Carol Kocivar visits Performing Arts Workshop to discuss the ARISE project and PACT 21. In both these rigorous studies, the Workshop looks at how the performing arts help students prepare for school work and life in the 21 century. The ARISE project found that students who participated in the performing arts became more confident, did better on Math tests and actually wanted to come to school! In PACT 21, the Workshop plans to look at specific areas in 21 Century Learning through authentic assessment developed with teaching artists and classroom teachers in partnership.
