Designing the Arts Learning Community: Model Professional Development Programs

by Dawn M. Ellis

Feb 3, 2009
Dawn Ellis and her team scoured the country for exemplary professional development programs in arts education to inform the content of the handbook and create a searchable database of 50 model programs. The handbook is both a guide and a reference resource for arts coordinators, principals, superintendents of instruction and anyone who designs professional development for K-12 arts education. It synthesizes documents, interviews, responses from outstanding practices in the field as well as literature regarding professional development and arts education. The programs profiled, which cover a wide range of partnership types, were selected because they
  • Address the scale, scope, or perspectives of school districts
  • Provide evidence of evaluation, research, and/or reflective practice
  • Provide insights into approaches relevant to a variety of communities, students, and arts disciplines, or
  • Involve education reform that includes a strong arts component
