Strategies, Ideas, and Activities to Strengthen Learning across the Curriculum.

Are you a history or math teacher looking to enrich your curriculum? Perhaps the art program at your school has been cut and you’ve been asked to add art to your teaching schedule. Or maybe you’re the administrator who knows that students who study the arts do better on such tests as the SAT. Award winning teacher Eileen Prince provides –

  • Easy-to-use strategies and lesson plans to help you integrate art across the curriculum
  • A substantial resource list for the teacher who doesn’t know where to start
  • Dozens of tips for avoiding logistical problems when executing projects
  • Strategies for introducing other subjects into the art teacher’s lesson plans

From Zephyr Press... "This collection of ideas and lesson plans will help classroom and homeschool teachers integrate art into their general curriculum. These inventive and effective methods use the visual arts to inspire creative writing and drama; explore math, music, science, and history; and cultivate critical thinking skills. Art instructors will learn strategies for incorporating other areas of study into the art classroom. Ranging from thought-provoking suggestions to concrete, hands-on lesson plans, these activities include an extensive resource list for classroom teachers without an art background."

Comments

“Eileen Prince is a master teacher in every sense of the word. This book will be helpful to those who need good ideas for art units or projects, but it is far more than that. This approach is the foundation for development of a meaningful art curriculum for a school or district.”
By Virginia Burney, Retired Math Teacher, Guidance Counselor, School Administrator, Middle School Head, School Board Member, Curriculum Director, and Gifted Education Specialist

“Art Matters is a great ‘how-to’ book for all teachers of any subject. It is well thought out, practical and enables any teacher to integrate creative thinking and art experiences into the curriculum. Eileen Prince shows us that art is multi-dimensional and part of math, science, language arts, and social studies. Best of all, this book makes art realistic and fun.”
By Richard Cohen, Retired Teacher, Indianapolis Public Schools and Board Member, IPS Magnet Schools Business Advisory Council.
