MediaWorks is an Arts-in-Education program designed to integrate media arts with Common Core curriculum to create new pathways for student success.
Proctors is working with the Steinmetz Career and Leadership Academy at Schenectady High School and the Discovery Academy at Albany High School to integrate media arts into English Language Arts and Global History curriculum. A professional filmmaker works with a team of teachers to develop and implement new learning pathways, based on Common Core standards and Project-Based Learning, to increase student engagement, attendance and success.
With support from General Electric, the New York State Council on the Arts, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the Department of Labor and Capital Region BOCES, Proctors has endeavored to change how the 21st century classroom works to bolster student achievement and success.
