Connections to Core Standards
"The most profound strength of the program is that the students’ interest was sparked and they wanted to read and speak. The children loved expressing themselves."
-3rd Grade Teacher, PS 159, Brooklyn, NY
PiP has found that an arts-based approach to classroom learning is conducive to addressing the needs of teachers and administrators in adhering to the various aspects of the Common Core Standards. While committed to enhancing classroom learning through an exploration of various art forms, all PiP programming is directly tied to the Common Core Standards, New York City's Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts and New York State Curriculum.
Our goal is to support and work with teachers by introducing them to a wide variety of learning techniques that help students develop skills to reinforce their achievement potential.
