Reading about the frustrating and demanding scheduling problems you art
teachers are experiencing and conquering with the flexibility of your
creative spirits, I wonder whether thematic teaching would or does make
your school day or year easier or harder. Are any of you able to teach
using themes within your compartmenalized days? Does one theme for
every class work? Could a theme like "Our Place in the World" work for
all levels for a whole year? What themes do you use and for how long?
Do "regular" classroom teachers and you "irregular?"art teachers ever
get together and plan for lessons? What would be an ideal
way for art to be taught by an expert and yet intergrated the into the
rest of the curriculum? Is this possible? What place does themes have
in this intergration? Does using themes excite, please, frustrate,
challange you? Can using them make your life easier in any way? Do you
have to make this work as in scheduling or can it work for you?
