Arts Integration Session at CCSA

The CA Charter School Association conference concluded this week and it was an informative experience. I led the session on arts integration and wanted to leave some resources here for those who were unable to attend or wanted to watch the videos I played in the session! I started the session with the powerful connection of my journey as a stutterer and its connection to the arts. Watch the video here!

 

The session was packed with teachers eager for more arts!

 

Arts Within The Common Core Handout

I introduced the 'One School One Book Program' our librarian Kelly Spector launched at our school and shared how we integrated the arts and community service projects into our chosen books. Visit campreadsmore to see our other literally adventures!
