Benefits & Challenges of Arts Integration
Professional Voices Kate Boyd ArtsEdge Website Bayles & Orland,
Fears about Creating Professional Voices Sir Ken Robinson:
& Arts in Schools TE 491-Section 740 American Alliance for Theater Education Website Sample Superstars Website Incredible Art Department Website -Finding ways around school systems forming their curriculum standardize testing.
-Being creative and allowing the students to use their own ideas without telling them they are wrong. Challenges with arts integration? -The role of imagination plays in the education system is “every school should be different and great built on diversity and conformity. This is to avoid leading us into the ‘fast-food’ category industry,” said Sir Ken Robinson.
-When allowing students to use their own internal creativity it allows them to be original and explore more opportunities.
-Not misdiagnosing students wrong at a young age because they did not meet the required state standards.
-Getting to teach students personal learning instead of practical core teaching. Benefits to arts integration? -Teachers misdiagnose students at a young age with a problem because they do not complete the ‘standardized’ testing goals.
-Began to impact and restrain children’s creativity at age 7 and 8 when they become more self-conscious.
-Cut backs in Art Education in schools.
-Incorporate the arts within my core subject areas. As well, creativity can be used in school systems in and outside the art education.
-Correcting our industrialized education and making it more personalized.
-Use a teaching style of “personalized learning,” were a child can use practical strategies using creativity in educational systems.
-“Nurture, not undermine creativity,” said Sir Ken Robinson.
-Stick to Sir Ken Robinson statement, “Creativity is important as literacy.”
-Example: A way to fire up imagination, allows students to choose what they want to read, and write. If they are geared towards something they want to do than they will be more willing to put more effort into it. -Sir Ken Robinson, “there’s a terrible tendency to confuse raising standards with standardizing.”
--Robinson said, “education is meant to be the process by which, we engage people in there fullness to give them a sense of who they are and there full capabilities to lead a life that means something to them and the rest of us.”
-Education is taking away students opportunity to use their own internal creativeness of whom they are.
-Students are not prepared to be wrong. They will never take chances to come up with something original because they have been told to stay on the same path all their lives.
-Student fear if stepping off the path they will lead to failure.
-According to Sir Ken Robinson intelligence has: diverse, dynamic, distinct characteristics. Narrowing the curriculum and conforming into certain areas that pressures the students to compete without interest. Why is this happening? -When I was a student in elementary up until the end of high school I was formed to take ‘standardized test’ required by the state.
-Teachers pressured me to reach certain goals in order for them not to lose their jobs.
-I lost passion for things I loved from being pressure to achieve higher levels in core subject areas.
-Lost some of my creativity and independence to be an internal thinker and morphed to becoming partial external thinker to my surroundings.
-Had to explore outside my school system to find internal interest not provided throughout my education.
-Example: Video Production. Taught myself the basic film techniques and editing skills. Explored outside opportunities to use my own creativity. No pressure, and I choose to do it. How does it relate to my past? -Creative expert who challenges the way we’re educating our children future.
-Wants to rethink our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
-“We are educating people out of their creativity,” said Sir Ken Robinson.
-If people personalize, customize, and engage children in imagination at any age you get much higher results, and deeper commitment in the process of education.

1. Multiple means for Representation:
-Presenting information in a different ways.
2. Multiple means of Action and Expression:
-Engage students and offering a variety of ways to construct and demonstrate their understandings.
3. Multiple means of Engagement:
-Involve students in learning activities optimizing their own free choice to motivating and engaging their outcome.
- Each student learns in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults. Benefits with arts integration using ArtsEdge? - Explored different lesson plans throughout my TE 491 class using ArtsEdge.
Examples: The Dance of the Monarch Butterfly through Dance Integration and Science. Develop an understanding of the monarch butterfly life cycle communicating through dance. Learn choreograph movements forming the building blocks of elements through dance.
- Experienced this personally with the lesson plan in class called: - Experiencing the Rainforest Arts Integrated. We used the same dance concepts by learning basic dance elements connecting the ecosystems presented in the rainforest. Explored the connectedness and interdependence within the rainforest. As well, levels of dance high, medium, and low holding counts, through movement phases.
Other Examples: Mandalas, Polygons, and Symmetry (Visual Art/Mathematics), The Poetics of Hip Hop (Visual Arts/Geography/World History), and the Civil War Letters (Theater/Language Arts). - “ArtsEdge is the Kennedy Center’s free digital resource for teaching and learning through and about the arts,” (KCAE).
- It is a program that allows students, parents, and educators a resource in exploring arts integration.
- Educators can find lesson plans, how to’s and standards on the website.
- Once an educator has selected a lesson it explains it step by step incorporating a core and art subject area meeting state standards.
- The how to section allows for tip suggestions, guides, and articles to support teaching in and with the arts.
- Standards makes specification to what art subject an educator wants to learn about in a certain grade level. What is this? - May struggle to get students express their fears about art.
- Making sure this incorporates with art.
- Overcoming all the artist fears:
Pretending: Fear that you’re not a real artist.
Talent: no sense of direction or goal to reach you will end up in the wrong direction.
Perfection: may hinder or help your work
Annihilation: ceasing production
Magic: proving your work contains this magical element
Expectation: have a balance between what you hope to see
- Overcoming others opinions:
Understanding: Do not cater to your audience but accept know they will accept what you have created
Acceptance: Do not think about rejection
Approval: Wanting people to like your work
- Making sure as an educator I feel comfortable teaching a lesson by not possessing any of these fears when doing so. Challenges? - Pointed out as an artist how I can challenge my self in different ways by overcoming my obstacles I face.
- Can teach these concepts to future students and see if this changes who they are as an artist and as a person.
- Finding ways to overcome fears artistically.
- Not letting others opinions bother your outcome of your work. Benefits? - Relating my experiences to one of my classmates in TE 491. We fear the same things but in different dynamics.
Example: Both perfectionists, she cares too much about school performance, while I care too much about art perfection. When trying to use my creativity as an artist I critique my work so much that I never finish anything. My classmate on the other hand completes her task but struggles at starting over and over again until it is finished. Also, approval is a major issue we both related with as a creator. For me it is not just a major issue for my artwork but in society in general. Peers shape that I am to make me want to constantly competing for something. To get better grades, have a better education, and even survive out in the real world. It takes away from who I really am and have to find ways to rise about those struggles become who you want to be.
-As an artist it showed me things I could work on and be more open minded.
- As an artist I wont let my fears about others affect my outcome of my work. Experience? -David Bayles and Ted Orland are co-authors
of 'Art and Fear'.

said Bayles and Orland.
-Understand some of the fears we have in
creativity using arts expression.

-“Problems arise when we confuse others’ priorities with our own.”
-Fearing about what others think: Understanding, Acceptance, and Approval What is this about? Who are they? Bayles & Orland,

-It only has the ideas for Theater Education and not other art subject areas to use with art integration.
-Only accessible to select members and not a variety of people. Challenges? -Experienced a lesson plan called ‘Why Vote,’ using drama and social studies integration within our TE 491 classroom. The main objectives were to understand the value of the right to vote in history, and perform improvisation, human sculpture, and scene work with drama. -This incorporated arts integration using those two core curriculum requirements.
-While learning about the different voting dynamics, I also learned how to be an individual sculpture using tableau reaction to what we felt about voting.
-Also, used improvisation to change our movements and facial expressions.
-Practiced in groups about the history of suffrage in America and had to act out a scene have a clear beginning, middle, and end.

That is an essential thing to have in order to incorporate art integration into your classroom. It allows you to focus on the things that brought you to teaching in the first place. The New Teacher’s Survival Guide, “gives new teachers a collection of easy-to-use tips and reproducible.”
