Project Amplify

Project Amplify was born as a way to disseminate the work from our Project Elevate Federal grant. In 2017-2018, four times throughout the year, our Arts Integration Specialist, Jessica DiLorenzo, modeled highly effective arts integration strategies in additional 22 elementary schools in our district. Each school selected teachers who were interested in creating a “professional learning lab” in their classroom where other interested teachers could come observe model lessons during their planning periods. Almost 100 additional teachers to arts integration had the opportunity to observe model lessons led by the Arts Integration Specialist in either the K-2 setting or 3-5 setting, and then participate in online reflection meetings following Jessica’s visit.
