Teachers who participate in BYU's Arts Leadership Academy are subsequently invited to participate in the BYU Arts Bridge program. In Arts Bridge, each participating teacher is paired with an arts scholar (a BYU student from one of the arts education programs), who works with the teacher to implement instruction in one art form and to integrate and infuse that art form into the classroom.
Each BYU arts scholar kept a blog that cataloged their activities and lesson plans with their classes. Here are some of our favorite ones to check out:
Lisa Moncur–Drama Scholar http://lisamoncurartsbridge1.blogspot.com/

If you are a BYU student that studies in the arts, we encourage you to apply to become an arts scholar in the BYU Arts Bridge Program! To download the application, or if you would like to know more about this program, please visit our website at: http://education14a.byu.edu/arts/arts_bridge
