Transcript of Arts Integration at AFIA

Arts Integration at AFIA The What, Why, and How The Why The How Arts Integration and Project Based Learning "When well planned and implemented, arts integration is one of the most effective ways for a wide range of students with a wide range of interests, aptitudes, styles, and experiences to form a community of active learners taking responsibility for and ownership of their own learning."

"The reason why arts integration holds so much potential for the classroom is the power of art to engage students in experiential learning, which is the process for making meaning directly from the learning experience as opposed to academic learning, the study of a subject without the direct learning from experiencing that subject." “One of the reasons I have come to concentrate on imagination as a means through which we can assemble a coherent world is that imagination is what, above all, makes empathy possible."

(Greene, Releasing the Imagination, p. 3) Steps:
1. Classroom teacher/students provides a topic
2. Classroom teacher and Arts Coordinator create a topic map*
3. Classroom teacher finds natural ties to Common Core Standards
4. Arts Coordinator finds natural ties to National Fine Arts Standards
5. Classroom teacher and Arts Coordinator create bows of authenticity including content and arts objectives
6. Classroom teacher and Arts Coordinator decide when Arts Coordinator will provide support during "messing around" activities and the project (discussed during weekly planning) What does this mean for you? Being at AFIA means doing what is best for children, embracing the process, challenging one another and constant re-evaluation I am glad you are here and look forward to working with each of you!

The reasons for Arts Integration are... experiential learning student engagement imagination empathy What are we doing that is working? Some of the ways we are integrating arts into the classroom: Visual Thinking: 10 minutes per day of looking at a work of art or object and using critical thinking skills to have a class discussion (Classroom Teacher)

Imaginative Learning: one 45 minute lesson per week in art making and literacy
