New York State Alliance for Arts Education - 2005

Funded in March, 2005: $60000 for 2 years
The Dana grant will fund NYSAAE to initiate a three-phase program: Phase 1 is the creation of "The Toolkit" whereby NYSAAE will develop a Toolkit to help teaching artist trainees and arts specialists plan, implement, and evaluate its work with students and teachers in elementary and secondary schools; Phase 2 will consist of six training seminars, led by the project's master teaching artist, in collaboration with a master district-based arts educator/supervisor who have had successful experiences collaborating with their counterparts in the field; Phase 3 is dissemination and replication (six months), in which NYSAAE will disseminate information about the training program through its electronic newsletter (mailing list of 1500 individuals) and Web site.
