Three Arts Nights, featuring performances by local teachers and young students, were held recently by Arts Integration Menomonie to complete the inaugural year of the Co-Teaching In and Through the Arts program.
The Arts Nights, held at the Mabel Tainter Center of the Arts, showcased examples of arts-integrated lessons taught this spring as part of the Menomonie school district’s curriculum.
CITA pairs early childhood educators with professional teaching artists to deliver standards-based curricula through art-infused lessons. CITA included birth through third-grade students in five Menomonie schools, 15 teachers and eight UW-Stout education majors.
