ArtsEdSearch and Khan Academy Offer Free Resource Libraries for the Arts Education Community
Are you sometimes looking for solid research to back up your claims about your program’s value? ArtsEdSearch is the largest online clearinghouse for reliable arts education research to support practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders in the U.S. This searchable database (sort by age level, arts discipline, kinds of providers, and more) now holds over 300 studies gathered over eight years by the Arts Education Partnership. Many of the studies address relevant issues such as social and emotional learning, school engagement, and civic and community engagement.
And while you’re perusing ArtsEdSearch, also consider another extensive, free online resource library from Khan Academy. While traditionally associated with more academic topics, Khan Academy also offers tutorials and instructional videos in music. Topics range from music theory to music history and genre lessons; this could be a practical online resource to add to your teaching toolbox.
