Everything’s Included.

We believe in providing teachers and schools with everything they need to build sustainable, scalable arts integration and STEAM efforts. So each license includes everything you see below – all connected and in one place.

Simple, like it should be.

Accredited, On-Demand Online Courses

Includes: 8 Courses and 2 Microcredentials (300 PD hours/25 CEUs)

The Accelerator’s PD Library includes 8 online courses and 2 microcredentials. Fully accredited with both PD hours and CEUs available. All trainings are on-demand, so you can begin anytime and go as quickly or as slowly as you need.

Use these courses and microcredentials for salary advancement and to meet your PD requirements. Your PD library empowers you to confidently deliver creative experiences in the classroom.

K-12 Curriculum Supplement

Includes: 300+ Standards-Aligned Lessons. Plus Scope and Sequence and Differentiation Tools.

With standards-aligned lessons, assessments, and student resources, you’ll have engaging learning experiences at your fingertips – no planning time required. Meet academic requirements while helping students build essential critical thinking skills that will last a lifetime. Each grade level collection includes scope and sequences, differentiated support, vocabulary and materials lists, and literacy connections.

Premium Resource Library

Includes: 250+ Teacher-Created Resources. Aligned to Lessons and Workshops.

The Accelerator’s Premium Resource Vault is a treasure trove of 250+ templates, forms, anchor charts, posters, and tools to use in any type of classroom. Better than anything you’ll find scrolling on TpT or Pinterest, these resources will save you hours in prep time each year.

⚡Plus our new AI tool: The Creativity Coach

The AI Creativity Coach is The Accelerator’s proprietary artificial intelligence support tool exclusively for members.

You can use this tool to help you craft any arts integration or STEAM lesson, activity, or assessment you could imagine.  

Trained on our arts integration continuum, toolkits, and all state standards, it’s like having a personal arts integration coach in your back pocket.

PD/TV Streaming Service

PD/TV: The Professional Development Streaming Service

It’s like Netflix™ for Teacher PD.

All members have access to a full on-demand streaming service of technique and strategy workshop videos, uplifting talks, and complimentary tickets to all of our online conferences.

This service brings you the very best trainers and artists to showcase techniques, provides inspirational keynotes from top entertainers and educators, and shares on-going, connected PD all year long – without any extra fees, travel expenses, or scheduling hassles.

Feel confident providing arts connections in class. These teacher-created PD experiences will spark your joy and build your creative skills.

If You’re Serious About Arts Integration and STEAM…

…then you need the teacher created resources in this all-in-one platform. Why? Because most arts integration and STEAM efforts don’t last more than 1-3 years on their own.

Here’s what typically happens:

  • Teachers or schools start an arts integration or STEAM effort with a pilot group or some grant money…
  • The school brings in trainers for 1-2 days of professional development (with little to no follow up)…
  • You might invest in a few teaching artists to come in for a week (these are great, but then school goes back to “normal”)…
  • You’ve got some good arts integration strategies, but students aren’t showing measurable academic gains and you can’t understand why…
  • With little support and follow-through, arts integration or STEAM just isn’t taking hold with your school…

Sound familiar?

This is SO common and it’s frustrating because arts integration and STEAM can be an extremely effective way to connect creative skills and curriculum requirements. When used strategically, students can see up to 20% improvement in academic measurements and 5% or more increased attendance.

This is why we’ve created the Accelerator. We’ve combined standards-aligned curriculum, accredited professional development, and premium teacher resources to provide you with scalable and sustainable support for your arts integration and STEAM efforts.
