The classroom examples of arts integration that appear in these workshop programs have been keyed to the McREL Compendium of Standards and Benchmarks, a synthesis of national standards in each of the disciplines. A chart showing these connections can be found on the Standards page of the companion Web site for Connecting With the Arts: A Teaching Practices Library, 6-8.
In addition, helpful guidelines for arts integration are gathered in Authentic Connections: Interdisciplinary Work in the Arts (PDF) . These guidelines were produced in 2002 by the Consortium of National Arts Education Associations, a group that included the American Alliance For Theatre & Education, Music Educators National Conference, National Art Education Association, and the National Dance Education Organization.
