Improving the Quality of Artists' Residency Programs: A Rubric for Teaching Artists
Norman, Janis
Teaching Artist Journal, v2 n4 p212-226 2004
How do you make something better? This is a fundamental question of professional development the national network of Young Audiences (YA) undertook to answer about its artist residency programs. The basic question assumes that those asking the question know what the "something" is, how effective it is in its current state, and what "it" is intended to do. This question presumes we can recognize improvement when we see it. Such assumptions are often taken for granted, and the overlooked knowledge gaps become stumbling blocks to improving quality. In this article, the author talks about the Young Audience's national network which provides the first field-tested rubric to clarify the quality of Teaching Artist Classroom Residencies. She describes the rubric for teaching artists' residency design and implementation.
