Curriculum, Community, and the Arts.
Degelman, Charles, Ed.
Service-Learning Network, v7 n2 Fall 1998
This issue of "Service-Learning Network" looks at how the arts skills strengthen interdisciplinary learning and reach beyond the classroom to form meaningful connections between students, the curriculum, and service-learning communities. Articles include "Art and Service Learning: Connection within a Community of Shared Experience" (Sarah Graham Petto), which discusses how students can integrate their curriculum with a primary function of art and apply both to community projects; and "Beyond School Walls" (Ushma Shah), which offers several examples of how the arts can help link service projects to classroom study. The Profiles section describes two effective service-learning projects that integrate curriculum, community, and the arts, while the Technology section features a list of arts-education resources on the Internet. Also includes two art and ecology lessons from ArtsEdNet. (BT)
