SA NOU FÈ

Arts Ed Newark te pote Swen Chòk Enfòme ak Pratik ki Santre sou Gerizon bay Edikatè Arts ak Lidè Kominotè Vil la depi janvye 2020. Pandan l ap asire livrezon bon jan kalite aprantisaj boza rijid nan espas ki an sekirite ki konsantre sou elèv yo, devlopman pwofesyonèl nou ak jèn pratikan yo konsantre sou eleman enpòtan nan anviwònman aprantisaj ki enfòme sou chòk tankou: kreye espas kote elèv yo santi yo an sekirite kiltirèl, emosyonèlman ak fizikman; bati konfyans; bay elèv yo chwa ak kontwòl sou patisipasyon; kreye pouvwa pataje ak relasyon atravè kolaborasyon; otorize jèn yo nan bati sou fòs yo; ak bati imilite kiltirèl ak repons. Devlopman Pwofesyonèl nou an modèl bon jan kalite fòmasyon, kominote aprantisaj pozitif ak efikas, ak kolaborasyon sistemik ak òganizasyonèl pou pi byen sèvi elèv nou yo ak pi laj kominote Newark la. 

 

Travay sa a se akimilasyon nan plis pase kat ane patenarya, aprantisaj, ak planifikasyon ak National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Biwo Rezilyans NJ, Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition, New Jersey Direktè ak Sipèvizè Asosyasyon ak Fondasyon pou Administrasyon Edikasyon (NJPSA/ FEA), Save the Music Foundation, ak Newark Board of Education -- Sa a se youn nan sèl modèl pou kalite travay sa a ki sipòte federalman (via NEA). 

 

Atravè seri 3 pati nou an, patisipan yo vin konprann: Ki enpak boza yo genyen sou travay sa a pou divès odyans ak elektè yo? Èske eksperyans atistik kalite siperyè se yon zouti pwisan pou jèn ki afekte chòk yo? Èske modèl ekip aprantisaj la sipòte devlopman espas atizay ki enfòme sou chòk? Atravè fòmasyon, èske Edikatè/Atis Ansèyman yo te devlope yon konpreyansyon sou sa chòk ye ak kijan li afekte yon jèn? Ki jan yo te aplike pratik chòk enfòme? Ki jan yo ka devlope rezistans epi anpeche retwomatizasyon?

 

Anplis de sa, nou kolabore plis pou konstwi yon kowòt patisipan ki te deja ale nan fòmasyon inisyal nou an pou devlope yon Kominote Aprantisaj Pwofesyonèl epi angaje yo nan 5 sesyon pou pèmèt apwofondi pratik yo, bay espas pou refleksyon, konpreyansyon twomatik pi pwofon ak elaji, plis entèraksyon. ak fasilitatè yo ak ekspètiz yo, ak sipò pou aplikasyon gide. Ane lekòl sa a, nou pral fè efò sou yon pwojè pilòt ki baze sou sit pou konstwi yon modèl lekòl ki santre sou gerizon ki enfòme sou chòk. Arts Ed Newark prezante yon opòtinite espesyal pou prezante travay edikasyon atistik kolaboratif, santre sou gerizon/enfòme sou chòk nan lekòl la, ranfòse pwogram atizay la, epi devlope patenarya pami elèv yo, pwofesè yo, anplwaye yo ak pi gwo kominote a.


 

POUKISA TRAVAY SA A ENPORTE

Fado chòk nan jèn Newark yo trè wo, yo pa abòde anpil, epi li pote gwo konsekans. Nou chèche bay adilt k ap travay nan espas ki dirije pa jèn yo zouti ki pwouve ak adaptab nan edikasyon boza pou kreye plis espas ki enfòme sou chòk ak santre gerizon.

 

Atansyon pou travay sa a ap grandi epi nou te elaji rezo a nan: APLI, NJPAC, Miami Garden, Passaic ak Paterson distri lekòl yo, ki revele bezwen enpòtan pou pwogram tankou nou an. 

 

Nan fen SY21, nou te fòme plis pase 300 edikatè ak manm kominote a.Feedback fò:

 

  • “Mwen te aprann enpòtans pwosesis gerizon an kòm yon kominote. Mwen pral definitivman itilize klas mizik mwen yo kòm yon plas kote elèv yo ka kòmanse pwosesis la.” - Miyuki Takahashi-Rivera, Pwofesè Mizik, JFK School 

 

  • “Fòmasyon sa a te ede m gen yon pi bon konpreyansyon sou fason chòk afekte nou tout, epi li te ban m kèk zouti pou m kòmanse abòde chòk nan klas atizay mwen an. Mwen te kòmanse aplike lide yon "plan sekirite" ak elèv mwen yo. Nou ap viv nan moman difisil, epi fè yo/nou vini ak yon plan sekirite te trè itil pou mwen menm ak elèv mwen yo.” -  Claudia Escalante, Pwofesè Mizik, Ann Street School

 

  • 100% moun ki reponn sondaj yo te santi ke kòm rezilta seri atelye yo te jwenn plis zouti ak/oswa estrateji pou travay ak jèn ki te afekte chòk yo.

 

  • 93% nan moun ki reponn sondaj yo te santi yo gen yon pi bon konpreyansyon sou fason chòk afekte: 

    • sèvo a.

    • kò a.

    • kominote a.

APRANN PLIS

Antanke edikatè, nou vle elèv nou yo kontan, an sante, epi prepare pou atenn pi gwo potansyèl yo. Aspirasyon sa yo pi souvan posib lè timoun yo nan yon anviwonman ki an sekirite (fizik, sosyal, ak sikolojik), sitou lè yo gen plis enpak COVID-19 la. Pandan dezan, AEN devlope apwòch kreyatif pou reponn ak ACE jèn nou yo (eksperyans negatif timoun yo) epi li konprann ke edikasyon boza kapab ofri tou de espas/priz ki an sekirite ak metòd ansèyman inik.

 

Newark Trust for Education Safe and Supporting Learning Environment Summit 2021 (SSLE) te konsantre sou pratik gerizon santre nan lekòl yo pou ede elèv yo ak fanmi yo devlope rezistans. Videyo sa a se te yon pati nan yon sesyon sou inisyativ Arts Ed Newark Trauma Informed Care, ankouraje edikasyon atizay ak pratik gerizon santre epi yo ka wè anba a.

Through our 3-part series, participants gain insight into:

1

What is the impact of the arts on this work for various audiences and constituents?

4

Through training, have particpants developed an understanding of what trauma is and how it impacts a young person?

2

Are high-quality arts experiences a powerful tool for trauma-impacted youth?

5

How have they implemented trauma-informed practices?

3

Does the learning team model support the development of trauma-informed arts spaces?

6

How can they build resilience and prevent retraumatization?

Additionally, we further collaborate to build a cohort of participants who have already gone through our initial training to develop a Professional Learning Community and engage in 5 sessions to allow deepening of their practice, provide space for reflection, deeper and expanded trauma understanding, further interaction with facilitators and their expertise, and guided implementation support.

As the 2022-2023 school year began, AEN initiated efforts to explore the ways that arts-based trauma-informed/ healing-centered engagement can best be implemented as a whole-school model. Building upon the success of the training series, AEN is partnering with the Lincoln School, a PreK- 8th-grade school of approximately 400 students in Newark’s west ward. The school’s faculty has participated in monthly healing centered engagement trainings with our staff and teaching artist facilitators.

 

We are excited to finalize a school-wide healing centered action plan at the end of the school year.

Arts Ed Newark presents a special opportunity to introduce collaborative, healing-centered/trauma-informed arts education work to the school, strengthen the arts programming, and develop partnerships among students, faculty, staff, and the greater community.

WHY THIS WORK MATTERS

 

The burden of trauma in Newark youth is very high, largely unaddressed, and bears deep consequences. We seek to provide adults working in youth-led spaces the proven and adaptable tools of arts education to create more trauma-informed and healing-centered spaces.

Attention for this work grows and we have expanded the network to: APLI, NJPAC, Miami Garden, Passaic and Paterson school districts, revealing the critical need for programs like ours.

At the end of SY21, we have trained 300+ educators and community members.

Feedback is strong:

HEALING AS A COMMUNITY

"I've learned the importance of the healing process as a community. I will definitely use my music classes as a place where students can start the process."

CREATING A SAFETY PLAN

"This training helped me have a better understanding about how trauma affects us all, and it gave me some tools to start addressing trauma in my arts classroom. I started applying the idea of a 'safety plan' with my students. We are living in difficult times, and have them/us come up with a safety plan has been very helpful to me and my students."

LEARN MORE

 

As educators, we want our students to be happy, healthy, and prepared to reach their highest potential. These aspirations are most often possible when children are in save environments (physical, social, and psychological), especially given the added impact of COVID-19.

For two years, AEN has developed creative approaches to respond to our youth's ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) and understands that arts education can offer both safe spaces/outlets and unique teaching methods.

The Newark Trust for Education and Safe and Supporting Learning Environment Summit 2021 (SSLE) was focused on healing-centered practices in schools to help students and families build resilience.

This video was part of a session on the Arts Ed Newark Trauma Informed Care Initiative promoting arts education and healing-centered practices.
