The Case for Integrated Arts in the Classroom | Celebrate the Arts with Kids | Scoop.it

Arts integration is the blending of the visual, performing and media arts into other content areas-generally those that have traditionally carried more "weight," such as English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science and social studies. There is some difference as to how, and to what degree, the arts are integrated into these core subjects; some practitioners engage solely in professional development for classroom teachers while others work with students during in-school residencies. It is commonly accepted that students gain an understanding of the skills and knowledge of each content area that is richer and deeper because of engagement in both.

Regardless of your age, the idea of having every aspect of you put under the literal and figurative spotlight for evaluation is intimidating.

Gardner's theory posits that we all possess different capacities of intelligence that allow us to learn and experience our world in different ways. No one person possesses just one of these intelligences; rather we each have different proportions of these intelligence areas and this impacts how we best learn, engage and express our own thoughts and ideas.
