FAE14004: The Arts in Every Classroom: Designing a Multi-Arts Curriculum Unit
Subject Area: {"bd212ca49a57b0bddadee19200769529":{"option":"Fine Arts","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

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.

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.

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.

The program opens with teachers sharing passionate insights about why they teach the arts to young people. Then, short classroom segments illustrate how arts teachers employ seven “principles of artful teaching” to meet the needs and imaginations of their students.

In the video program, a dance teacher gives senior students leadership responsibilities and coaches them in their choreography projects. 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.

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.

Arts teachers take on a variety of roles and use many different instructional techniques as they engage with their students. Teachers can be instructors, mentors, directors, coaches, artists, performers, collaborators, facilitators, critics, and audience members. In this program, participants follow a vocal music teacher as she takes on different roles in order to encourage students to find creative solutions to artistic challenges. Next, an acting teacher becomes a facilitator as his students report on research about theatre history. Then a visual arts teacher guides her students in a drawing assignment, varying her approach based on the students’ individual needs. Finally, two dance teachers engage students in critical analysis of a painting, as a way to encourage expression with words as well as movement.

Arts teachers create a safe environment where students feel free to express their thoughts and feelings, and to take creative risks. In this program, participants meet an Acting I teacher who helps students let go of their inhibitions, and an Acting II teacher who encourages students to take creative risks as they interpret monologues. In dance class, a teacher asks students to work closely in pairs so they can study subtle aspects of movement technique. In a visual arts department, the teachers work together to create a community that gives students multiple outlets for artistic learning. Finally, a music teacher builds his students’ confidence and skills as they learn the basics of improvisational singing.
