Learn Arts Integration from the professionals who pioneered the nationally recognized OMA Program.
Opening Minds through the Arts (OMA) Foundation presents the 2010 OMA Gold Arts Integration Academy (AIA). Four intensive days of learning and practice for classroom teachers, teaching artists, arts specialists, administrators, and school teams.

----- ARTS INTEGRATION ACADEMY -----
Gain an understanding of arts integration and the collaboration that makes it work...and each day, practice the model that transforms student achievement.
For each instructional role in integration the AIA provides you will:
1. Explore the structure of arts integration.
2. Define roles, responsibilities, and creative opportunities for the roles mentioned above.
3. Understand the processes, tools, and management system to build a truly integrated curriculum that transforms your school and community.
4. Design and practice a team-driven integrated project.

*NEH Summer Programs for School and College Educators*

Each year, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports tuition-free summer programs for school and college educators. Participants receive stipends to help cover travel and living expenses.

These one-to-five week study opportunities focus on important topics, texts, and questions in the humanities; enhance the intellectual vitality and professional development of participants; build a community of inquiry and provide models of excellent scholarship and teaching; and promote connections between teaching and research in the humanities.

NEH summer programs are held across the United States and abroad.

For a list of NEH Seminars and Institutes and NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops for 2014, please visit http://www.neh.gov/divisions/education/summer-programs. The application deadline is March 4, 2014.
