P.S. 69 Vincent D. Grippo School is a K-5 school in Brooklyn that provides a deep and challenging curriculum in visual arts, music, dance and theater, provided by a collaborative team of skilled professionals. Visual arts and music teachers lead the way, along with contributions from all teachers, to integrate the arts across the curriculum. Strong relationships with outstanding arts organizations complete this dynamic framework. All curriculum is developed in alignment with the NYC DOE’s Blueprint for the Arts, the Common Core Standards and Danielson's Framework for Teaching. Additionally, P.S. 69 is pioneering the development and use of formative assessments in the visual arts. On this Showcase visit, educators will learn how to naturally infuse literacy in the arts, see systems and structures that bring arts programming to all students and understand how to use the arts to bolster early language acquisition. Each experience helps to build a student’s ability to read, write, listen and speak, which helps them to be successful in all areas.
