Materials and Resources

Opening Steps
Facilitator: Engage participants in thinking about the role the arts can play in the classroom by discussing these questions:

  • How can arts education increase student learning and understanding?
  • How can the arts enable students to create knowledge for themselves?
  • How can teachers help students make learning their own process rather than the process of the teacher?
  • How does focusing attention on the artistic process (creating, performing, and responding) affect students’ understanding of the arts?
