Dynamic Evidence! Design, Deploy and Declare the Value of Music in Education

  • thumbnail for Elizabeth Sokolowski
  • Who knows what the value of music education is in your school district and community? This session will focus on effective strategies for organizing, collecting, interpreting, and sharing tangible evidence about our music education programs. The objective is real time accountability for what we do and who we involve. How our students perform in our classrooms, and beyond, is a critical component in transforming advocacy to meet the increasing demands of the 21st century educational arena. (No Handout Available)
