New 42nd Street - 2006

Funded in March, 2006: $35000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant will support the professional development and training of teaching artists to be undertaken by The New Victory Theater. This pilot program builds upon the Theater's pre-existing training program for teaching artists, with the intensiveness of their professional development increasing through each of the project's three stages: 1) "Planning, Assessment and Evaluation Strategies;" 2) "Arts Education and the Special Needs Student;" and 3) "The Artist as Teacher." The objective is to provide teaching artists with the skills and resources to design, assess and evaluate effective arts learning lesson plans (Pre K – 12) that can be adapted to individual classroom needs and integrated within the core curriculum.
