While the arts have suffered in many schools, three educators share how they supplanted routine, rote learning with a creative project, the multigenre project, that calls upon higher level thinking yet still addresses standards, engages students, and captures the objectives that other assignments may, while also capturing the creative spirit.

The multigenre project has been utilized in K-16 education, and has changed opinions about writing.
