Partners in Arts & Learning Planning Manual: A Guide for Arts Education Planning and Advocacy Teams.
Partners in Arts and Learning (PAL) is a continuous school-and community-based program which promotes arts in education in all the arts disciplines for all students; encourages the use of professional artists in classrooms as teachers and exemplars; promotes the use of artists as leaders of professional development workshops; builds support for the arts in education; and supports planning and implementation of the Maine Learning Results. This planning manual is designed to help schools and their communities form successful, working arts in education advocacy teams. Drawing upon national and local resources and staff experience, the manual offers step-by-step assistance in finding and recruiting team members, getting the team to identify and work toward common goals, inventorying community and school resources for arts education, developing a 3-year plan for improving arts education for all students, and publicizing and garnering public support for arts education. Specifically, it tells how to apply for PAL grants and provides sample forms and resource lists. (BT)
