Connecting: Integrating Art across the Curriculum. [Multimedia Educational Kit].
Unsworth, Jean Morman
The idea of "connecting" is explored in this multimedia educational kit art for elementary schools. The Connecting series features a teacher's manual, six teacher's guides, and three videotapes based on six primary themes. These themes are: "Rhythms and Patterns"; "Change and Transformation"; "The World Our Minds Invent"; "Maps, Paths and Grids"; "Packaging - From Soup to You"; and "What Does It Mean to Be Me?" Each theme has an individual teacher's guide. Each teacher's guide includes a list of audiovisuals with comments, numbered lessons, a lesson index for the curriculum, and a lesson index by art skills. Each theme is combined with interdisciplinary approaches, linking visual art to music, dance, social studies, mathematics, science, and/or language arts. This unique program provides a thought-provoking audiovisual presentation for each theme addressed using fine arts and everyday images as well as hundreds of art lessons in drawing, design, painting, sculpture, printmaking, fibers, and bookbinding on each of the teacher's guides. An accompanying teacher's manual is specifically designed to help set the stage for theme development for the teacher by providing extensive background information on this topic, while explaining the foundation for this comprehensive art curriculum.
