The Arts in Every Classroom: What is Art?

Elementary school students and professional learning teams, which are comprised of principals, arts specialist teachers, and classroom teachers, are guided by workshop leaders from the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts to investigate the nature of art by identifying elements of four art forms:  theatre, music, dance, and visual art. The teams explore their perceptions about each art form separately and then examine how the art forms work together in the multi-arts example Quidam.

The Arts in Every Classroom: Historical References in the Arts

How do artistic and historical references inform our understanding of works of art? Using visual and dance elements, students and professional learner teams recognize the uses of historical references in Quidam and take on the role of art historian to discover how art history is being made today. They use costumes to investigate the ways that historical references can affect a work of art, examine a painting by René Magritte, and study choreography by Alwin Nikolais in order to gain insight into the influences of the creators of Quidam.

This workshop for elementary school teachers explores the concept of integrating historical context into art curriculum. It features professional learning teams comprised of principals, arts specialist teachers, and classroom teachers, who are guided by workshop leaders from the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts.

The Arts in Every Classroom: Creating a Multi-Arts Performance Piece

In this workshop for elementary school teachers, professional learning teams and students create, rehearse, and revise a multi-arts performance piece that is based on the central narrative theme in Quidam. In a sequential series of large- and small-group interactions, they create original plots based on Quidam’s “journey” story structure, communicate their stories in a multi-arts medium, and critique and refine their performance pieces. 

The professional learning teams featured in this program, which are comprised of principals, arts specialist teachers, and classroom teachers, are guided by workshop leaders from the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts.

The Arts in Every Classroom: Designing a Multi-Arts Curriculum Unit

This program introduces the Understanding by Design curriculum development process sometimes called “backwards design.” This process builds on the enduring ideas/understandings that drive a curriculum unit — the “why” rather than the “what.” Using a multi-arts unit of study as a model, elementary professional learning teams comprised of principals, arts specialist teachers, and classroom teachers, are guided by workshop leaders from the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts to investigate the components of this process — how the enduring ideas form the basis for essential questions and unit objectives. The learner teams then construct enduring ideas, essential questions, and unit objectives for integrated units of study that they can use in their own schools.

The Arts in Every Classroom: The Role of Assessment in Curriculum Design

Teams of teachers discover how to build formative and summative assessments into the units they are developing. They consider assessment strategies used and continue working on their own units by developing performance tasks that address assessment criteria, and create scoring guidelines to measure student success.

The Arts in Every Classroom: Three Schools, Three Approaches

During the school year that followed the filming of the first six programs, a television production crew visited the three Learner Teams at their own schools. Documentary segments show the Learner Teams planning and teaching arts-based lessons that grew out of what they learned. Discussions at the end of the school year, facilitated by one of the workshop leaders, give the Learner Team members the chance to reflect on developments in their teaching practice.

Then, a theatre teacher mentors stagecraft students who are responsible for the technical aspects of a dance concert. In an intermediate visual arts course, a teacher builds on students’ prior learning in a foundation course. Finally, a vocal music teacher works with two classes: students learning to read music, and an advanced jazz ensemble.

The Art of Teaching the Arts: A Workshop for High School Teachers - Addressing the Diverse Needs of Students

Arts teachers are aware of and respond to the many differences they find among their students. In this program, participants meet a visiting theatre artist who takes advantage of the different backgrounds and learning styles of ninth-graders to help them understand and embrace the playwriting process. A visual arts teacher brings together honors art students and students with disabilities, so they can learn from each other. As a music teacher works with different classes, she addresses needs common to all students. Finally, in a movement class for non-dance majors, teachers help students explore human anatomy.
