The Equitable Access to Arts Learning for Students (EquAALS) project rigorously utilizes research-based art integration strategies to enhance the achievement and cognitive growth in English Language Arts of Students with Disabilities (SWD) through a free, 3-hour PD module for Transitional Kindergarten through 8th Grade teachers.
This session equips “teacher and of teachers” and other academic leaders to lead the EquAALS module in their own academic settings.
