Art and the Common Core February 19, 2013 2 – 3 PM ET
- As educators work to help students meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards in English/language arts and mathematics, many arts education advocates are making the case that the arts can be a valuable partner. For example, some teachers are seizing on works of art as “text” to be the subject of a close reading, much like a novel or essay, as called for in the new English standards. This Education Week webinar will feature two experts to discuss the potential of arts integration with the common core and to provide practical examples of how to put the concept into practice.
- Susan M. Riley, expert in arts integration, curriculum innovation, and resource development specialist, Anne Arundel County public schools, Md.
- Lynne Munson, president and executive director, Common Core
This webinar will be moderated by Erik Robelen, assistant editor for Education Week. Underwriting for the content of this webinar has been provided by the GE Foundation.
