Course Description

Teaches the elementary education student how to incorporate the various visual and performing arts into everyday elementary 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 visual and performing arts, and how to effectively employ those creative processes through collaboration, communication, cooperation, and interaction in the elementary 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 complete assignments both during and outside of class. Class participation, completion of assignments, quizzes, and attendance are all factored into the grading process. At least one field trip will be planned as an integral part of the course.
