EDTC 682 - THE WONDER OF DISCOVERY: SCIENCE, MATH AND THE ARTS
This course is proposed to integrate Science and Mathematics instruction with the Arts and Humanities. The artist and the scientist can be seen as living parallel lives, though they express themselves through different media. "The artist asks questions about the ways in which the world can be interpreted and re-created." (Tolley, 1993). Both are investigators on a mission to explore or answer questions. As participants in this inquiry-based course, we will explore the connections between the arts and sciences through hands-on activities, a variety of readings and field trips. Attention will be given to the theoretical frameworks, which support our practices. The use of technology as a connecting tool between these areas of inquiry will be addressed. The course will capitalize on the multicultural and multilingual contexts of our classrooms. We will look at how learning with and through the arts expands appeal of science to a greater variety of diverse learners. Participants will work in groups to create an integrated unit, which they will be able to implement in their own classrooms.
