2018 Fine Arts in Title IV, Part A – Lesson Design Project

The 2018 Fine Arts in Title IV, Part A – Lesson Design Project is a two part program open to all Florida certified fine arts teachers.  Up to two teachers in each of the four arts content areas (dance, music, theatre and visual arts) will be selected through an application review to create an original lesson plan resource for CPALMS, and awarded funds to attend their respective state level professional development conference (FDEO, FMEA, FATE and FAEA). The goal of this initiative is to build capacity among Florida’s fine arts teachers through the development of high quality resources accessible via CPALMS and to provide a funding opportunity to enable teachers to receive professional development through their state level organizations.
