To discuss and share Arts Integration pieces.
To suggest how one could make the pieces better or different.
Arts Integration means to use the Arts to learn and to teach academic skills and concepts. The Arts help people to learn in different ways. There are many ways to skin a fish. Different strokes for different folks. Certain pieces work best for certain people for reasons predictable and not. We always knew that teaching, learning, and science are all art, but what does this mean?
We define a chapter’s Academic content with a written, numbered outline of the scientific process. All the art pieces in the chapter interpret this model outline. The arts pieces should present the scientific process in a rigorous way. The piece needs to be interactive with the intention/purpose that the user/learner can interact with the arts integration piece in order to master/learn/practice the chapters content skills and concepts.
