Arts Education K-12: Integrating with Reading, Writing, Math and Other Areas of the Curriculum. Arts Education Series Monograph No. 1.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
In response to new responsibilities that have come about as a result of the arts (dance, music, theater arts, and visual arts) being included in the basic curriculum in North Carolina, this monograph discusses the many approaches to interrelating different areas of the curriculum. The monograph responds to the following questions: (1) "Why Should I Integrate?"; (2) "How Do I Integrate?"; (3) "What Are Some of the Ways I Can Make Connections?"; and (4) "How Do I Make These Connections Understood?" The monograph concludes that the fundamental premise is that public education is an initial preparation for adult life and that the goal continues to be, more than ever, to provide students with an education in the arts reinforced through the recognition that the arts do not exist alone but are an integral part of life.
