Art, Music, and Movement Connections for Elementary Education Teacher Candidates
Bohannon, R. Larry; McDowell, Carol
General Music Today, v24 n1 p27-31 Oct 2010
Visual arts, movement, and music are all connected by common structural elements. The lesson described in this article was prepared so that teacher candidates in elementary education may make connections among music, movement, and the visual arts using an elemental integration approach. This lesson used visual art to introduce the concept of line and contour. Line and contour were then integrated into movement and music and outside subject areas of math, social studies and geography, science, and language arts. The purpose of this approach was to encourage elementary education majors to experience the arts through a hands-on approach and to become more comfortable in using the arts in the elementary classroom. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
