This report summarizes findings on the relationship between arts-integrated instruction
and student achievement in the Arts for Academic Achievement (AAA) program. It is
part of a series of reports based on a longitudinal study of AAA by a team of researchers
at the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI).
The purpose of the four-year Arts for Academic Achievement: The Annenberg
Challenge in Minneapolis project (AAA) was to transform teaching and learning
through partnerships between schools, artists, and arts organizations. The theory of
action underlying the initiative was that when teachers and artists collaboratively
develop instruction that integrates arts and non-arts disciplines, instruction in non-arts
disciplines becomes more effective and student achievement increases.
