Re-Placing the Arts in Elementary School Curricula: An Interdisciplinary, Collaborative Action Research Project
Trent, Allen; Riley, Jorge-Ayn
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v6 n2 p14-28 Fall 2009
This article describes a collaborative action research project aimed at deliberately "re-placing" art in the elementary curriculum through targeted planning, implementation, and assessment of an art integrated unit in an urban 4th grade classroom. Findings and implications should be relevant to elementary teachers, administrators, art specialists, and teacher educators. Our findings illustrate the power of art-integrated education to support student learning at high levels and in meaningful ways. (Contains 7 figures.)
