Arts Integration is 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.


  • Arts Integration Ambassadors

    In 2017 NEISD established small cohorts consisting of teachers through the district. Currently we have twenty outstanding members. The Ambassadors are a cohort of members from elementary to high school with the understanding, drive and experience to integrate the arts within the content. The goal of the cohort is to revitalize our program to dig deeper, activate the learner, and give all students opportunities to showcase their learning in a creative process.
