Building Learning Communities through Arts & Culture (BLCTAC)
Year 3 (2011)


Now in its third year, Building Learning Communities through Arts & Culture focuses on Building Capacity in the Schools. By providing the Teacher Leadership Model, the focus transfers from the students as the main learner to the classroom teachers. Student focus will remain on 6th Grade vocabulary and Social Studies while teacher participation will expand from two core teachers to Grades 6-8 teachers, all curriculum, department heads and administration.
