A Model for Integrating Non-Traditional Skills and Instruction from Literature and Art into Science Classroom Activities.
Jervis, Charles K.
This paper presents a model which incorporates traditional art skills into the high school science classroom. Science, art and English teachers are provided with a scheme by which science works can be incorporated into art or English classes and literary and art analysis skills can be applied in the science class. Using this model, students read, analyze, critique, and investigate the presentation of scientific information in literary works, and they use artistic skills to present their observations or interpretations of scientific phenomena. Based on these works, scientific information is organized into a variety of formats, both the traditional science report and non-traditional creative arts products such as essays, videos, poems, photographs, and drawings. A lesson plan based on the Robert Frost poem "Design" is provided which demonstrates essential aspects of the analysis and assignment scheme, along with examples of student products. Four appendices consist of: Virginia Department of Education Standards of Learning Program Goals and Objectives; extended questions for the "Design" lesson plan; a sample lesson plan utilizing a "Walden" selection; and (4) a reading list and samples of student art products.
