As a visual arts educator, I try to complement the concepts taught in other disciplines with intent to help students understand how all subjects are connected. I welcome collaboration with teachers of core subjects. Do you do this too? Please share your successes.
Tammi, although I don’t teach now, I used to teach visual arts at Marshall High School. Back then, for a short time, we offered a course that combined music history, literary history and history of the visual arts. I learned as much or more than the students did. I never fully appreciated history until I could see how all human knowledge and creations are connected. Scientific developments are also reflected in the arts.
