Arts Infused Teaching & Learning
This course has been
designed for elementary art, music, and physical education
teachers. This course has been specifically developed as an
online graduate learning experience which follows workshop
participation. Topics covered in this class include:
interdisciplinary facilitating, arts infused project methods
and approaches, multiple intelligences, entry points.
You are Going to Learn
As you develop “functional knowledge” you will learn to use
Multiple Intelligence theory to enhance student understanding
through seven discrete entry points.
Why You are
Going to Learn It
Students access learning opportunities to become engaged in
meaningful experiences that result in genuine understanding
leading to functional knowledge. You are expected to teach
utilizing explicit objectives and to stipulate the expected
outcomes in terms of genuine student understanding.
How You are
Going to Use It
Human minds do not all work the same way, and human beings do not
have the same cognitive strengths and weaknesses. You are
going to help students master certain curricular or disciplinary
materials by teaching and assessing using a variety of strategies,
models, and techniques that accommodate different learning styles.
The completion of this course yields two graduate credit hours.
Credit is provided by the University of Rio Grande, Rio Grande,
Ohio. The course begins the first Monday of each month.
