Peninsula Performs! is a new arts education program that connects arts providers directly to students and educators in the Port Angeles School District (PASD). This curriculum-based arts integration approach uses music, dance, theater, and visual arts to find new entry points into learning and aligns with both Common Core State Standards and National Core Arts Standards. Peninsula Performs! is expected to launch this fall for the 2022-2023 academic year.
WHAT IS ARTS INTEGRATION?
The Kennedy Center defines Arts Integration as an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.
Working in partnership with Port Angeles School District, Peninsula Performs! infuses arts and cultural experiences into teaching and learning in ways that enrich the student experience and improve outcomes across the curriculum.
If you are an educator in the Port Angeles School District who is interested in bringing Peninsula Performs! your classroom for the 2022-2023 academic year, please email Kayla Oakes at email@example.com.
