Upon entering my classroom this summer, students would ask immediately: What are we creating today? My answers varied from comic strips to rhythmic skip counting to 3D self-portraits and morning virtue bracelets. Meanwhile, the sound of students discussing their aspirations and visualizing how to create something tangible has made the Summer Arts for Learning Academy — where I taught this summer — a unique space for learning.
Arts-integrated learning is good for students and their teachers
