Young Audiences/Arts for Learning Maryland's Teaching Artist Institute Featured by NPR Affiliate

Young Audiences/Arts for Learning Maryland's Teaching Artist Institute (TAI) was featured last month in an on air segment and online article by NPR Affiliate WYPR. The TAI is a comprehensive professional development program for teaching artists that builds artists' capacity to contribute to student learning in and through the arts.

The program trains teaching artists in the use and understanding of the state curriculum and the Common Core Standards, as well as arts integration strategies to assist the artist in engaging teachers and students. Topics such as classroom management strategies, designing, writing, and teaching artist-in-residence lessons, and educator needs are covered, as well as opportunities for field testing and feedback.

This comprehensive training program for professional artists is a partnership between Young Audiences of Maryland, the Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance, and the Maryland State Arts Council.
