HIGHLIGHT | Creativity at the Core Module 25 - Leveraging English Language Learner Assets through the Arts - Grades K-12
Welcome to the CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative Creativity at the Core, Module 25: Leveraging English Language Learner Assets through the Arts – Grades K-12 brought to you by the San Diego County Office of Education. This module focuses on using the Arts as a lens through which we view the importance of cultural and linguistic connections English Learners make to the Arts. By leveraging student assets and building into and from the content provides students meaningful access to 21st century skills, resulting in high levels of proficiency and mastery of grade-level standards in the arts and across other content areas.
With the recent passage of the Arts and Music Instructional Materials Discretionary Block Grant and the Arts and Music in Schools Funding Guarantee and Accountability Act it is more important than ever to plan strategically and creatively for how to use these and other funding streams to fulfill the goal of equitable access to fully-staffed, sequential, standards-based arts education for all students at all grade levels.
Community of Practice participants will prepare to support their county or district with funding implementation by:
- Developing a deeper understanding of the various funding streams and possible uses
- Taking stock of current need in their county or district
- Engaging in facilitated conversations with other arts education leaders around problems of practice
- Sharing ideas and best practices
COP Meetings will be virtual and will from be held from 10:00-11:30 AM on the following dates:
