EdTA NCAS "Community of Learners" Application

The Educational Theatre Association in partnership with the member organizations of the National Coalition for Arts Standards (NCAS) are seeking educators to participate in the next phase of “Creating A Community For All Learners- Reimagining Standards-based Arts Education for Equity & Inclusion", a project focused on  reassessment of the national arts standards through the lens of culturally responsive teaching and student-centered instruction.

In Phase I of the project, a panel of expert advisors representing diverse heritages and communities,  convened to review the standards for areas of needed change or revision. The group performed a rigorous gap analysis to assess the national arts standards for cultural sensitivity and inclusion, producing a guidance document for standards creation and use.  

We are now recruiting for Phase II. In this next phase, a cohort of teachers and teaching artists representing the five arts areas will be chosen by the NCAS member organizations from PK-12 educational programs and school districts representing rural, suburban, and urban communities.

Participants will:
 - attend a two hour virtual training  in August 2024
-  revise a lesson plan of their choosing based on guidance for culturally responsive teaching
-  pilot the revised lesson in their classroom in Fall of 2024
-  provide NCAS with the final revised lesson plan
-  attend a final reflection meeting
-  receive $600.00 compensation
Total time commitment is estimated at 15 – 20 hours over the summer into Fall.
