Arts Integration and STEAM Professional Development

Integrating Drama in the Elementary Classroom: Where Do I Start?
01-Aug-14   By: Brianne DeFrang

In any arts integration initiative, it is vital that students receive explicit instruction in the content and practices of the arts in order to make the most natural connections across content areas in the classroom. Many elementary students are fortunate to have art and music time built into their schedules, however, drama classes are more difficult to find at the elementary level.  So the question is: in order to effectively integrate drama into the curriculum, where […]

How to Add Engineering to the Arts
31-Jul-14   By: Susan Riley

As more and more schools are looking at adding the Arts to their STEM initiatives (creating STEAM), arts educators are wondering how to add engineering to the Arts.  It is fairly easy to see how math, science and technology intersect in and through the arts.  Think of the natural connections between fractions and music notes, prisms and color, or even the myriad of digital media that could be explored.  Yet, when thinking about engineering, most […]

Audience Etiquette
30-Jul-14   By: Deirdre Moore

Indulge me, if you will,  while I paint you a picture and then go into a little rant. In my pursuit of summer arts experiences I attended a very cool concert given by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra this past weekend.  The setting was perfect.  Downtown San Diego was transformed into some kind of cartoon/comic book fantasy land for Comic-Con, a convention celebrating all things comic book and sci-fi.  As  I made my way from […]

The Difference between Integration and Enhancement
29-Jul-14   By: Susan Riley

What does integration look like to you?  If your first thought leans toward images of cute projects on Pinterest, shadow boxes or having your students sing a song to help memorize the names of the states, you might be confusing arts integration with arts enhancement.  This is such a common misperception, and one that even those trained in the arts integration approach have difficulty with occasionally.  In today’s video, I’m going to share with you […]

An ARTISTIC Critique of Susan Riley’s No Permission Required
28-Jul-14   By: Typhani Harris

As I completed Susan’s latest publication No Permission Required, I found myself overjoyed with the true possibilities of STEAM and desiring to find a secondary school that models these principles, because I wanted to be a part of such a joyful experience.  Just imagine…  students wanting to learn, students enjoying learning, students who inquire, problem-solve, and collaborate.  I have never seen such a thing.  However, at the culmination of her book I found myself inquiring […]

How to Transition like an Artist
25-Jul-14   By: Susan Riley

Are you in the middle of a transition in your life?  Maybe it’s moving from one school to another, or finding out that you are moving from a classroom to a cart (eek!), or maybe it’s a personal shift in your relationships.  For the first time in my career, I am noticing more people in my life are transitioning than ever before.  Some of my friends are changing positions in their districts, some are struggling […]
