Today’s highlighted Arts Integration technique is using Mirroring.
A drama and dance technique, this is a fantastic way to connect to Common Core Math Standards. Also, it provides students with a way to share understanding using movement, concentration, and problem-solving skills. Embed these 21st century skills within your instruction using this fun and engaging technique. Additionally, I’ve also included a way to assess both the art and the content standard at the end of this video. Enjoy!
