What's New in 22/23
“Exploration is curiosity put into action.”
- Don Walsh.
Our theme of EXPLORE! will permeate all courses and guide our instruction from Theater to Engineering and Coding. New courses are being offered and continue to be divided into ages appropriate for peer learning. As always, our courses will be taught by passionate professionals in their field. We have expanded our teacher pool and are excited about the new teachers this year–watch for their profiles that will be posted.
ENHANCED CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT
The Ziegfeld Arts Academy is growing! We are now offering TWO days of enriching instructions. Come for one or both days, and know that your children are safe and engaged in high quality learning opportunities. We have full days for all grades on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Can’t wait to have double the time with your amazing children!
We are thrilled to have a NEW Curriculum Advisor who will be working to ensure that the curriculum being taught is exciting, relevant and of the highest quality. Becca Price is a dynamic curriculum designer who has been involved in education for 20 years. She homeschooled her six children for eight years before becoming a full-time teacher. She has taught middle school science for the last seven years and is passionate about designing enriching and joyful project-based units. Becca has a bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology and a master’s degree in Instructional Design with a focus on curriculum and digital learning.
We are offering a Musical, ELF JR, in the fall and then two comedies in the spring. NIGHT AT THE WAX MUSEUM is for our teens and ENCHANTED BOOKSTORE is for our younger group. As always, these shows will be full Ziegfeld Theater shows. We encourage some parent volunteering but these are taught by professionals at the Theater and the production value of these shows will be on par with ALL shows at the Ziegfeld Theater.
We are excited to have more tech available to our students this year! Our teachers will be able to use devices where applicable while keeping the focus on fun group focused learning.
We will continue to offer the classes you loved last year, and we also have the NEW offerings of Backstage Design, Entrepreneurship/Personal Finance, Graphic Design, Lego Building, Literature/Book Club: Historical fiction focus (exploration!), Math Concepts, Reading Skills, Science, Spanish and Written Word.
