The website of the NYS Alliance for Arts Education promises "three days of policy setting, planning, exchange of skills and inspirational speakers." Teaching artists who are interested in things like "fresh curriculum design, school reform and new models for classroom learning" should definitely plan to attend.
Aside from the NYS Alliance for Arts Education, Common Ground is co-organized by a "who's who" of allies in the field, including Partners for Arts Education, the Empire State Partnerships, the NYS Department of Education, the BOCES Arts in Education Network, Capital Region BOCES, and the Association of Teaching Artists!
Common Ground is currently seeking workshop proposals in three areas:
- CORE KNOWLEDGE
- CURRICULUM and ASSESSMENT
- EDUCATION REFORM
Deadline for Submission - December 15, 2009
Presenters will receive a free single-day conference registration, which means you can totally afford it.
