Arts Integration Resources for Early Learning Educators, Teaching Artists,
We must teach the way students learn, rather than expecting them to learn the way we teach.
Want to Make Your Own Video Tutorial?
Early learning communities face challenges this year that we never imagined. Many classrooms are now online, students practice physical distancing, and families are supporting learning from their homes. Many educators are making videos to support learning for the first time. Need some home production tips and tricks?

Arts to Support Well-Being
COMING SOON: Arts to Support Math
An approach to teaching where traditional school content (such as math, science, literacy) is taught together with arts content (such as dance, media arts, theatre). This approach engages learners in a deeper understanding of shared concepts (such as pattern or volume) and supports student success in both arts and core content learning standards.
A way of teaching that invites student knowledge, culture, language, and experiences into the classroom. CRT can be used in arts education to support the critical and creative thinking skills students need to succeed in school (21st century skills) and in life.
A child between the ages of 3 to 8 is considered an early learner.
