What might musical notes teach students about mathematical fractions? Could Handloom saris help students better understand the Indian Independence Movement? Art Integrated Learning (AIL) is an approach to teaching-learning based on combining curricular areas with various art forms - be it fine arts, performing arts, or even culinary arts! This integration not only makes the learning process joyful for the students but also promotes a deeper understanding of academic concepts. This workshop will focus on an understanding of AIL, and how teachers can map different art forms and practices to subject-specific concepts & classroom activities, developing an interdisciplinary classroom approach. The workshop will be aligned with the Art-integrated curriculum suggested by the CBSE/ NCERT, but will have useful ideas for all educators who would like to learn how art can help add more richness to their teaching!
Session Duration: 2 hours
Certification: All Highr Workshops are certified, and participants will receive certificates of completion upon successfully submitting the workshop showcase activity.
This session is designed as a part of the 'Delivering Instruction' domains under Highr's Big Four of Quality Teaching. To learn more about the Big 4, click here.
The Participant will be able to:
- Understand the purpose and practice of Art-Integrated Learning
- Explore different art forms as a medium of conceptual, interdisciplinary learning
- Design Art-Integrated activities & lesson plans for subject-specific learning experiences
Each workshop at Highr involves a classroom showcase activity that the participants create to use in their own classrooms or for their own teaching practice. Here’s what you’ll create in this workshop:
Participants will prepare a sketch note on Art-integration in the classroom. They will also design an art-integrated activity for a subject/concept/grade of their choosing. The activity should focus on using any visual/performing art as a medium to introduce/ explain a chosen concept. They may also attempt to bring about an interdisciplinary approach to the activity and suggest extensions from other subjects.
This workshop would benefit all Primary & Middle School Educators, and enthusiasts of all things artistic. You do not need to be an Art teacher to attend this workshop.
