Teaching Strategies from the Arizona Comprehensive/Integrated Arts Program.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
These 28 interdisciplinary learning activities for elementary children are designed to provide perceptual, cognitive, and personal-social growth experiences. Subject areas included are art, dance, language arts, math, music, science, career education, health, physical education, reading, and social studies. The teaching strategies, which provide teachers with several means of measuring student growth, are designed to demonstrate the interrelatedness of all learning. Each sheet is coded according to its relevance to several areas of the curriculum and to the skills emphasized. The purpose, procedure, and required materials are listed. For example, an activity which encompasses the fields of music and science consists of identifying musical instruments by their sounds or of duplicating sound patterns. The purpose of the activity is to develop auditory discrimination, memory, imagery, and sequencing skills. Other activities include listening to and recreating the motion of popping corn, body language exercises, creative writing from photographs, story improvisation, and the recognition of feelings and moods through movement.
