Professional Development with LA Unified School District

Posted in STEAM Education on

We are proud to partner with Education Closet to support the Los Angeles Unified School District to to transform their school and bring true equity to students via Arts Integration and other disciplines. We provided 56 Art Integration Kits for grades 2 and 3 to be used throughout the school year, and Amanda K. from Education Closet conducted an in-person professional development session for the teachers.

"Amanda's focus was to engage, collaborate, and teach the teachers in a hands-on, arts-integrated design so they can be confident and comfortable during their instruction with students," Rita G., Pacon Market Manager, said.

During the professional development teachers worked through the lessons featured in both the 2nd grade and 3rd grade Art Integration Kits.

"The teachers were very eager and positive throughout the professional development session, and very engaged the whole time," Amanda said. "They were kind enough to share their great level of excitement to teach in this manner, and to have access to these kinds of solutions."

The teachers will conduct the pre-assessment with their students prior to teaching the core lessons within the kits. We're excited to share the findings and stories as the year continues.
