K-8 An Artful Learning School
At Dwight Rich, we will be:
- Engaging students with a Bernstein-inspired “Artful Learning” model of arts integration aligned to Michigan grade level standards.
- Implementing Project Based Learning based on the BIE model.
Dwight Rich School of the Arts offers unique learning experiences for K-6 students utilizing technology and art labs, along with dance and music studio spaces.
What is Arts Integration?
Arts integration is a teaching approach where students construct and demonstrate their learning through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form to their subject(s) of study to enhance their understanding. This involves visual, performing, music, media, and communication arts.
What Makes Dwight Rich Special?
- Technology-based learning and arts programming.
- Art labs, technology labs, dance, music and performance studio space.
- Content and teaching resources: Project-based Learning, Aldebran Robotics
The Artful Learning Model
The four main quadrants of this model encourage and support best teaching practices while improving the manner in which both students and teachers learn.
Dwight Rich School of the Arts will:
facilitate Arts Immersion Weeks – engaging students in arts creation and learning through an Artist-in-Residence program that increases student exposure to the arts, culminating in school-based performances and family programs at the Wharton Center.
