Before Watching

The Arts in Every Classroom is based on the premise that the arts are valuable in themselves. Arts are essential to the development of people and their culture — and that is why arts should be part of every school’s curriculum.

In this program, educators and others point out that the arts also enhance learning in other areas. As you watch this program, consider these questions:

  • How do the arts contribute to students’ readiness to learn?
  • How do the arts promote a better learning environment?
  • How can the arts be used to improve student performance in other academic subjects, such as reading, math, science, and history?
  • Why are the learning goals described in the National Arts Education Standards important for all students?
  • How can teachers use the arts to advance effective instructional strategies such as inquiry-based teaching and learning?
