• Collaborating with homeroom teachers are important to student growth. When I collaborate with homeroom teachers to determine what standards they are learning in their class and when, I am able to integrate those standards into my art lessons during the same timeframe. This strengthens, enhances and reteaches what they are learning. The following are just a few examples of how I have integrated core curriculum such as math, science, social studies and language arts.

    Math RT8: Geometric Figures

    PSa) Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines and identify these in two-dimensional figures.

    PSb) Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size, recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

    PSc) Recognize a line of symmetry for a two dimensional figure, identify line symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
