GlobalGiving's generous support continues to be used to sustain Learning & Achieving Through the Arts (LATA), Inner-City Arts' core instructional-day program which provides in-depth arts education to Grades K-6 students attending LAUSD schools. LATA continues to met or exceeded the proposed goals and objectives for the project year. For the period May 2011-2012 LATA served 7,776 students in 232 classes from urban schools in Central Los Angeles, during six 7-week terms. Staff designed lessons and developed curricula in compliance with California state arts standards. The curricula focused on two key areas: remedial Language development needs (for K-6 grade English Learners) and arts learning towards meeting grade level standards.

The curricula incorporated 1) best practices for teaching English Learners; 2) language arts standards; 3) arts learning standards, 4) multiple intelligence instructional approaches; 5) hands-on learning methods; 6) differentiated strategies for engaged learning; and 7) cultural relevance. Lesson plans utilized pedagogical methods that have proven effective in fostering language development in English Learners, including cooperative learning, collaborative interaction and sheltered instructional approaches that built on the students’ experiences and cultural perspectives.

thank you all.
