Cross-curricular projects are exciting for both students and teachers: they engage students on unexpected levels by mixing what they already know with new learning, and they allow teachers to engage in direct learning from colleagues with different skill sets. Schools and communities often feel reconnected through the process of collaborating.

In this session, presenters will be share a successful framework for creating collaborative, cross-curricular projects based on a cross-curricular project experience that involved community resources, an artist, an art teacher, and an English teacher. Presenters will show how creativity, trust, and risk-taking were the core of their cross-curricular project, and will facilitate brainstorming and discussion among participants to help them initiate their own cross-curricular project. Through art and writing examples, activities, and discussion, participants will emerge with ideas and energy for building cross-curricular connections and projects that extend beyond school walls.
