New Creativity at the Core Module 23: Media Arts for Elementary Classrooms, Grades TK-6

CCSESA is proud to announce the launch of a new module developed by Jeannine Flores, Los Angeles County Office of Education’s Center for Distance and Online Learning (CDOL).

This module brings together high-quality arts integration professional learning to support Media Arts across the state. The Media Arts for Elementary Classrooms Module provides foundational skills and instruction in various Media Arts contents. Technology Enhanced Arts Learning (TEAL) is featured in the module providing a blended model of online and virtual professional development. Outstanding industry partners provided foundational skills and instruction along with TEAL experts.

Since the adoption of the California Arts Standards for Public Schools and the California Arts Framework for Public Schools, there is a need for a practical introduction to Media Arts at the elementary level. Students are learning from home on devices and are consuming, creating, and sharing media online. Educators are eager to develop media skills to support student content that is both current and standards aligned. Media Arts is a natural fit to the modern elementary classroom where students can express their voice and ideas in creative ways.

Please take time to review all the lessons, videos, and resources developed through a yearlong process that included a professional learning series with educators, CLICK HERE.

Many thanks to all who contributed to this module. Special thanks to The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Stuart Foundation for their support of this work.

Arts should be part of any plans to rethink schooling and reengage students

As districts plan for reopening schools in the fall, many parents, educators and policymakers are concerned about reengaging students, especially students who experienced trauma, stress and disrupted learning during the pandemic.

Across California, their conversations are about how to reimagine schools to better meet the needs of all students and place equity at the center of educational systems.

Our team at SRI had the opportunity to go to the source and ask students about their experiences with school — and they made a compelling case for why the arts should be part of any plans to rethink schooling and reengage students.

CDPH Releases COVID-19 Guidance for K-12 Schools

The California Department of Public Health ​On July 9, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published its updated recommendations for K-12 schools. The following guidance applies CDC’s recommendations to the California context, in order to help K-12 schools formulate and implement plans for safe, successful, and full in-person instruction in the 2021-22 school year. This guidance is effective immediately and will be reviewed regularly by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

The foundational principle of this guidance is that all students must have access to safe and full in-person instruction and to as much instructional time as possible. In California, the surest path to safe and full in-person instruction at the outset of the school year, as well as minimizing missed school days in an ongoing basis, is a strong emphasis on the following: vaccination for all eligible individuals to get COVID-19 rates down throughout the community; universal masking in schools, which enables no minimum physical distancing, allowing all students access to full in-person learning, and more targeted quarantine practices, keeping students in school; and access to a robust COVID-19 testing program as an available additional safety layer. Recent evidence indicates that in-person instruction can occur safely without minimum physical distancing requirements when other mitigation strategies (e.g., masking) are fully implemented.  This is consistent with CDC K-12 School Guidance.

Counties on the Move: Arts Education for All Students publication

The CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative believes that the arts are an integral part of a comprehensive curriculum and are essential for learning in the 21st century. All California students – from every culture, geographic region and socio-economic level – deserve quality arts learning in dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts as part of the core curriculum. In this issue, we would like to highlight the excellent work being done on behalf of students primarily in northern California.

California Arts Council

The California Arts Council has released the findings of a needs assessment and process and impact evaluation of the state agency’s Arts in Corrections program.

The report, Flowers Grown in Concrete: Exploring the Healing Power of the Arts for People Experiencing Incarceration—demonstrates three major findings for California’s prison-based arts programming and instruction, with the objective of enhancing and expanding student-centered rehabilitation and reintegration efforts in the future.

Authored by a research team at the University of Wisconsin Justice Lab, in partnership with Dr. Linda Burton, Dean of the School of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley, the report “exemplifies the power of the arts to remind us of our shared humanity, especially during this global pandemic,” said Arts in Corrections Program Manager Mariana Moscoso. “Alternative programming let our participants know we were thinking of them and that their lives and creativity mattered, even if we are not physically there to provide that programming.”

Arts Framework Resources Now Available!

New resources to support the implementation of the 2020 Arts Education Framework for Public Schools, Transitional Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve (Arts Framework) are now available. The resources are sets of PowerPoint slides that can be downloaded and customized for presentations. The content was selected and refined in collaboration with leaders from California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) Statewide Arts Initiative and The California Arts Project (TCAP). The slides are mostly self-explanatory, but in some places the slide notes contain clarifying talking points, possible reflection questions, or notes that may be useful for anyone facilitating a group. Users may wish to add graphics and additional slides for interactivity or perhaps break up the content into smaller chunks. In their current state, the slides are accessible to screen readers and compliant with federal accessibility guidelines.

To access the decks, go to https://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/vp/cf/ and scroll down to Arts Framework Resources. Currently decks are available for the Guide to Reading and Using the Framework, and for Chapter 1: Vision and Goals for Standards Based Arts Education. In the next several weeks Chapter 2: The Instructional Cycle will be added. Chapter 9: Implementing Effective Arts Education will be added in August. Thank you to all CCSESA and TCAP leaders who contributed to this effort. A special thanks goes to Sarah Anderberg and Kris Alexander for their leadership and institutional support. For more information on these resources please contact Letty Kraus at lkraus@cde.ca.gov.
