    external resource from Education Week, Arts Standards Quietly Take Hold in 14 States
    standards

    As of early this year, 14 states and the Department of Defense Education Activity had either adopted the National Core Arts Standards in their entirety or written new ones based on them. Several more states are expected to follow suit in the coming months. The National Core Arts Standards mark a significant development in arts education: They include, for the first time, a fifth artistic discipline, media arts, as well as guidelines for individual grades instead of broader “grade bands.” They are more accessible online than previous standards, and come paired with model assessments to guide teachers.

    external resource from National Endowment for the Humanities, The Political Theory of Hannah Arendt: NEH Summer Seminar - Applications Due March 1, 2017
    arendt

    This Seminar offers stimulating dialogue for School Teachers (K-12) of all disciplines, including history, social studies, philosophy, literature, philosophy, and government. Given the varied responses to the recent election and the documented increase in incidents of hateful speech and other attacks on school campuses and in classrooms across the country, having a space to learn and practice how to engage difficult conversations on controversial subjects is needed now more than ever. Although the seminar emphasizes the analysis of history and political theory, it serves to foster community among school teachers and change-makers interested in practicing and encouraging critical thinking about contested political and ethical issues framed by what Hannah Arendt called “the human condition of plurality.” The seminar will take place over the course of four weeks at UC Davis, June 25 through July 21, 2017.
