Arts + Classroom Curriculum: Stitching It Together
Julia Morgan Center for the Arts

It is amazing how one work of art can be used to inspire, inform and infuse the K-12 curriculum. See how 3 classroom teachers from kindergarten, sixth, and eleventh grades create an exciting, integrated curriculum based on a 50-minute music/dance performance. Using the Lincoln Center Institute (LCI) model of aesthetic education, classroom teachers and teaching artists collaborate to design lesson plans around the same work of art, with each unit of study having a unique, developmentally appropriate line of inquiry.

It comes with assessment strategies!
