Philosophy of the Unified Arts
The role of Unified Arts in the Epping School District is to integrate academic skills and concepts into life and culture. Students who participate in Unified Arts courses are exposed to a variety of experiences that will help shape a more complete, well-rounded student ready for college, career and life. The Unified Arts offer students a vehicle to explore their gifts and talents, and provide the "hands on" practical implementation and enrichment of their education.
District Competencies for Unified Arts
Communication – Students will demonstrate the ability to communicate in meaningful and appropriate ways within the context of their own unique experiences, values, and perspectives.
Experiences – Students will understand that the processes of creating and/or performing work are essential to the life experience of the individual and the community.
Global Connections – Students will understand that the unified arts have a fundamental connection with cultures and history.
Evaluation – Students will understand that the products of the unified arts are created to convey a point of view realistically, abstractly, or digitally, and as a result can be critically and constructively evaluated.
Integration – Students will understand that the unified arts integrate with other content areas and these interdisciplinary connections enhance their experience.
