+SLANT ModelProgram Situation:There is a shortage of rich arts and science programs for students that include creativity, real-world problem solving, and discussions. Insufficient numbers of students are graduating with 21st century skill sets. Teachers needs strategies, time, and resources to integrate art and science across the curriculum.INPUTSOUTPUTSOUTCOMESTeachers collaborate in using resources from workshops to develop curricula or specific projects.LONGMEDIUMPARTICIPATIONSACTIVITIESPROGRAM STAFFCOMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND PARTNERSSCHOOL DISTRICT TEACHERS AND STUDENTSMATERIALS AND SUPPLIESSchool district students, teachers, and leadershipProfessional development and collaboration timeCommunity partners and organizationsDocumentation and assessmentInstitution of higher educationTeacher and student use of program materialsModel developmentTeacher and student learning is documented.Teachers increase their content knowledge of art and science integration and interdisciplinary teaching.SHORTClassroom time for project based learning and art and science increases.Website, articles, research, and presentations developed to share resources internally and externally.A model framework is developed.A majority of SLANT teachers continue in program and use trans-disciplinary teaching strategies.SLANT teacher leaders use trans-disciplinary methods and mentor peers.Student equity and achievement improves.Teacher retention improves.A platform has been established for SLANT longevity.A national model is developed and distributed.ASSUMPTION: Teachers are given continued support to collaborate and participate in professional development.EXTERNAL FACTORS: State and district budgets, staffing, prioritization, funding for research and evaluation, teacher retention, and equity issues.45 Creative Strategies from Dr. Julia MarshallDepictionProjectionReformattingMimicryMetaphor

I have realized that I can't expect my students to be creative unless I am involved in the creative process myself. The SLANT training has given me this opportunity, which is truly a gift. I valued time to research, build, consider, evaluate, be creative, and collaborate.I appreciate the out of box experiences that enable me to think of teaching in different ways.I now see clearly that art and science are both documents of life.
