As the TELA Project is built upon the TEAL Project, it is advised that one or two TEAL-experienced educators attend from each district or charter, along with new participants that include an EL lead and/or art lead and administrator.
The arts have the ability to mitigate differences and to create an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. This professional development is designed for the TELA Project districts and charter, focusing on the challenges faced by all students and specifically English Learners. Teachers and administrators will learn how the arts can be applied to build social and emotional competencies that impact literacy and academic growth in the multiple subject classroom.
Technology Enhanced Arts Learning (TEAL) is a project of the LA County Arts Education Collective, developed and implemented by the Los Angeles County Office of Education in partnership with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
