JAMM Selected as a Collaborating Site for National Evaluation Project
Map of El Sistema Programs in the United States
WolfBrown Associates and Longy School of Music of Bard College have selected JAMM as a Collaborating Site for the National Collaborative Evaluation of Sistema-inspired Music Education. This project will collaborate with experienced educators to develop 1) an understanding of the conditions under which Sistema-inspired programs have positive effects, 2) the assets that Sistema programs identify and build in children and families, and 3) the effects these assets have on key outcomes usch as achievement and pro-social behaviors. As a collaborating site, JAMM will have access to the resources, as well as guidance in using evaluation strategies.
