"I really appreciate not just the techniques you taught, but the meta-cognition that you shared with us as you taught us, and the manageability of the work. It was so, so, so fun and easy. What brilliant work you do!"

This annual full-day conference highlighting best practices in Arts Integration is a powerful day of learning that helps reveal the transformative power of weaving the arts into the core curriculum.
At this year's Engaging Active Learners Conference -- now in its 8th year -- we will clarify the essentials of arts integration, and how inquiry can be used as a framework for cross-curriculur projects. This day offers Vermont educator's an exciting opportunity to work closely with teacher leaders in arts integration. Educators, teaching artists and arts leaders will work together to understand the nature of inquiry in their most exciting work. We will tap the processes that lead to great questions and innovative answering, and will illuminate how partnering across content areas can strengthen the skills and motivation for creative problem solving processes that activate all good schooling.
Throughout the Engaging Active Learners Conference, we will investigate the core reasons arts integration works, and why it is producing such remarkable results in student learning and activating classroom environments. Educators will leave with a collection of arts-integrated lesson plans they can model for their colleagues and classrooms.
