INTEGRATING THE ARTS INTO SCIENCE TEACHING AND LEARNING

Kathy Cabe Trundle, Kathryn Green, Maria Shaheen

Abstract


One way to enhance learners’ natural propensity for wonder and
interest in science is to integrate arts into science learning.
Combining arts with science builds on students’ interests in nature
while allowing them the joy and pleasure of artistic expression.
Although educators often discuss integrating the arts into science
learning, empirical support is relatively recent (Gullatt, 2008).
This study synthesizes previous empirical studies and theoretical
literature published on arts integration, how the arts are integrated
into science teaching, and the efficacy of arts integration for
science learning.
