Creating Connections: Integrating the Visual Arts with Social Studies
Burstein, Joyce H.; Knotts, Greg
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v23 n1 p20-23 Sep-Oct 2010
Integrating the visual and performing arts is one clear and concrete strategy to engage students in learning social studies content and concepts while making them interactive and relevant to their daily lives. In this article, the authors offer a rationale for teaching integrated arts with social studies, provide a framework for planning, and illustrate specific classroom examples in two different grade levels. These strategies and lessons were taught in real classrooms and provide a sample of possibilities that elementary teachers can implement with their own students. (Contains 12 notes.)
