Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program Model

Nov 06, 2017

Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program Model

  • The mission of Advantage Arts Academy (AAA) is essentially to increase student performance in every subject through the full integration and alignment of the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) model. We believe that this program can also help improve student core academic capacity, emotional well-being, and social skills.

    A student doesn't have to want to become an artist or have musical ability to benefit from attending AAA. All students are capable of creativity and the BTSALP Model has facets that can fit every child's needs and levels. Why consider enrolling in a school with arts integration? Here's why:

    Reason #1: Integration
    Students can express themselves in all core subject areas since art will be integrated throughout all subjects to improve academic, emotion, social, and promote a love of learning. Hence why we have arts integration at the heart of the diagram.

    Reason #2: Collaboration
    Our Arts Integration Specialists collaborate with classroom teachers to make lessons purposeful in enhancing student mastery of the curriculum.

    Reason #3: Side-by-Side Teaching
    Classroom teachers and Arts Integration Specialists will conduct lessons together to improve student engagement and enhance understanding of subject matter. This will happen in all classrooms at all grade levels.

    Reason #4: Continual Learning
    We expect our students to keep learning and progressing and hold our teachers to the same standard. We have great professional development partners to expand the knowledge base of our classroom teachers.

    Reason #5: Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow
    Enroll in Advantage Arts Academy to see how your student can be creatively set free while growing academically. Art can reach students in ways and methods not normally used and allows for students to discover areas they may be passionate about. Advantage Arts Academy will open August 2019 - enroll where creativity meets education!
