The Power of Arts Integrated Learning
March 4, 2017
Participants engaged in hands-on visual art, theatre and music making experiences that can be applied to literacy learning in their classrooms. Throughout the day, they learned from examples of arts-integrated learning from Chicago public schools, engaged with current exhibitions in the Vero Beach Museum of art, and created their own music and writing from a variety of sources, gaining access to the arts as powerful tools for teaching and learning. Participants saw how to embrace both English Language Arts Standards and Arts and how to use art strategies to build interdisciplinary, robust lessons for their students.
