My expertise in curriculum design and arts integration
can improve your teachers' effectiveness
and student achievement.
I teach educators how to improve instruction in their content area by integrating it with a creative arts curriculum.
Arts Integration, as defined by The Kennedy Center, is an approach to teaching in in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.
Arts integration increases rigor by fostering a culture for creative application and analysis, innovation, divergent and convergent thinking, collaboration, and communication.
