                  Partners in Education

                  Kennedy CenterIn 2010, Young Auditorium and The School District of Janesville were accepted as a team in the Kennedy Center's Partners in Education program.  The team participates in ongoing training to develop the Reaching New Horizons program, which provides professional development training in arts integration for teachers in the region.  Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form.  The purpose of the program is to empower teachers with the skills and knowledge needed to connect an art form (music, drama, dance, visual art) with another subject area, such as math, science, social studies or reading.  The goal of the program is to best meet the needs of all learners by engaging multiple learning modalities: visual, aural and kinesthetic, and providing opportunities for the different ways in which students acquire, process, and demonstrate what they know.

                  The Young Auditorium and School District of Janesville are members of the Partners in Education program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Selected because of their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of education in and through the arts, the Partnership Team participates in collaborative efforts to provide professional development opportunities in the arts for educators.
