Math and Art Curriculum Integration: A Post-Modern Foundation

Available from: JSTOR

Publication: Studies in Art Education, vol. 37, no. 1

Pages: 6-18

See More

Abstract/Notes: This paper suggests a post-modern curriculum reform in art education by examining elements of math and art that are congruent. The paper does not suggest that one discipline or the other is more significant. Three curricular domains are considered: the ideal, the instructional, and the operational by reviewing a range of materials from those generated by philosophers such as Edmund Husserl to those created by educational theorists. A shared web of meaning (Doll, 1993) emerges from the consideration of historic documents and events in both disciplines. Suggested ways to begin to restructure and coordinate math and art curricula include: inspection of the content areas for congruent elements; examination of older curricular models for related theory and materials; and review of the developmental bases for creating operational curricula in both disciplines. Brigham (1989), D'Amico and Ostrander (1940), Hurwitz and Day (1991), and a curriculum by Ware and Hooe (1907) are examined for the math and art coordination. Bruner, Lowenfeld, Piaget, and other developmental theorists' writings about learning in art and geometry are explored. A selection of curricula are inspected for math and art relations. The integration of math and art activities in art classes shows potential for complementary learning in both disciplines.

Games That Art Educators Play: Games in the Historical and Cultural Context of Art Education

Available from: JSTOR

Publication: Studies in Art Education, vol. 55, no. 3

Pages: 241-252

See More

Abstract/Notes: Games have played an important role in modern educational methodologies. Beginning with the work of luminaries like Froebel, Montessori, and Dewey and continuing through the Cold War, the counter-culture movement of the 1960s and '70s, and into the present day, shifts in educational practice can be traced historically using the lens of games, where concepts like play, win strategies, cooperation, and engagement figure prominently in curricular structures. The author investigates how games have been discussed in art education literature, linking how the use of games in art educational environments significantly reflects the sociopolitical contexts of the 20th century.
