Arts Integrated Units: Kinder - 5th Grade
Welcome to the Glendale CREATES units. Thank you for taking advantage of these rigorous units that combine an arts discipline of Theater, Visual Arts, Music or Dance with an English Language Arts or Math Common Core Standards Based Unit of Study. These units were funded by an Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination Grant from the US Education Department: Office of Innovation and Improvement.
Glendale CREATES (Common Core aligned Relevant and Enriching Arts integrated instruction using Technology to Ensure that every student Succeeds) consisted of dedicated teams of teachers at Glendale Unified School District’s Mark Keppel Visual and Performing Arts Magnet collaborating with consultants from RISE Educational Services and The Music Center of Los Angeles County to create 36 arts integrated units.
These integrated units, funded by a grant from the US Department of Education Office of Innovation and Improvement, can be taught concurrently, or separately (i.e. a teacher can choose to teach just the arts discipline unit, or just the math or ELA unit).
