Introduction To Music Blueprint Professional development
The Office of the Arts and Special Projects provides citywide professional development in the implementation of the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Professional development sessions are led by master teachers—outstanding public school arts teachers identified by the DOE—and teaching artists—professional artists from local cultural organizations. During these sessions, teachers explore the five Blueprint strands of arts education, and learn strategies for lesson plan building and engaging children in the arts. Teachers participate in hands-on projects, allowing them to directly apply the lessons learned at training sessions to their classrooms.
