Educator Planning Guide

This form is to help educators outline and plan student arts-integrated learning experiences.  We recommend that educators copy and paste into each category from a saved document.  This is a brainstorming document and therefore it is understood that these are tentative ideas in draft form.  Sharing your thoughts with us will allow us to better support you during this program.  Thank you!
