Hi to all, well I just finished my first entire weekend of graduate school.
Yes, I have embarked on a two year course of study so that I may further
myself educational....and keep my job. My program is called Creative Arts in
Learning and to put in briefly is a program that looks at how to create
curriculum that incorporates all the art modalities..visual, movement,
music, poetry, drama and storytelling. In this program we will look at how
to integrate our very important subject of art into other curriculum that
exists out there in the "rest of the school". We also talk about the
theories of multiple intelligences. Any thoughts on that? But what I really
wanted to say to everyone was that I sat for the first time in a room full
of classroom teachers, and other visual arts educators and felt respected,
valued and actually do I dare say it "necessary"???? I was asked my opinion,
thoughts and judgements. It was a great feeling, especially considering that
I do not get that type of treatment in my own school. It was great! I will
be working on a three part unit that incorporates these modalities and I was
wondering if anyone has embarked on such a thing before. I have a few ideas
like the historical worlds of Egypt or the Incas or the Mayans..I think it
would be great to incorporate history, but was told that it really isn't
necessary. So if you have a lesson out there that incorporates storytelling
or writing poetry or singing or movement or drama...let me know. I can
always use the ideas. For now, I will say goodbye..I feel like its
Midnight!!!take care, Stephanie
