EARED 6100 Arts Integration, Literacy, and Common Core

This course will investigate how arts integration can support literacy skills by directly linking to Common Core State Standards and twenty-first century skills while building a more democratic culturally responsive classroom. Teachers will learn strategies in drama, visual arts, music, creative movement, and poetry to provide flexible options for their students to access curriculum and diverse ways of expressing understanding. Teachers will discover the role of arts-based learning in differentiated instruction and performance assessment. Teachers will have the opportunity to examine in-depth the meaning of arts integration and to construct curriculum and instruction designed to meet the needs of their particular students.
