ii AIE Newsletter Compendium PREFACE Between April 2016 and April 2017, the Arts in Education (AIE) program released five quarterly newsletter issues that explored the five arts disciplines — dance, media arts, music, theater, and visual arts — inherent in current AIE grantees’ projects. Each issue contained a feature article by a noted expert in the specific arts discipline that brought important research-based understandings to the discipline’s instruction and integration with other core academic subjects. The features also provided insight to the goals, outcomes, and products of Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination (AEMDD) and Professional Development for Arts Educators (PDAE) projects “spotlighted” in each issue. Additionally, interviews with key contributors to the 2014 National Core Arts Standards provide helpful insights as to the motivations behind the first revision of the voluntary national arts standards since 1995, essential differences in the two sets of standards, and suggestions for use of the new standards in P-12 classrooms. Among the significant changes is the creation of media arts standards, establishing first-time autonomy for this 21st-century arts discipline. Finally, for three of the arts disciplines — dance, music, and media arts — resources available from the Arts in Education National Program grantee, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, offer helpful arts integration “how-to’s” and ideas for lessons and activities
