WELCOME TO THE DC COLLABORATIVE’S ARTS FOR EVERY STUDENT CATALOGUE 2011-2012

Dear Principals and Teachers,

We are pleased to provide you with a selection of high-quality arts and humanities experiences to benefit students from across Washington, DC.

In these pages you can plan some of the highlights of the academic year, making a lasting impression on your students, some of whom will be experiencing professional theater and museum arts exhibitions for the very first time.

We provide arts experiences to thousands of students each year with a total of more than 350,000 students taking field trips through Arts for Every Student (AFES) since our founding. We are entering our 13th year of providing free transportation and tickets to DC public and chartered public school students and are looking forward to growing our stellar roster of members; adding to our listing of arts experiences; and delivering services to more students.

We invite you to explore our catalogue featuring a wide variety of arts opportunities for students of all ages. Explore the many wonderful arts institutions which offer spectacular arts experiences that will advance your curriculum and readily map to standards and to the Teaching and Learning Framework.

Washington, DC, is home to some of the greatest arts institutions in the world and each DC student studying Shakespeare should see it acted on the stage through a Shakespeare Theatre Company production at the Harman Center for the Arts; and each DC student studying U.S. History should have the chance to see the Star-Spangled Banner on display at the National Museum of American History. These are just two examples of how curriculum can become dynamic and engaging through connecting to the significant resources here in our backyard.

We are committed to ensuring all students have access to the arts and humanities, because we believe arts access leads to student success.

Louise Kennelly

Executive Director

WHAT IS THE DC ARTS AND HUMANITIES EDUCATION COLLABORATIVE?The DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative works to strengthen and promote the arts and humanities as basic and integral to a high-quality education for all students in DC public and chartered public schools. Comprised of more than 60 arts and cultural organizations, DC Collaborative initiatives include: Arts for Every Student, Professional Development for Teachers and Arts Educators, and the Arts Education Initiative.

WHAT IS ARTS FOR EVERY STUDENT?Arts for Every Student provides increased access for all DC public and charter school students to attend arts and cultural events offered by our member providers. Through this program, DC public and charter schools are eligible for free tickets and transportation to local cultural events, supported by the DC Collaborative. Schools with PreK-K students may select a free in-school performance as an alternative to a trip to a cultural venue.

Professional Development workshops also are offered through the DC Collaborative member providers to DC public and chartered public school teachers. These workshops offer teachers the opportunity to learn innovative ways to invigorate classroom instruction by using arts techniques. Teachers work with experienced arts educators to learn to use dance, music, theater, visual arts, and the humanities to teach academic lessons and address State Learning Standards. Many Professional Development Workshops are also aligned with the Teaching and Learning Framework for DCPS teachers.

Introduction to AFES Preview Catalogue

To make your experience with the AFES Online Registration system easier, we’ve created this preview guide of event offerings at cultural organizations, and professional development workshops for teachers. If you are the Key Communicator for your school, please feel free to print multiple copies and distribute to colleagues in your school building. This will help your colleagues select a trip that best fits their grade grouping’s learning goals and plans for year.

HOW TO USE THIS PREVIEW CATALOGUE:For the Arts for Every Student program, the first page of this guide lists all the events by grade grouping in a grid, with corresponding curriculum ties. This grid is a helpful tool to match up classroom learning with a selected event. For the remainder of the guide, the AFES events are listed by grade grouping. Each event will consist of a brief description of the event, date(s) offered, time(s), location, and curriculum ties.

Once choices have been made for all grade groupings, the Key Communicator should log on to the AFESOnline Registration system, www.dccollaborative.org, to reserve tickets. A step-by-step instruction as to how to reserve tickets for your school is included in the AFES School Handbook. If you have not yet received your copy of the AFES School Handbook, please contact our office.
