What is Integrated Arts?

The iRAP program begins with a compulsory “Integrated Arts” ALC101 course taken in grade 9 or 10.  This course integrates two or more of the arts (dance, drama, media arts, music, and visual arts), giving students the opportunity to produce and present integrated art works created individually or collaboratively. Students will demonstrate innovation as they learn and apply concepts, styles, and conventions unique to the various arts and acquire skills that are transferable beyond the classroom. Students will use the creative process and responsible practices to explore solutions to integrated arts challenges.

Gr. 9 Integrated Arts – ALC1OR

Students will use the creative process and responsible practices to explore solutions to integrated arts challenges.

How ALC101 will lead integration?

  • Exploring elements between the Arts disciplines through the creative process;
  • Units of study may include – What is Art? / Art and You / Art and Us / Art and the World;
  • CPT will explore curriculum concepts from other curriculum areas through the ARTS;
  • Students will curate an art exhibit to showcase these learning connections;
  • All assessment and evaluation will be completed by ALC101 teacher;
  • Example integrated assignments – Remembrance Day

    Our goal is to promote conversations about learning and initiate integration through student voice bringing a ‘grassroots’ feel back to our program.
