Austin Peay State University (APSU)

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – A couple of the grade school teachers held their hands overhead, their fingers dancing at Austin Peay State University. Three other teachers squatted, kneeled or sat, waving their arms back and forth slowly.

In their slow dance, the teachers emulated stars twinkling over slowly moving mountains. In doing so, they were practicing arts integration, an approach to teaching various subjects, such as science, through art, such as dance.

More than 20 local school teachers learned arts integration techniques to help them keep students engaged in learning the arts, such as dance, while learning other subjects, such as science. (Brian Dunn)
