HOT Schools Orientation participants will experience HOT Schools theory in action as they observe and are guided through the ways in which Lyman structures instruction through the HOT School core components of strong arts, art integration and democratic practice; providing each student with the tools to achieve high academic standards and become a creative, successful, life-long learner. John Lyman faculty will be joined by faculty from other HOT Schools to provide grade level discussions. HOT Schools shares the same broad goals identified in the Common Core State Standards readiness anchor standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language, and HOT practices affect work habits (imagination, investigation, construction and reflection) identified by National Core Arts Standards.
