Arts Integration, Science and Social Science Education
Dr. Brouillette serves as Principal Investigator for two large collaborative projects with the San Diego Unified School District, each serving 15 elementary schools. In grades 3 to 5, the focus is on using arts integration to help students from low SES neighborhoods better understand the language of science. In kindergarten through second grade, the focus is on using drama and dance to build literacy skills and enhance social-emotional development. In both projects the achievement of students of participating teachers is compared to that of a matched control group.
In addition, Dr. Brouillette heads up a consortium of five universities that has been awarded a $250,000 grant from the National Geographic Education Foundation to conduct outreach projects that bring varied forms of ethnic, regional, and historical music into K-12 classrooms to enhance the United States history curriculum, with a focus on cultural geography.
