The USBE Arts Integration Endorsement is offered through CITES at BYU. This endorsement attaches to an elementary teaching license. The course builds capacity in 6 art forms as well as in integration of the arts across the curriculum. Participants will experience hands-on engaged learning in dance, drama, media arts, music, visual arts, and literary arts with lessons to use with elementary students. Teachers will improve their own skills in the arts as well as learn pedagogy to teach and integrate the arts.
Participants will demonstrate their learning by creating a portfolio. Full attendance and participation is required.
Per semester, two missed classes will result in loss of a full grade and three missed classes will result in no credit for the class.
