The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) writing teams representing dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts will meet in Reston, Virginia, June 19-22. The five teams, convening in-person for the first time, are drafting the Next Generation Arts Standards. They will gather, along with NCCAS Leadership, at the offices of the National Association for Music Education, the National Arts Education Association, and the College Board for a series of high-focus writing sessions in each of their disciplines.
The meeting will feature a live video broadcast session entitled Embedding Enduring Understandings, Essential Questions and Cornerstone Assessments into the new Core Arts Standards, on Wednesday, June 20, at 3:45 p.m. EST. The session will be streamed from the NCCAS wiki at http://nccas.wikispaces.com; questions and comments will be accepted on a companion live blog.
