In Kentucky, we have Program Reviews for Arts/Humanities, Writing a nd Practical Living / Career Studies (PLCS). My interpretation… the idea is to ensure all teachers across disciplines are integrating concepts, strategies into their classrooms on a regular basis in efforts to make connections with student interests and enhance their learning experiences.
I have used many routines from Making Thinking Visible over the past two years to improve writing-to-learn and writing-to-demonstrate learning opportunities for students. I feel they will tell you our reflection and analysis of work through writing and discussion makes their learning stick more.
Definitely check out the Thinking Routines and Curriculum Connections links for some insightful resources that can help other content areas find purposeful, quality connections to art for their courses.
Finally, a tweet from @approx_normal the other morning provided these awesome classroom tasks focusing on Career Technical Education.
Hope this provides some helpful information for teachers looking to make connections in the areas of Arts, PLCS and useful thinking routines to help with Writing implementation.
