Getting Ready

Define what arts integration means to you, then read and discuss the following quotation: (10 minutes)

"Arts integration is …
arts learning that is deeply immersed in other content areas.
a strategy to move the arts off the sidelines of education.
a negotiation between the learner and the community.
a way of thinking about learning and teaching.
a way to teach beyond the standards.
not an island."

From Renaissance in the Classroom: Arts Integration and Meaningful Learning

Discuss:

  • Which of these definitions resonates most closely with your own? Which is different?
  • How might these definitions expand your own notion of what arts integration is?
