As a music teacher in a rural middle/high school, I was responsible for an arts curriculum that addressed not just the standards for music, but all the artistic disciplines. This required a great amount of research which was followed by the ultimate challenge; developing inexpensive materials that would reinforce information AND engage my students, many of whom had little exposure to the arts. On sale within this store are some of these materials. They address the National Core Arts Standards. They are teacher-friendly and student-engaging. More importantly, they offer a comprehensive approach that is certain to heighten your students' awareness of the significance and important of the arts.
Teachers who teach music, art, dance and drama have a well kept secret; they teach the best subjects in the building! With roots that have existed throughout history and that represent the spirit by which we create our own legacies, it is no wonder...the World is a Work of the Arts.
