EDUC 305 Creative Arts (3)

This is an arts education course for elementary education majors. The course is designed to provide pre-service teachers with knowledge of the elements of the performing arts and the visual arts. Today’s public school population is diverse, and teachers encounter heterogeneous groups of students with unique interests, distinctive strengths, special needs, and varied languages. The arts provide a beneficial bridge to assist teachers in connecting with all persons. Not only do the arts enhance the quality and depth of lesson content, each of the arts contains the possibility of reaching students of all levels and backgrounds no matter what their cognitive ability, learning style, or native language. The purpose of this course is to equip students with the necessary tools to implement meaningful and effective arts education into the regular education curriculum.
