Greetings to all:
I am forwarding information about the December Town Meeting via Satellite. These Town meetings are sponsored by the US Department of Education. Secretary Riley and Bill Ivey, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts will discuss research and practical applications for various issues.

The main reason I want you all to know about this pivots around the thread we have been discussing about curriculum, instruction, and assessment. IF YOU SET UP A SITE, YOUR INPUT WILL BE CONSIDERED and HEARD THAT NIGHT. Even if you can't set up a site in your community, you can respond with your ideas, opinions, and experiences.

Best regards,

"The road is better than the inn."

********************************************** National Teleconference "Arts Literacy for a Changing America" Tuesday, December 1, 1998 - 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. *********************************************** How does learning about dance, theater, music or the visual arts motivate children to learn, boost achievement in math, science and other subjects, raise students' self-esteem, contribute to their understanding of cultural differences, or enhance creativity? Research suggests that the arts are potentially one of education's most powerful assets and can be a key part of educational reform efforts. "Arts Literacy for a Changing America," a special teleconference, will address these critical issues concerning arts and education. U.S. Secretary of Education Richard Riley and Chairman Bill Ivey of the National Endowment for the Arts will lead a discussion with educators, community leaders, business people and others on: -- ways to examine schools' arts programs to determine if they are enabling students to achieve high standards; -- strategies for integrating arts assessments into overall school improvement efforts; and, -- the results of the recent NAEP Arts Assessment of eighth grade students in visual art, music, theater, and dance. This is an opportunity for you and other community leaders to meet and discuss actions you can take to provide strong arts education programs in your schools. ****************************** SATELLITE COORDINATES ****************************** TEST TIME: 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. Eastern time; countdown clock at 7:25 p.m. (Note: we cannot check signals before the test time) PROGRAM: 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Eastern time C-Band: Telstar 4 / transponder 1; Orbital Location: 89 West; Downlink Frequency: 3720 MHZ; Vertical Polarity; Audio subcarriers: 6.2 and 6.8 Ku-Band: SBS6 /transponder 15; Orbital Location 74 West; Downlink frequency 12068 MHZ; Horizontal Polarity; Audio subcarriers: 6.2 and 6.8 For technical assistance on the day of the program, call 703-284-3556.
