Successfully Integrating the Arts In Your Classroom

Instructor: Vincent A. Pope

Saturdays, 9am-5pm | February 22, 29; March 7, 14; April 11

Teachers learn how to successfully incorporate music into their lessons in order to improve outcomes and make learning come alive in their classrooms. Emphasis is placed on the historical periods of western music from the Baroque period through the 21st century. The research presented provides insight into the lives of the great composers and their compositions. We study the political, social, economic and cultural times in which the music was created. Participants learn about the compositional styles of famous figures of the musical periods while listening, viewing and discussing each musical piece. The course also presents a synthesis of research on arts integration in public schools in the United States, and the history of integrating the arts into teaching. Teachers gain knowledge of how the arts can play a vital role in the development of the whole child.

Participants may earn 45 PLU’s or 3 graduate credits from Trinity University.
