Share this post:  
In the last few weeks we shared with you a number of interesting free resources from OER Commons that you can use in your class for a wide variety of instructional materials (see resources on game-based learning and resources for STEAM teachers). Today, we are sharing with you another excellent resource from OER Commons featuring a collection of curated educational materials for art integration in education. ‘Arts integration’, as OER states, ‘is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form with another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.’

Arts integration collection features lessons, course materials, videos, tools and several other materials to use in your class to help students learn and share their learning through various art forms. You can use the tabs in the lefthand side of the website to locate specific resources. You can filter your search by subject, educational standards, material type, language, and educational level. Once you find a resource, click on its title to view a quick synopsis of what it is about , subject area it targets, grade level and a short abstract.
