More info on ELA and Math

This link is to an article published in November 2012 in Edutopia written by arts integration specialist Susan Riley. This is the first paragraph of the article: These days, integration in any area, be it STEM or the arts, seems to be the buzzword to curriculum designers everywhere. There are so many resources floating around out there with the claim of integrating content areas. Yet, true integration is often difficult to find. Indeed, integration is a rare yet seemingly “magical” approach that has the capacity to turn learning into meaningful practice. Please click here for the entire article.

In December there was a webinar titled “The Common Core State Standards and Its Implications for the Arts” and the archive is now available via the U.S. Department of Education’s website. Click on Arts in Education – Model Development and Dissemination. Click on the word document found at 2012-2013 Arts in Education COP webinars. I have not had a chance to listen to this but do know that Scott Shuler was a participant. Please add a comment at the bottom of this post with your feedback on the webinar.
