Integrating the arts into your core-subject classroom might seem like a wish-list item you'll never have time to implement. What does it even mean? What does it look like? And what resources can make it easier to accomplish?
While arts integration can take a lot of planning and preparation, a good starting place might be to simply think of it in two buckets:
1) giving students opportunities to make deep connections to the content through their own creative projects
2) giving students opportunities to see how others have used artistic expression to make sense of the learning topics at hand.
