Why an Integrated Curriculum?

Research shows that when students use arts integration and STEAM, there are incredible benefits.  Here’s just a few:

    • Increased achievement. Schools see an average increase of 10-15% student achievement across all populations.  For underserved populations, there is an average increase of 20% or more.
    • Students who use our supplementary curriculum have shown an average increase of 30% or more in proficiency on targeted E/LA, Math and Science concepts.
    • Increased engagement.  Schools using arts integration and STEAM curriculum report high levels of student engagement and excitement for the learning process. 
    • Increased attendance. Because students are so engaged during the integrated lessons, they don’t want to miss school!

A Cohesive Curriculum Approach.

This supplement is meant to work with your current curriculum sequences.  Every other month, you’re provided with 3 lessons connected to E/LA, Math, Social Studies and Science Standards.

Each unit is based in a specific arts period.  And in the “off” months, you’re provided with video-based PD to help you get ready for the upcoming unit.  These PD videos even come with a certificate for 2 hours. So you’re always supported, each step of the way.

FAQs

We want you to feel totally comfortable ordering this new curriculum. So if you still have some questions, we’ll be happy to answer them!

What’s the difference between this and your free lessons/units?

This curriculum supplement is much more comprehensive and cohesive.  This truly contains everything you’re going to need for a stellar arts integration lesson/unit: aligned standards, lesson plans, student resources, assessments – it’s all included in each lesson pack.  This curriculum supplement is also designed to work into your current curriculum.  We align our lessons with what you’re already doing in the curriculum.  There’s no “fitting it in” – it naturally works into your current guides.

This curriculum also builds upon each month.  It’s very strategic and meant to provide your students with a sequential experience that makes sense in the classroom.

Our free lessons and units are limited to just the lesson or you have to do a bunch of work to make them fit into what you’re already doing.  This supplement does all of that for you!

Can I use a purchase order?

Yes! You may use a purchase order IF you are a school purchasing year-long access for at least one teacher.  Please contact us here to use a PO.

Is this for one-grade level or does my purchase include all grades K-5?

Your purchase will include curriculum for your grade level.  Pricing is per teacher.  If you are a classroom teacher, you should select the Classroom Teacher option. This includes a new 3-lesson pack every other month. If you are an arts teacher who teaches grades K-5, you should purchase the K-5 option that includes all grades. You will receive (6) new 3-lesson packs – totaling 18 lessons – every other month.  On the off months, you’ll receive 2 new PD video trainings to support your work.

Is this a one-time payment or a subscription?

This curriculum is provided as a yearly subscription which will renew each year unless you decide to cancel.  New lesson packs will continue to be added every other month, so you’ll always have something fresh for your classroom.

Cancelation is easy.  If you feel this isn’t right for you, you’ll be able to cancel at anytime inside your members area at the click of a button.
