The Program Model
What Did We Do?
The Partnership for Arts Integration Research (PAIR) project worked directly with six elementary schools, grouped into three pairs. Each pair of schools shared one set of two teaching artists, who partnered with 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classroom teachers to focus on integrating the arts into one major academic content area.
Student artifacts were collected by teachers and artists through the life of the project, and reflected on by teachers through labeling each artifact. Students and teachers were interviewed and surveyed.
