Rocking Your Writing Program: Integration of Visual Art, Language Arts, & Science
Poldberg, Monique M.,; Trainin, Guy; Andrzejczak, Nancy
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v9 n1 2013
This paper explores the integration of art, literacy and science in a second grade classroom, showing how an integrative approach has a positive and lasting influence on student achievement in art, literacy, and science. Ways in which art, science, language arts, and cognition intersect are reviewed. Sample artifacts are presented along with their analysis to show how students learn in an integrated unit that incorporates visual art as a key component. While we recognize the importance of art as a unique domain, this research demonstrates how integration of visual art, literacy, and science content creates an effective curriculum benefiting all students.
