Welcome artists!

Introduction to your DeFranco art teacher, Mrs. DeLong!

  delonge@bangorsd.org


Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ericka DeLong and I am the art teacher at DeFranco Elementary School. In addition to my professional art background, I am an expert art instructor with 30 years experience.  Art period is 40 minutes long and is taught once during the 5-day cycle. During this time students in fifth to sixth grade will apply knowledge of elements and principles of art that they have learned in K-4 to create more advanced forms of art. Students will perform self - evaluations, comparison and reflection on their work and the work of others. Students will demonstrate skills in the use of materials that are appropriate for their age. I look forward to teaching your child in fifth and sixth grade. If you have any questions my extension is 3314.

Sincerely,

Ericka DeLong

2. Did you know that the federal No Child Left Behind Act clearly mandates the Arts as a core academic subject?

3. Do you think the Arts are an integral part of a well-rounded education?

4. Did you know skills learned in the Arts directly transfer to reduced drop-out rates, especially in economically disadvantaged children?

5. Did you know that arts and music education are mandatory in countries that consistently rank at the top in mathematics and science test scores, such as Japan, Hungary, and the Netherlands?

6. Did you know that arts education has a measurable impact on at-risk youth in deterring delinquent behavior problems and reducing truancy?

 

II. Please view Steve Stone Davis Publications & The Partnership for 21st Century Skills PDF on the importance of the arts in education!

 

http://www.sde.idaho.gov/site/humanities/docs/Stone%20NAEA%202008.pdf

II. Visual stimulation enhances learning and makes it more enjoyable. Art can introduce social studies, literature, civics, and even science and math in an immediate, tangible way. With Picturing America, students develop a deeper understanding of history and our shared human—and American—experience. Picturing America on the Internet!        http://picturingamerica.salemstate.edu/unit_plans_2009.html
