Objective and outcomes:

  • To increase awareness and appreciation for visual arts.

Evaluation and Evidence of Learning and Application:

Each classroom teacher will then have about 7 sessions with Ali to develop and implement art integration ideas relevant to their learners and content through a coaching and Gradual Release Model (I do, We do, You do) with Ali. Teachers will reflect upon each mini lesson and work with Ali through a to make revisions and adjustments. By spring, each teacher will have planned, implemented, and reflected on a complete lesson they had designed.
