We hope your school year is off to a great start! As you continue to work with your AOC Teams on developing art-integrated lesson plans for the semester ahead, keep in mind ways to incorporate meaningful co-teaching opportunities. When teachers co-facilitate a lesson, students are encouraged to make interdisciplinary connections (plus it is pretty cool to see the math teacher being hands-on in the art classroom!). Check out the following link to learn more successful tips for co-teaching.
Consider enhancing your lesson plans by using a variety of digital media platforms. The article listed below lists five ways you can actively promote critical thinking skills and student self-assessment through the use of technology. Promote substantive research by having students conduct advanced searches on Google and Twitter.
We have also added two useful handouts which define the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. Links to both documents are located on the right side of the page and listed below.
