Since we started our Summer Institutes 3 years ago, we’ve been inspired by the diversity and depth of the many VTS-integrated projects, programs, and
approaches presented at the share-out sessions.

So this year, we're trying something new.
In a few minutes you can see how VTS fits into the Common Core Standards puzzle, and it’s a very good fit indeed.

It might be a perfect companion to the book, Visual Thinking Strategies: Using Art to Deepen Learning Across Disciplines.
Be sure to check it out!
