Pre-SCALSA Institute

This institute is taught by master teachers and coaches. It is designed for arts teachers who have taught fewer than three years and for critical needs teachers in the arts. SCALSA emphasizes the development of standards-based arts curricula, instruction, and assessment by working with teachers to

  • develop standards-based arts lessons following the Curriculum Leadership Institute in the Arts (CLIA) lesson plan for future use in grant development and in future institutes;
  • study strategies for Assisting, Developing, and Evaluating Professional Teaching (ADEPT) success to include the writing of student learning objectives (SLOs) as they apply to the Teacher Evaluation System, as well as information on Summative ADEPT Formal Evaluation of Teachers (Rubric 4.0) and other evaluations currently implemented for teacher certification;
  • develop long-range lesson plans needed to meet indicators required under new evaluation/observation guidelines;
  • study arts classroom management strategies; and
  • identify teaching and learning styles to benefit student achievement.
