About this Grantee
By integrating art across disciplines, Ms. Roach, Ms. Hameed, and Ms. Mackey develop thematic lessons to enhance their students’ critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Students learn how art affects their lives, from the clothing they wear to the houses in which they live. In one unit, students research Native American art, form their own tribe, and create artifacts that symbolize their respective tribes. At the completion of this unit, students interact with local Native Americans.
