Course Description

This course studies the aspects of human society and culture through an education lens. This course prepares the student majoring in education to incorporate the various visual and performing arts from multiple humanities into everyday education curricula. The course will cover the fundamental and formal elements, the major periods, styles and philosophies, as well as the functions and processes of the humanities and visual and performing arts. This course provides the educator with knowledge on how to effectively employ those creative processes through collaboration, communication, cooperation, and interaction within the classroom. This is an interactive course where the instructor, guest speakers, and students present topics. Knowledge will be applied through small and large group discussions and projects. Students participation requires completion of projects/assignments both during and outside of class. At least one humanities/fine arts field trip will be planned as an integral part of the course.
