Lessons: Interactive-interdisciplinary lesson demonstrations

Teachers interacting

The Mississippi Arts Commission’s arts-focused, interactive, interdisciplinary units weave the arts throughout the teaching and learning process. Suggested instructional strategies incorporate multiple subjects, multiple intelligences, and all the arts disciplines. Students are actively engaged in the learning experiences, with opportunities for using their own creative ideas and imaginations as well as making choices about the way they learn.
