While subjects such as English, mathematics, and social studies are often considered fundamental elements of education, the art disciplines are often overlooked. These disciplines—dance, music, theater, and the visual arts—are also core elements of education (Gelineau, 2004, p. 2).
For the purposes of this task, these art disciplines will be referred to as areas of emphasis.
Write an essay (suggested length of 2 pages) in which you:
A. Describe the four areas of emphasis in art education: dance, music, theater, and visual arts.
B. Summarize the content that could be taught in each of the four areas of emphasis.
C. Provide examples within your essay of specific academic skills that could be taught using each of the four areas of emphasis.
D. Support each of your examples in part C with appropriate citations from experts in the field, in standard APA format, from research literature and other references.
