Arts Toolkits

This web site provides K-12 teachers with high-quality teaching resources that bring the world of music, arts, dance, and drama into the classroom. Four toolkits include lesson plans, idea cards, glossaries, and many special features. The lesson plans are based on video segments taken from KET programs. There are materials for dance, drama, music, and visual arts. Each discipline has its own section and special features that help make that discipline come alive.

"I am in the process of converting my moodle and portal webpages that I use in Pinellas County to my eCoach websites. I have decided to break my websites up into units instead of courses, because I keep getting switched around from various grade levels and content areas (Reading vs. Language Arts) - But I don’t want to lose my lessons. For example I currently teach 7th grade reading and we do a unit on Egypt, but two years ago I taught 6th grade and we also touched on Egypt. I want my resources to be middle school level and fluid enough for me to adapt to whatever grade I’m teaching. It will take some time, but I think it will help out in the long run. Thanks again for eCoach!! I Love It!!"
