University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - Wolf Trap
An arts integrated early learning program of the Arts-Based Collaborative.
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - Wolf Trap is the first university-named Affiliate Program of the nationally renown Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning through the Arts. UTC-Wolf Trap serves grades Pre-K- 1st by partnering a Wolf Trap Teaching Artist with a classroom teacher that co-facilitate arts integrated instruction targeting literacy and social emotional learning needs. Each Wolf Trap Classroom Residency consists of 16-sessions that include:
- 1 classroom observation where the Wolf Trap Teaching Artist meets the students and gets a sense of the learning environment and classroom space.
- 4 planning sessions between the Wolf Trap Teaching Artist and the classroom teacher to customize a residency that supports students' needs.
- 11 contact sessions where the Wolf Trap Teaching Artist engages performing arts elements from music, dance, drama, puppetry, and/or storytelling, while mentoring the classroom teacher on integrating arts-based strategies on their own.
