We're looking to establish a mailing list of writers and editors who can help us on an ongoing, as-needed basis.
WHAT WE NEED:
We are an entirely volunteer-run organization. We often find ourselves needing a second set of eyes to review and edit lesson plans, mailings, and so on. We are hoping to establish a mailing list of folks who have experience with writing and editing whom we can email volunteer editing oppotunities to on as-needed basis. These opportunities would go to the entire list, and volunteers would be able to respond and commit to helping as they were able.
HOW THIS WILL HELP
We are an organization that empowers classroom teachers in schools without an art program to expose their students to high-quality art education.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our (free) product. This opportunity will ensure that our communications meet our standards.
Doodles Academy aims to expand children's access to high-quality arts education, envisioning a world where every child receives an arts education that inspires and rewards creativity, growth and problem solving.
Doodles achieves this goal by providing an online curriculum that includes video examples, lesson plans, supply lists, and links to Common Core and Visual Art standards. Doodles Academy makes it easy for educators of all types and experience levels to bring a comprehensive and open-ended art curriculum to their students.
Doodles Academy projects allow room for every child to tell her own story. By providing lessons that scaffold skills and ideas, students are challenged to think complexly without becoming overwhelmed. Discussion and exploration is built into each project, encouraging students to find their own creative solutions. http://www.doodles-academy.org/
FUN FACT ABOUT ART EDUCATION
Kids with access to art education do better on standardized tests, stay in school longer, and get more advanced degrees (really!).
