PAEA/PDE Workshop: Student Learning Objectives
This workshop addresses components of the new statewide teacher evaluation system being implemented by the PA Department of Education (PDE) effective for the academic year 2014-2015.
In this new system, a percentage of the evaluation for a teacher of subjects such as art, music, PE, FCC, and other non-testing or elective subjects will be based on designing and implementing student learning objectives (SLO’s) in the classroom. Designed for teachers and administrators, this workshop provides critical information on SLO’s presented by PDE representative O. David Deitz, as well as first hand experiences from teachers who have previously piloted this new system.
Presented in partnership with the PA Art Education Association (PAEA) and the PA Department of Education (PDE) and the Professional Institute for Educators, this will help you get ready now for the changes affecting student learning, teacher evaluation, and student learning objectives. Participants earn three PA Act 48 activity hours. Lunch and Free Parking provided.

Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at the University of the Arts courses create professional development opportunities for K-12 educators that focus on teaching with primary sources in an arts context to enhance cross-curricular learning in all grades.
Discover the basics you’ll need to effectively understand and use the vast resources of the Library of Congress in your teaching. Learn how to differentiate between primary and secondary sources, navigate and access primary source items from the Library of Congress, and discover the different formats primary sources have — all to help students explore the ways people have documented their stories throughout history. You’ll discover sources that use the lenses of arts artifacts such as photographs, writings and imagery to enhance student learning in a range of subject areas and grade levels.
