According to Duma (as cited in Rabkin, 2014, pp. 8-9), art integration is Art integration at best makes the arts an interdisciplinary partner with other subjects. Students receive rigorous instruction in the arts and thoughtful integrated curriculum that makes deep structural connections between the arts and other subjects. It enables students to learn both deeply. The practice of making art, and its performance or exhibition becomes an essential part of pedagogy and assessment, but not just in art or music class. These activities become part of the routine of studying history, science, reading and
The benefits of arts in schools develops and impacts a student dramatically from as a child to an adult. It develops imagination, critical thinking, creative skills, and develops goal-setting skills needed in the classroom and in the future.

Not only in the real world do the arts help but also in schools, it motivates the student to learn, help with memory, facilitates understanding, enhances communication and promotes relationships, improves problem solving and critical thinking skills, which adds to overall academic achievement and school success.
A great place to learn, is in a classroom. Christopher Emdin, author of For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood... and the Rest of Y 'all Too: Reality Pedagogy and Urban Education, describes the ideal classroom setting for teaching students how to effectively code switch. Mrs. Hamma’s Basic English course depicted in Nicholasa Mohr’s short story, “The English Lesson,” is a great representation of this setting. Evidently, Emdin’s claims validate
This article “Terrific Teaching Tips” by Laurel Borgia and Carol Owles, with contributions by Julie Frisch, Louise Stearns, and Lindsay Craig, are all inspired teachers looking to improve effective strategies to produce better instruction methods. Educators are constantly researching to discovery how to create a better setting which benefit the students in acquiring learning skill. By motivating a childs mind with the use of manipulatives in order to better grasp understanding. What do good readers do? They discuss what they have read, what better way to use manipulatives to engage in class discussion.
When engaging students in lessons, the techniques “Everybody Writes” and “Cold Call” capture the attention of the whole class. In order to create a community of students who contribute to their learning, the technique “Everybody Writes” is effective. A teacher
In second language learning, using visual aids is a necessity teaching strategy in both English as Second Language (ESL) classroom and English as Foreign Language (EFL) classroom (Allen, Kate & Marquez, 2011). They believed that using visual aids in the process of teaching a foreign language can strengthen what learners have learned and increase their interest. In their article, they proposed the positive impact of using visuals and they concluded that teachers should become aware of the strategies in which they can use visual aids and use them purposefully in the classroom to enhance students’ learning. Visual aids can be defined as using objects, drawings, charts, photographs, videos, multimedia presentation, etc.
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
Within my lesson I will utilize many aspects of the “MUSIC” mnemonic, also known as empowering students, fostering success, stimulating interest, and showing and promoting care in my lesson, to help students be successful in the classroom. My lesson will empower my students because they will feel as though they have a sense of control within the lesson. For example, within the lesson, the students will be able to make choices about the Decision Making Hierarchy chart and the two-page essay. The students can decide for themselves what types of concepts they want to discuss on the essay, and they can also decide what types of alternative choices Victor Frankenstein could have made on the chart. Furthermore, the students can personally relate
I bring a creative approach to teaching and planning, as creativity is an important part of who I am. I use a variety of resources and methods of delivery and learning to engage and motivate children. Whilst providing PPA, I had the confidence from teachers to alter plans and plan lessons using these approaches. These lessons received praise for my content and methods of delivery. I use first hand experiences to immerse and engage children throughout topics.
In a normal classroom setting, students are expected to do exactly as they are told: everything from writing a perfectly structured essay to integrating a complex function. In an art or music classroom, students are exposed to skills beyond the basic math, history, English, and science requirements. Students are also encouraged to use their wild imagination and creativity to express themselves. In a society where, new changes and inventions are introduced daily, it is pivotal to have the creativity and the ability to think "outside of the box."
Critical thinking skills, academic knowledge, creative expression, thought and expression are of many ways arts integration enrich and deepen students understanding of arts and academic disciplines. As I implement arts integration within my classroom, I will carefully plan learning goals embedded within the curricular areas and national standards for arts. Building on a student’s knowledge and skills creates a quality foundation for art instruction. Staying consistent and reinforcing, each integrated art discipline through various models of instruction will implement a successful foundation of arts instruction with core
IDEA OR PRACTICE BEING USED: The district worked collaboratively with teachers to develop personalized learning for all educators to help with using new technology in their classroom. Educators were given an opportunity to teach learning sessions about something they feel they do well or choose learning sessions relevant to where they were with the ease of using technology using the SAMR model. Teachers could also create a TEPS project that involves exploring an educational project that can improve the classroom, and they earn graduate hours. Domain and Understanding that the ideas addresses: Domain III: Systems for Capacity Building Understanding: 0005 Understand how to use professional development for staff, faculty, and self, to promote lifelong learning and the success of all student
They claim if art educators want to be taken seriously, they have to make other arguments to justify their significance in the classroom. The authors’ examines the framework of studio art of several art educators and observes how they teach and what the students learn in the classroom. The book is divided into three parts: studio classroom, studio habits of mind, and integrating studio structures with studio habits of the mind. Each part examines teachers and their practices in the classroom. The authors conclude, visual art teaches students not only art making but an understanding of the art world outside the
OLG offers many activities to help you find your passion. I have enjoyed the arts programs like Drama Club and Art Journaling. Mrs. Renick always challenges me to create something unique and to tell a story that hasn’t been told. Though the arts programs have helped me think creatively, so has the way classes are taught. Teachers use many hands-on techniques to help us learn.
This article presents a qualitative study done to find out how teachers are integrating the arts in their classrooms. Data was gathered through personal experiences, teacher interviews, classroom observations, focus groups and written tests. The arts are extremely important to the development of the child as they encompass many disciplines and promote higher levels of thinking. However, arts can easily be devalued simply by the way that teachers/administrators present them to the students either in the form or decoration or a meaningfully constructed piece of art. The author attempted to answer a single research question: How do teachers understand, implement and experience Arts Integration?
