JANUARY 25th 2016
ARTICLE BY: THE LEADER TELEGRAM
A new program in the Menomonie school district that brings the arts into classrooms is providing a new type of student-teaching experience for several UW-Stout education majors. Four students are working with Menomonie public schools teachers and also with teaching artists as part of the Arts Integration Menomonie (AIM) program titled CITA — Co-teaching In and Through the Arts.
The teaching artists are in classrooms with regular teachers to provide an arts-based curriculum, infusing lessons throughout the day with a designated art form. The UW-Stout students are working with the teachers and the artists.
