The Role of Specials and Student Services Educators in College and Career Ready Focused Schools

A team of writers has assisted me in documenting some phenomenal work by a group of Music, Art, Physical Education, and other Specials teachers and staff on how their classroom work can best link to the work of core-content teachers.  Find a copy of the article at link:

My congratulations and appreciation to these teachers and staff members and to co-authors Scott Frauenheim, Karin Breo, and Rob Betz for help is preparing the article. Verbatim comments from participating teachers can also be found at link: http://www.distinctiveschools.org

In these times when the important work and roles of Music, Art and other “Specials” area teachers are becoming increasingly under-valued and harder to fund, this article may also prove useful to you for advocacy purposes.  Feel free to share as you see fit.
