Announcing the IntegratED Arts Integration and STEAM Curriculum

It’s finally here!  After years of research, development, and testing, we’re proud to reveal IntegratED: the first-of-its-kind Arts Integration and STEAM Curriculum Supplement for Teachers.

This is truly an all-in-one solution for anyone who needs a strategic arts integration and STEAM curriculum support. It’s currently available for Grades K-5  with middle and high school is coming in the Spring of 2018.

Arts Integration and STEAM Curriculum

What is it?

IntegratED is an arts integration and STEAM curriculum supplement that is available in an online platform for teachers and administrators.  This curriculum is available as a monthly or yearly subscription to provide you with maximum flexibility and affordability.

What’s Included?

We’ve designed this curriculum supplement to be as comprehensive as possible.  When purchasing a subscription, you’ll receive access to arts integrated lessons, assessments, powerpoints, warm-ups, and professional development. 

Here’s what’s inside:

    • Lesson plan packs – released every other month.  There are 3 lessons in every pack (a total of 18 lessons per grade level).  These are delivered in January, February, March, May, September, and November.  The lessons are created to be aligned with what you’re already teaching in the curriculum during that time of the year.  So you can use these as a replacement or as an extension to your current curricular lessons.
    • Assessments – released with each lesson pack.  Each lesson comes with the assessments for the selected standards and outcomes already created.  You’ll receive a student-version and a teacher scoring rubric.  All ready to print off and handout.
    • Student Handouts – any student handouts or worksheets that are needed for the lessons have already been created and are included in each lesson pack.
    • Warm-Ups – These are strategies you can easily pull out for the beginning of class or to kick off your arts integration lesson.  We have over 40 warm-ups available.  Each lesson has a selection of warm-ups that are appropriate for the content in that lesson.
    • Powerpoints – Each lesson also comes with a powerpoint that you can download and use to present the lesson content in your classroom.
    • Professional Development – Every other month, you’ll receive a new set of PD video trainings.  Each set includes a strategy deep-dive and a training for the lessons coming up the following month.  Upon completion of viewing each PD video training, you’ll be able to immediately receive a personalized 2 hour PD certificate.

I *told* you this was comprehensive.  We want this to be your go-to resource for integrating the arts in your classroom. 

This supplement rounds out your current instruction and helps students make those critical connections.  By subscribing to this curriculum supplement, all of your planning and prep is done!
