The CPS Arts Education Back 2 School session is a one-day professional learning event hosted on two different days. Arts teachers can choose which day works best for them and their schools. This year, B2S will introduce CPS teachers to the Arts Content Framework, and the corresponding instructional shifts necessary to meet the cognitive demand of the newly adopted Illinois Arts Learning Standards. Teachers will have the opportunity to unpack the framework with a special focus on student-directed lessons and activities.

This professional development will provide the following:

  • An introduction to the new Arts Content Framework
  • Implementation strategies to support the instructional shifts outlined in the Arts Content Framework
  • Deep exploration of student-driven activities by arts discipline
