Teachers Explore Arts Integration at LAA+ Summer Institute

Our Louisiana A+ Schools program has nearly doubled in 2015 to include a network of 17 schools across the state. To accommodate our growing number of LAA+ educators, we divided our annual Summer Institute into two one-week sessions, with our first group attending last week at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

So what happens at the Summer Institute? The entire faculty from each school participates in an engaging week of professional development, where they acquire the skills and confidence to incorporate the arts into every subject in every classroom. The teachers attended sessions led by LAA+ Fellows, who are experts in arts integration, and explored the practical application of visual art, dance, music, and theatre in their curricula.
