Abstract

This study discusses the benefits of interdisciplinary instruction in high schools. Interdisciplinary instruction is mainly seen at the primary level. There is also some interdisciplinary instruction in the core subjects at the high school level, but not within the visual arts. To fill this void I developed an integrated literacy curriculum unit for the high school visual arts classroom. This curriculum will follow current Common Core standards as well as ELA and visual arts standards.
