ART ACROSS THE CURRICULUM

ART ACROSS THE CURRICULUMSome years back I was curious and I started to ask myself how the creative arts can benefit learning in other subjects.

As I began to look into my topics of interest I soon found that this idea of using art to teach other subjects has been given a name – interdisciplinary art (Arts Integration) art across the curriculum cross-curricular and many moreSuper Teachers like me 💗💕💕💕😃😃 are always on the hunt for new and better ways to get students to engage with learning and retain information.

Because of this eagerness to support student learning, trends, frameworks, concepts, and techniques are plentiful within the world of education.

While some techniques fall short when it comes to evidence, one promising concept that might have crossed your table is arts integration.Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim in school. We attain unity only through variety. Differences must be integrated, not annihilated, not absorbed.

Without any of this skills a child may be not function to the fullness in 21st century, do you agree with me.The only problem with arts integration is ensuring that curriculum and learning goals are still met without sacrificing the creativity and flexibility of art. It can be a complicated balancing act.

To address this. I will be explore some pratical ways to TO INTEGRATE ART ACROSS THE CURRICULUM

This is (Part One)I strongly 💪 believe school systems should base their curriculum not on the idea of separate subjects, but on the much more fertile idea of disciplines… which makes possible a fluid and dynamic curriculum that is interdisciplinary.What is art accros the curriculum
It’s an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject and meets evolving objectivesArts as the curriculum

which is when students study specific art forms, typically within classes.

EXAMPLE
If a school has a music, art, drama or dance teacher, their approach is most likely and primarily art as curriculum.The arts find their way in to the school and classrooms every day in a variety of ways. The variations can be distilled into three main categories.

• Arts as Curriculum
• Arts-Enhanced Curriculum
• Arts-Integrated CurriculumArts- enhanced curriculum

which focuses on the arts as a way to enhance or explore a curricular concept. This form of arts integration doesn’t require teachers to have specific training in the different arts forms.

When arts are used as a device or strategy to support other curriculum areas, but no objectives in the art form are explicit, then the approach is called Arts-Enhanced Curriculum.• Arts- integrated curriculum,

which is where the arts are the method for exploring the curriculum. In this style, lessons may have dual objectives that include the art form and the content knowledge.For example, students sing the ABCs as a means to other ends—remembering the letters and sequence of the alphabet.

However, students are not usually expected to learn about melody, song structure, or develop specific singing skills.In Art-integrated Curriculum, the arts become the approach to teaching and the vehicle for learning.

Students meet dual learning objectives when they engage in the creative process to explore connections between an art form and another subject area to gain greater understanding.

For example, students meet objectives in science ( understanding chemical ) and in art tie and dyeAllow students to explain their thoughts, ideas, and feelings through drawing and labeling.

Some students have a difficult time expressing themselves through writing. Children, especially those learning English or with special needs, might find that drawing helps them explain themselves and communicate better.

Vocabulary, grammar, and writing can then be developed based on their art. In addition, visuals help students better understand written words by providing more context, thus helping them connect meaningful input to a particular topic or text.The experience is mutually reinforcing, creating a dramatization provides an authentic context for students to learn more about the science content and as students delve deeper into the sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid experiment

This type of content creates a growing understandings impact their dramatizations.Lego Engineers

Besides LegoLand embodying a living, breathing demonstration of how Legos inspire children, Lego is making a fortune off the coolest kits around. Lego building requires everything from patience to vision. To achieve that vision, the builder needs good strategy. Strategy relies on mathematical skills. Everything from basic addition and subtraction to engineering skills blossoms when Lego’s pop into the picture. So, have students use Legos to demonstrate mathematical skills at each and every levelCreative writing with pen alone is not making sense. Use other means ( drama drawing, canvas design, animation, and more can be use.😃😃😃💞😃💖😃💓💞💝If yours is a virtual classroom, build a blog around your students’ creations. 

Try to understand tools like canva design, animation and other

Lastly, introducing art into any classroom means thoughtful planning but also a very real understanding that there will be loss of control. Knowing this can be very liberating for a teacher, but it can also be uncomfortable. However, once you allow yourself to be comfortable with it, students will master the lesson and, more often than not, surpass Allow students to explain their thoughts, ideas, and feelings through drawing and labeling.
