Creative Classroom Collaboratives


Peer-to-Peer (P2P) work groups are modeled after the Empire State Partnership's Peer-to-Peer methods, which were developed with funding from the NYS Council on the Arts. Teacher teams from each school collaborate with teaching artist (TA) partners during a P2P session. The teachers and TA partners incorporate assessment of professional practice with the documentation and review of student work. The goals for the P2P sessions, which occur three times per year, include:

  • establishing peer identities and establishing assessment goal
  • identifying shared vocabulary and engagement practices
  • tackling areas of challenge and potential
  • reviewing and comparing assessment goals with the Summer Institute outcomes and with anticipated outcomes for the year to come
