WASWUG Fall Gives Back
This year, WASWUG Fall 2017 is proud to support ArtsEd Washington!
You can view their website to find out more information about this amazing program.
Research shows that high-quality, sequential arts education plays a positive role in both social and academic outcomes for students. Arts learning increases student engagement, which in turn increases attendance and graduation rates.
The arts significantly impact student achievement, prepare students for college and careers, and enhance social and emotional learning. Children who are sequentially educated in the arts have a better chance of developing skills in creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
In Summer 2017, ArtsEd Washington is excited to facilitate Spokane Schools’ educators in fully implementing these standards at the local level by developing a scope and sequence guide that will articulate sequential learning in the arts. This work will be a powerful guide ArtsEd Washington intends to share with other districts around the state who also wish to develop their own arts curricula that is authentic to the students, the teachers, and the community that uses it.
