PARTNERSHIP LETS TEACHERS INTEGRATE ART INTO CURRICULUM
Teachers at four local schools will be integrating art into their curriculum this fall thanks to a partnership with the North Carolina Museum of Art. Kannapolis Intermediate, Kannapolis Middle, Knox Middle and Southeast Middle will be participating in the museum’s Art of Collaboration program at the start of next academic year. The program provides teachers with training to incorporate art into their instruction of math, science, English, social studies and visual arts. Jill Taylor, the museum’s coordinator of school partnerships, said about six teachers from each school will attend a three-day immersion workshop held this summer.
