WAYNE, Neb. -- Wayne State College's School of Education and Counseling will engage in a new partnership with Educational Service Unit 2 teachers who aim to integrate arts into their content area.
A $1.5-million federal Arts in Education – Professional Development for Arts Educators grant will fund tuition at Wayne State College for ESU2 teachers who wish to take part in the program.
Educational Service Unit 2 was awarded the grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The department awarded 20 projects across the nation, representing 14 states. The project, “Mastering the Arts,” is a four-year program designed to improve classroom teacher appreciation of the arts while improving their ability to integrate arts into classroom instruction in American history, science, math and language arts.
Participants in the program will enroll in a master’s degree program of study through Wayne State College. Workshops will be held each fall, winter and spring during weekends as well as a summer institute.
