This eight-part workshop from Annenberg Learner is a great place to start to get ideas on how to integrate the arts into all of your elementary curriculum. Use this as a group project with your co-teachers or do it on your own. Each part is set up the same way with a section on the background of the topic, the learning objectives of the program, a one-hour video with questions to consider, activities and discussion questions to use if using the workshop for professional development, homework options, and supplemental activities. Be sure to check out the section that talks about the workshop because it has links to arts education standards, program summaries, and additional resources.
