Rochester, New York
Principal Donna Marie Cozine

Ridgeway Elementary School
Hamilton, Ohio
Principal Kathy Wagonfield

This school's creative leadership team
infused the arts into every aspect of the
curriculum and school culture. The
team built units of study and thematic
curriculum maps that explicitly show
connections between the arts and
every content area that is taught-
emphasizing common art-based
language and the creative processes.

Environment of Inquiry
& Art Integration
Bloomfield Elementary School

Principal Jean Pillsbury

The creative leadership team
developed a three-year plan for
building teachers' creative capacity,
coaching colleagues and supporting
classroom teachers as they embraced
art integration schoolwide.

Mindfulness and Literacy
Taught Through Art

When the Canadian Ministry of
Education asked this school to increase
literacy skills in its high-risk community
of English-language learners, the
school chose art integration as the
teaching strategy. It helped children
become mindful while creating and
presenting artwork, resulting in
deepened communication skills.

Project-Based Learning
Merges Art and
Common Core

Vansville Elementary School
Beltsville, Maryland
Principal Tom Smith

Coronita Elementary School
Corona, California
Principal Kevin Kazala

Building teachers' creative capacity
is this school's priority. It uses art
integration as the teaching strategy
to cultivate students' self-expression,
personal identity, and cultural
understanding.

The creative leadership team engaged
families and teachers in learning how
art, creative processes, and Common
Core come together through lively
project-based learning experiences.
Children can borrow "creative kits"
from the school's lending library to
create projects at home.

Blair Dual Language School
Waukesha, Wisconsin
Principal Aida Cruz-Farin

Growing students' and teachers'
commitment and capacity to persevere
and solve problems is a mindset
this school embraces. Teachers
received professional development
on design thinking-urging them to
experiment, innovate, collaborate,
evaluate, and learn from mistakes.

Savoy Elementary School
Washington, D.C.
Principal Donyale Butler

As one of the President's Committee
on the Arts and Humanities' first
eight Turnaround Arts schools, Savoy
has veteran teachers who embraced
art integration as a teaching strategy
to build literacy and math skills and
student engagement. Now they are
sharing insights with other district
educators.

Teachers Training Teachers

Quest for Quality
Questioning
Arnold Elementary School
Arnold, Maryland
Principal Shauna Kauffman

Already involved in art integration,
this school increased the rigor in
its art-rich classrooms with deeper
thinking and more complex creations.
Focusing on quality questioning, the
principal's walk-throughs engaged
students in art-integration inquiry.

Principal Special Supplement ■ September/October 2016

Savoy Elementary School
Washington, D.C.

Technology that Facilitates
Creativity and Collaboration
Luther Conant Elementary School
Acton, Massachusetts
Principal Damian Sugre

While technology has permeated
life, educators are searching for ways
to use it to stimulate creativity and
collaborative projects. This school's
creative leadership team provided
professional development and team
teaching and coaching for more
effective integration of art and ed tech.

Tinker Town-Where
Curiosity Drives Curricula
Jackson Primary School
Williamsport, Pennsylvania
Principal Kirk Felix

What if teachers considered their
most important role to be "learner"?
What if they thought more about
good questions than right answers?
This school's creative leadership team
served as a catalyst for an authentic
model of learning, giving students a
voice and choice, and letting curiosity
drive the curricula.
