Arts Integration can benefit you and your students!

Don't Be Afraid!
Give it a try…even in a small way.

MAAE is committed to helping Missouri teachers use Arts Integration as a strategy to improve student achievement and behavior. Helping educators learn best practices for effective implementation honors the expertise of all teachers involved and addresses both arts and non-arts standards to yield great benefits for all.

Do not fear that you will lose something by working collaboratively with others. Arts Integration can actually help meet your classroom goals, enriching your work in the arts with your students. Collaborative planning for arts integrated learning experiences honors the arts as a partner and reflecting standards in the arts and non-arts subject area(s) and providing opportunities for assessment of skill and understanding in both.

Our partners in Kansas City, St. Louis and Springfield offer professional development training and follow-up which to teacher interested in Arts Integration.

MAAE is here to help as well!
