This annual full-day conference highlighting best practices in arts integration reveals the transformative power of weaving the arts into a core curriculum. At this year’s conference—now in its eighth year—we clarify the essentials of arts integration and how inquiry can be used as a framework for cross-curricular projects. This day offers Vermont educators an exciting opportunity to work closely with teacher leaders and guest artist Paige Hernandez in arts integration. In her work, Baltimore-native Hernandez blends dance, monologue, and poetry over the backdrop of hip-hop and R&B classics. Educators, teaching artists, and arts leaders work together to understand the nature of inquiry in their most exciting work. We tap the processes that lead to great questions and innovative answers and illuminate how partnering across content areas strengthens the skills and motivation for problem solving. Throughout the conference, we investigate the core reasons arts integration works and why it is producing such remarkable results in student learning and activating classroom environments. Educators leave with a collection of arts-integrated lesson plans they can model for their colleagues and classrooms.
