Well done!!! I especially enjoyed the short teacher stories and questions.
The responses were very interesting. I have also thought about the
Holocaust Response questions in my teaching in the past.
How do you do socially relevant art in an elementary school
art room setting? Our time is so short, our curriculum is so isolated. How
do you turn the responses into "teachable moments?" Are there more
questions that can be pulled from this experience?
Curriculum integration is one way I found to extend elemenatry art time and
collaborate with other teachers to help connect "teachable moments?" More
teacher stories (short case studies) can also be found on the ArtsEdNet,
Art & Ecology web site, just click on Art and Ecology Curriculum and
Integration on the home page.
Thanks for the posting, Craig. Many of the teachers that I have had the
opportunity to work with really enjoy reading these short telling tales.
