The 5 C’s
of Arts Infused
Inquiry Based Learning

Community
How can I give students ownership of their learning experience? Is their learning experience engaging, while also involving the school community and allowing them to take action and feel safe while taking risks in their learning?
Collaboration
Are my students working in flexible groups? How are teachers collaborating? How do students build upon each others’ ideas? Are students critiquing their peers? Does the learning experience extend beyond the classroom? How are they demonstrating teamwork?
Creativity
How does your project inspire students to generate new ideas? How does it incorporate various learning styles? How does it integrate art with other curricula as a way of learning and/or expressing?
Critical Thinking
Are students making judgments, evaluating, questioning, justifying, synthesizing? Is there a real world application?
Communication
What methods are students using to tell others what they know? How are they communicating with others and sharing their learning? Have I provided students opportunities to share their learning through the arts?
