Class Description: 
Field experience hours: 30 clock hours in a public or private school setting. The course has three main goals: identifying the meta-cognitive skills inherent in an arts curriculum; investigating models of arts integration; and researching potential texts, art making activities, and classroom activities that support higher order thinking in the arts. Objectives include comparing and contrasting the common elements of written, spoken, and visual language. Journaling serves as a main strategy. By the conclusion of this course, students understand the many correlations between visual arts and literacy development, and have developed lesson plans that illustrate learning that is unique to the arts classroom. They demonstrate an understanding of visual literacy through the development of strategies for teaching and the creation of lesson plans that incorporate critical thinking skills in arts-based curricula.
