Young Audiences of Louisiana to host Arts-Integrated Instruction for Jefferson Parish Schools!

More than 50 teachers at five Jefferson Parish Schools will participate in Arts-Integrated training sessions hosted by Young Audiences of Louisiana. The professional development is being made possible by a $347,000 federal grant received by the Jefferson Parish School District. The training program starts with a four day session this week, January 26-29 at the New Orleans Museum of Art, and will be followed up by a second session later in the year. Additionally, each participating teacher will be assigned a Young Audiences teaching artist to help prepare and present new arts-integrated lessons. Participants in the training will also be have the opportunity to utilise the "Arts for Learning" Lessons, an online Common-Core Aligned literacy curriculum developed by Young Audiences Arts for Learning. 

The schools involved in the professional development program are Clancy-Maggiore Elementary School for the Arts in Kenner, Lincoln Elementary School for the Arts and Miller Wall Elementary School in Marrero, and Shirley T. Johnson Gretna Park Elementary School and Young Audiences Charter School in Gretna.
