    • A Customized Arts-Integrated Residency: Learn the Standards through dance, spoken word, writing and drama

      Description:

      Design your own residency. Match your curriculum with the artists’ strengths as an artist and teacher. Begin by selecting the common core standards you want to integrate with arts strategies. Create a residency that is the right balance for your classroom of storytelling, multimedia, writing, drama, and movement. Allow the creative process to guide your students’ ability to synthesize and evaluate their understanding of new areas of learning. Through a series of arts-integrated exercises, students understand how to solve a math problem, understand a scientific process, film a weather report, create a commercial, perform a modernized folktale, write a personal story, historical tale, piece of fiction, or nonfiction. The end result of the residency is a piece of writing and/or performance ready to be shared with their community.
