  1. Arts Hailey Bush, Amanda Fisher, Dayna Bergeson, Miranda Andreason, Tasha Langford in Education
  2. Class Discussion ● How have the arts affected you in your life? ●Have any of you participated in the arts? (Music, dance, drawing, etc…) ●How do you think your involvement affected your other academics, or overall learning?
  3. The Arts Teach: ●good judgement ojudgement vs. one right or wrong answer ●problems have more than one solution ●multiple perspectives ●subtleties osmall differences can have large effects ●help children say what cannot be said ●experience we can't get from another source ●the art's position in school curriculum symbolizes what adults believe is important
  4. Visual ●Visual art is usually what we think of when we think of "art" in school, or just in general. Visual art is anything that's primarily visual, that includes ceramics, drawings, painting, sculpture, photography... ●Art is a wonderful way for children to develop in ways that they don't get to in a classroom setting. ●Art has been shown to help disadvantaged youth catch up. It is a great equalizer.
  5. Visual This is an example of what not to do. Art should be about creating things, and letting the kids branch out and explore. It should not be about putting together pre-cut out shapes and having them do the exact same thing
  6. Visual Visual art is relatively easy to implement in your own classroom. It can usually be tied in with lessons in history, or other subjects. Allowing children the opportunity to create is incredibly important.
  7. CREATE "The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before... You might say, “I’m not the creative type...If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative Being in the universe. Isn’t it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God? Think about it—your spirit body is a masterpiece, created with a beauty, function, and capacity beyond imagination. The more you trust and rely upon the spirit, the greater your capacity to create" -Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
  8. Musical Playing a musical instrument at a young age can teach children self-discipline, planning, and self-confidence. Music is unique because it engages both sides of the brain.
  9. Music continued. Because music requires self-control, attention, and memorization it improves the executive functions of thebrain. So what? Having a better working executive function can help students succeed more in school because they have a longer attention-span and are less distractible.
  10. It is amazing the difference that is seen when children have the arts integrated into their education. Research has shown that children respond positively to dance and music in the classroom. Test scores are higher, retention is increased, there is an increased quality of life, more creativity, and they are able to recall details and explain concepts to others. There is no other way that children would respond so well. Through curriculum involving different forms of art, the teacher has the power to change the student’s life for the best. o Broadens The Mind o Contributes to Whole Person o Education cannot be taught o Flexible Personality Dance
  11. Dance continued “In today’s fast-paced, high technology society, our education systems are being bombarded with ever increasing challenges and demands. One challenge is to produce well rounded, thinking students who can cope with a constantly changing society. Educators often try to meet the challenge by calling for higher test scores, thereby reducing the education process to teaching and learning only what can be measured on standardized tests. Yet, we all know that such emphasis will not ensure education in human sensitivity nor in the processes of creative problem solving. Dance is an ideal vehicle to achieve such educational ends. In fact, now, more than ever before, dance approached and taught as an art form needs to become an integral part of our educational system.” (Gibb, 1983).
  12. Liberal Arts Definition: Academic subjects such as literature, philosophy, mathematics, and the sciences as distinct from professional and technical subjects.
  13. Liberal Arts, cont. Why study the Liberal Arts? Harvard gave this point: "This kind of learning is not only one of the enrichments of existence; it is one of the achievements of civilization. It heightens students' awareness of the human and natural worlds they inhabit. It makes them more reflective about their beliefs and choices, more self-conscious and critical of their presuppositions and motivations, more creative in their problem-solving, more perceptive of the world around them, and more able to inform themselves about the issues that arise in their lives, personally, professionally, and socially."
  14. Liberal Arts, Cont. ● Liberal Arts begin to open your mind to new ways of thinking. ● As future teachers it is important to have some knowledge of Liberal arts because "liberal arts courses constitute a rich source of knowledge on which teachers could draw when they teach" ● This knowledge could help us see many different side of things (philosophy, math, and literature).
  15. Unique ways Art Helps: ● The arts reach students who are not otherwise being reached ● The arts reach students in ways that they are not being reached. ● The arts connect students to themselves and eachother ● Encourage self-directed learning ● Promote complexity in the learning experience ● The arts transform the environment for learning ● The arts provide new challenges for those students already considered successful ● The arts connect learning experiences to the world of real work ● Allow management of risk by the learners
