Integrating Art with Other Subject Areas of the Curriculum: A Resource Guide.
Kula, Judith A.; And Others
This document provides examples of various teaching methods to help Arizona educators develop visual art lessons that can be integrated with other activities. The guide is divided into four sections, each with its own index tab. Section 1 features ideas for relating art to other subjects. Resource examples for ideas are provided and the importance of the idea as a beginning from which to develop specific learnings relating to the Arizona Visual Arts Essential Skills (AVAE) is emphasized. The section also includes compilations of art ideas relating to other subject areas grouped according to grade levels (K-3, 4-6, and 7-8). Section 2, labelled "Correlations," contains examples of art ideas and relates them to the AVAE. It also includes examples that could be varied to accommodate more or fewer essential skills, depending on student needs and lesson goals. Section 3 presents examples of lesson plans, formats, and examples originating from art ideas listed in section 1 and developed in section 2. Some examples of support materials used with specific lessons are included as well as an initial lesson plan framework for developing units of instruction. The final section, "References," lists books, periodicals, and additional references useful for integrating art with other subject areas. (KM)
