Arts in the Schools
ACHF Arts Education
One goal for our residencies is to show how education, including non-arts, can be greatly enhanced using the arts. The residency will be considered successful if the following criteria are met: 1) Practice the use of the structure of a beginning, middle and end to create a story. 2) Practice basic poetry writing techniques including pre-writing, drafting and revising poems, using similes and imagery, lining the poem. 3) Share work through readings in the classroom. 4) Experience how creative writing helps us explore, celebrate and value the people and groups in our community. To evaluate the process, we will distribute a survey to instructors to evaluate the success of the residency in teaching the state objectives and creating excitement for learning. Community performances and art shows will also provide feedback by participation from parents, showing excitement for the arts and their child's experience.
Teacher feedback was very positive. The teachers felt that she was prepared and allowed student to show their creativity throughout the project.
