Getting Ready

Read and discuss the following quotation: (10 minutes)

“Properly conceived, the arts constitute a great integrating force in the school curriculum. To achieve such an end they must be viewed as a component of every discipline, for their subject matter is as broad as life itself.”

Charles Flower. Strong Arts, Strong Schools, 1996

Discuss these questions:

  • How true does this statement seem to you?
  • Where have you seen elements of this at your school?
  • Is this a worthwhile and achievable goal to strive for? Why or why not?
