Curriculum-Planning Sessions

  • With your arts specialists, brainstorm ways the arts can make teaching more effective at your school; for example, by overcoming language and other barriers to learning or by reaching students with various learning styles or special needs.
  • Identify opportunities for bringing arts specialists into classrooms regularly.
  • Invite specialists to help you plan specific ways they could integrate with your curriculum and set goals for making this happen. Include periodic skills-sharing sessions with arts specialists and classroom teachers in your school schedule.
