Arts Integration Project in Arts Education Policy Review
"Arts Integration in Rural Minnesota: A Collaborative Arts Integration Framework" by Alison LaGarry and Byron Richard.
Here is an excerpt from the article abstract,
"In this article, we demonstrate that arts integration holds unique promise and benefits for helping rural teachers to provide more equitable arts opportunities for their students. These benefits include: professional network development in the service of both curricular development for arts integration and connecting teachers who often work in isolation; additional funding to allow for collaborative planning; and introduction to arts experiences and cultural resources for use in arts-integrated unit planning and implementation."
