Hi. I too am interested in intregating the arts into the classroom,
but I worry when the arts curriculum is being formed to meet
the regular classroom requirements. I have just finished my masters
in gifted and talented education with a focus on how to
meet the needs of all students, especially the visually talented ones.
As a 20 year veteran of both regular elementary classroom and
art classroom I see a need for teachers to work together
across all curriculums...A goal that is almost impossible.
I would be happy to communicate with you about some of my learning
centers I have created or explain some of my units I have used
that I feel have been successful.
