Arts Abroad: The Wolf Trap Approach Travels to Singapore
Jul 07, 2015
After preparing for six months, Akua, Jennifer, and the Wolf Trap Institute team are finally in Singapore! Since arriving, they’ve been busy training teachers, administrators, and families. The team has already given 6 hours of professional development to 270 early children educators, working alongside our arts education partners in Singapore – the National Arts Council (NAC) and the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA).
Through Family Involvement Workshops and other trainings that incorporate elements of music, drama, and dance, participants are able to immediately put to practice the Wolf Trap approach. The Singapore Curriculum Framework already incorporates arts education for older students but NAC and ECDA invited Wolf Trap to help expand that effort to early childhood curriculum.
Educators and administrators who want to incorporate arts-based learning are encouraged to find lesson plans, videos, and research at education.wolftrap.org.
