On September 30, 2014, ESU #11 Staff Development Director Kate Hatch and ESU 17 Staff Development Director Jeff McQuiston facilitated a workshop to help Fine Arts teachers align their existing curriculum to the newly written Nebraska State Fine Arts Standards. During the course of the day, the teachers learned about the Fine Arts standards, and then worked to ensure that all standards are currently being taught in the curriculum. Any concepts that are not currently being taught will be worked into the existing curriculum to ensure that there is a proper scope and sequence of the concepts. Teachers were also able to collaborate and explore possible ways to integrate these standards into their classrooms.
