the Arts

The arts represent an outlet of expression, that is usually influenced by culture and which in turn helps to change culture. While in general, the arts refer all creative outlets, like writing and cooking, the arts in schools normally refers to the performing arts. Major constituents of the performing arts include the worlds of Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts. OPEN NH courses in the arts are aligned to the National Core Arts Standards and are framed by artistic literacy as described in the philosophical foundations, lifelong goals, and artistic processes. Integration of the arts into a wide range of content areas ensures a rigorous, engaging and relevant arts education for all students.

Using the arts is a way to engage learners, enliven the curriculum, expand thinking, approach creative problem solving, and support all content areas in an effort to meet the diverse needs of students. In this 7 week course you will learn about effective practices in arts integration and how to apply such practices to your own teaching. Current research supports arts integration and New Hampshire has examples of several models that effectively implement arts integration in the curriculum of schools around the state.

Online Course Model

Online Course Orientation
All OPEN NH courses begin with an optional face-to-face orientation, allowing participants to become familiar with course login procedures and overall course requirements. Orientation to the course continues online during the first week, so that participants become familiar with course expectations and get acquainted with their instructor and fellow classmates.

Online Content and Practice
Following the orientation, courses continue for six weeks, emphasizing theory-to-practice applications. Course work includes online discussions, reflections, readings, and projects. Course participants receive a certificate of participation that may be applied to their individual professional development plans.
