Four-Year Plan Goals

Goal One: To integrate the arts across academics to support students' varied learning styles, intellectual risk taking, and engagement in interdisciplinary thinking.

Goal Two: To develop an introductory music program that incorporates music production/songwriting.

Approach

Goal One: The work starts by cultivating buy-in and shared expectations for arts integration via PD for the full faculty. Then, one academic department at a time works closely with guest artists to develop arts-integrated lessons or units through residencies, co-planning and -teaching, and curriculum documentation. The work scales up to a new department each year, with teachers sharing out at regular staff development sessions their progress and challenges along the way.

Goal Two: ETA supports the new music program through PD support for the licensed teacher and making big investments in equipment, including building out a recording booth. The teacher adjusts her prior curriculum to best meet the needs of Victory's student community, and ETA supports her further development through PD and Network opportunities.

Arts Partnerships

Goal One: Abrons Arts Center

Outcome

Goal One: Teachers will have new tools and strategies to engage learners in diverse, arts-rich ways. Students will have multiple access points in their academic learning and in developing their individual voices and opinions on varied topics.

Goal Two: All 9th grade students will have a rigorous introduction to music and develop new modes of artistic literacy and self-expression.
