Arts integration is an approach to teaching and learning through which content standards are taught and assessed equitably in and through the arts. This research-based method has been used in classrooms for more than 30 years as a proven way to increase student success.
STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
Using STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
