Eastern Suffolk BOCES awarded Arts Program Grant Eastern Suffolk BOCES has been awarded a four-year U.S. Dept, of Ed­ ucation Arts in Education Model De­ velopment and Dissemination Pro­ gram grant for more than $1 million. This money covers all costs of the upcoming program. This grant will foster 21st Century skills for teach­ ers and students by encouraging cre­ ativity and collaboration utilizing the arts in all areas of teaching and learn­ ing. The agency will share the tools for teaching and learning throughout New York State and with national ed­ ucation communities. In partnership with the Tilles Cen­ ter for the Performing Arts, Arts Education Consultant Laura Reeder and Metis Associates evaluators, ES­ BOCES will bring the program and residencies to students in grades two to four in their classrooms and with specialty teachers in the Brentwood and Riverhead School Districts. The program is linked to state and na­ tional learning standards. Year one will begin with a design of evaluation materials with noted Metis researchers. This will be followed by a five-day Aesthetic Edu­ cation seminar with the Tilles Center - based on the nationally recog­ nized Lincoln Center Institute model - with a core group of second grade and arts specialty teachers. k This., group will expand during the ensuing years of the grant to add teachers and students in grades three and four, with the goal of engaging up to 90 teachers in the aésthetic education and 21st Century learning models of lifelong education through integration of the visual and performing arts. Under the direction of Arts Education Consultant Ms. Reeder, ESBOCES, Brentwood and Riverhead teachers, and the Tilles Center, teaching artists will collabo­ rate on the development and imple­ mentation of in-school units of study for students in targeted classrooms, and documentation and dissemina­ tion of effective materials, practices and processed. As the project develops, a web- based “toolkit” comprised of model lessons, assessment tools and proto­ cols, images, and video clips will be publicly accessible via the ESBOCES website.
