The Spiral

Have you heard about Project AIM?

It's fantastic.

From the online brochure:

"A national leader in the field of arts integration, the Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP) at Columbia College Chicago recently published the book AIMprint: New Relationships in the Arts and Learning. This dynamic teaching tool tells the story of Project AIM, CCAP’s arts integration mentorship program. Through a compilation of eloquent essays, first person testimony and curriculum samples,AIMprint provides rich perspective on the field of arts integration. Inside, readers will find lesson plans and teaching tools that readily translate into the classroom, helping them create powerful arts integrated curriculum.

Central to the work is Project AIM’s Arts Integration Learning Spiral.The Learning Spiral is a working model of how the arts engage students along different points of instruction. It provides an invaluable foundation for the collection of field-tested examples included in AIMprint. "

The Arts Integration Learning Spiral is groovy.
