Artists in Schools

COOL teaching artists collaborate with classroom teachers to introduce strategies inherent in the arts to include every student and support their learning in the arts as well as in other academic subjects.  We work with each school to identify the grade levels, classrooms, and curriculum areas where programs are likely to have the most transformative impact in their schools' plans to support inclusion.  COOL teaching artists and classroom teachers co-create and co-teach instructional units, using Common Core Standards for both arts and academic content.
