My biggest take away from the articles is how empowering the arts can be for all students of all ability levels. Not only does integrating art into the regular classroom deepen understanding for students, it also allows students who may not find success in traditional scoring methods, be successful and can show what they have learned.
What connections can you make to your classroom?
Integrating the arts into any subject can come naturally and can work with every subject. Many times I only think of math and social studies integration with art, but there really is a lot of opportunities in science and language arts as well.
