Summary

This comprehensive, introductory text shows teachers how to meaningfully integrate literature, art, drama, dance, and music throughout curricular areas by providing a basic arts knowledge base, clear reasons for integration, and the application of basic integration principles. Intended for undergraduate education majors or practicing classroom teachers new to the concept of integrating the arts, the text's creative problem-solving process and integrated approach uses the arts as tools to learn. The only book on the market which clearly makes the case to integrate the arts on a daily basis, it summarizes the concepts and skills of five art forms and shows teachers how to plan and implement units and specific lessons which integrate at least one art form with a curricular area in each lesson.
