com/, http://www.dipity.com/, http://www.gliffy.com/. Student will be given a list of teacher selected criteria on which to base their response.
CDM/Placement • CDM – Credit by Demonstrated Mastery • Not as much of an issue for the arts since students can already cross over ‘levels’ and take honors level courses multiple times for credit • Does not count towards their GPA • Consistent Placement Practices • Started but we’re not there yet … • Please email your successful practices to Liz
Governor’s Teacher Network • http://www.ncpublicschools.org/rttt/gtn/ • Pathway 1: Professional Development • Pathway 2: Instructional Resources • Applications due: April 21, 2014 • Teachers notified: May 30, 2014
