Governor Sean Parnell has declared March as "Arts Education Month" in Alaska. Take some time this month to integrate the arts into your students' classroom learning experiences. Remember that "the arts" means more than just drawing and painting! Don't forget about simple movement and drama activities, like acting out a scientific process or turning a short story into a readers' theater performance...or musical endeavors such as writing a rap to help students remember a math formula or composing a poem about the life of a historical figure. Make learning memorable for students by integrating the arts!
