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.

"My eCoach has been the best tool I have used. eCoach is a user-friendly, time saving, and a universal website. The best part of using eCoach is being able to design a website that enhances learning for students. In such a technology age, 8 and 9 year old students need an outlet for keeping them engaged. My eCoach provides that opportunity for my students, they are able to make the connections with real world applications, use them at school and extend their learning at home. They can talk to each other, share their experiences and what they have learned. What more can we ask for? My-eCoach does it all! "
