Arts Integration is an approach to teaching and learning in which the arts are used as the methodology and process for learning. Anne Arundel County Public Schools began its Arts Integration (AI) journey with the SAILSS project at Wiley H. Bates Middle School in 2009: Supporting Arts Integrated Learning for Student Success. Since the success of AI at Bates, six elementary schools and another middle school have been designated as Arts Integration schools, AI strategies have been incorporated into county curriculum, scores of teachers have been trained and hundreds of exemplar lessons written.
