Arts teachers communicate with students, and students communicate with each other in respectful ways that encourage communication of original ideas through the arts. In this program, participants meet a dance teacher whose students draw choreographic inspiration from poetry and sign language. A visual arts teacher gives her commercial art class an assignment that enables them to communicate a concrete idea through several visual media. A theatre teacher encourages student interaction around the dramatization and staging of fables. Finally, a vocal music teacher asks her students to use “descriptive praise” to critique the performance of a fellow singer.

Arts teachers develop relationships with community members and organizations by bringing artists into the classroom, taking students beyond school walls, and asking students to draw inspiration from the voices of their community. In this program, participants see a guest choreographer who challenges students with her working style and expectations. A visiting theatre artist helps playwriting students develop monologues based on interviews with people in the neighborhood. A visual arts teacher and her students work with community members to create a sculpture garden in an empty courtyard at their school, drawing inspiration from a nearby sculpture park.

Arts teachers use formal and informal strategies to assess their students’ progress, and to modify their own teaching practice. In this program, participants meet a vocal music teacher who splits his choir into groups that give each other feedback; he also has students tape record themselves during rehearsal, so he can judge their individual progress. A dance teacher critiques original choreography by a student and asks the student's peers to participate in the process; this feedback helps the choreographer deepen the impact of her work. Next, theatre teachers give an in-depth critique to a student, and then ask him for feedback on their teaching. Finally, a visual arts teacher helps students develop their observation and analysis skills throughout their high school careers, so that they learn to be their own best critics.

Two visual art specialist teachers use contrasting interpretations of the human face to explore inquiry–based instruction and various techniques in visual art. Pamela Mancini, the visual art teacher at Helen Street School in Hamden, Connecticut, uses portraits to foster inquiry and self-expression with a class of fifth-graders.
