Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP)BTSALP Logo

BTSALP is a teaching partnership between highly qualified arts specialists and classroom teachers in 130 Utah elementary schools. The arts specialist works collaboratively with the regular classroom teacher to deliver quality, sequential, and developmental arts instruction in alignment with the state Fine Arts Core Curriculum.

This program is bringing music, visual arts, dance, and theatre back into the classroom. And, as the art form integrates with language arts, math, social studies, and science, it is helping to reinforce the classroom core. Arts integration provides students with a deeper level of understanding in grade-level core content, and enriches the learning experience for both students and teachers.

Sorenson Legacy Awards (SLA)

The Sorenson Legacy Awards for Excellence in Arts Education recognizes excellence in arts education in Utah's public schools. Children and teenage students need a well-rounded education that addresses the whole child. The study of drama, dance, music, and the visual arts helps students explore realities, relationships, and ideas that cannot be expressed simply in words or numbers.

The arts integrate social-emotional learning through making cultural connections. Research supports the claim that learning in the arts increases learning in other academic areas. In the global economy, creativity is essential. Study of the arts provides a venue for creativity to flourish. As educators have felt pressure to give more and more attention to literacy and numeracy, the arts have been pushed to the background.

Beverley Taylor Sorenson worked tirelessly to promote the arts as an avenue for students to develop voice, sustain engagement in school, and evoke reflection and response.Through the Sorenson Legacy Foundation and the Utah State Board of Education, the Sorenson Legacy Awards for Excellence in Arts Education will recognize the essential nature of education in the arts for Utah's students, distinguish those educators who embrace the arts with excellence in their practice, and ensure that Beverley's legacy will continue on.

Learning Goals in the Fine Arts

Study in the arts is an essential means, not an end, to acquiring thinking skills, creativity, the ability to change, and the facility to teach oneself. In a safe, nurturing environment, the arts enable students to express their feelings, communicate thoughts, explore their creativity, solve problems, communicate ideas, develop a sense of community, and appreciate themselves as participants in history, tradition, and culture. Learning in art, dance, drama, film, and music advances and strengthens motor skills. Self-discipline, perception, sensitivity, and promotes considerate behavior and the ability to work well with others. Fine Arts experiences contribute to the developmental process of understanding one another, and to naturally motivating students in all their learning.
