Curriculum-Planning Sessions

  • Consider how you might include an arts specialist teacher in a planning session of grade-level teachers.
  • Invite a working artist or a representative of a local arts organization to a session. Together, identify places where arts-based learning would strengthen the curriculum.
  • For more ideas and resources on incorporating the arts, explore arts education resources such as the Web sites of the John F. Kennedy Center’s ArtsEdge or the Perpich Center for Arts Education.
  • Consider using The Arts in Every Classroom’s eight-part workshop as a professional development course. It will help you plan and teach multi-arts curriculum. Graduate credit is available.
