A study guide created by Teachers College to accompany the first year of episodes from the HBO television series Masterclass has been distributed by the Young Arts Foundation free of charge to some 6,500 middle and high schools in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami. Masterclass chronicles the experiences of teens chosen by Young Arts to work with great artists such as tenor Placido Domingo, choreographer Bill T. Jones, architect Frank Gehry, actress Liv Ullman and playwright Edward Albee.

Creation of the study guide was led by Hal Abeles, TC Professor of Music and Music Education, and former TC Professor Margaret Crocco, now Dean of the University of Iowa College of Education. The guide seeks to build 21st-century critical thinking skills.  previous page
