During the 2009‐2010 school year, Project AIM, a program of the Center for Community Arts
Partnerships at Columbia College Chicago, worked with over nine hundred fifth through eighth
grade students in five schools. Project AIM teaching artists
collaborated with classroom teachers in these schools to develop residencies that offered students
instruction in arts, literacy and/or math. Each residency included thirteen sessions in which the
artist provided instruction in the classroom in collaboration with the classroom teacher.
In addition to the residencies, Project AIM facilitated the development of learning communities
within each school.
also convened the artists each month for professional development sessions focused on topics such
as the emotional and social development of middle grades students and integrating instruction in
math and visual art.
