Memories are Made of This

Stories of homemade lemon meringue pie, reading the Sunday funny papers, listening to the Lawrence Welk show on the radio, or spotting Burma Shave signs from the family Buick during trips on America's roads and highways are just some of the memories many elders can identify with and recall with fondness.

These are just a few of the topics from the list of programs I completed this summer during weekly storytelling sessions for folks at three adult living and memory care sites in Tucson.

If you want me to provide a program similar to this at an adult living and memory care facility, please contact me for more information.



Integrating the Arts to Learning

It's exciting to see integration of the arts to learning take off in schools across the country. This growing interest seems to be driven by dedicated teachers seeking creative ways to incorporate educational learning standards and core concepts in lesson plans.

By including the arts in projects for specific areas of study, teachers see their students responding with new interest and energy as they solve problems and actively participate in the learning process.

I have found that projects in science, math and social studies are particularly appropriate for arts integration. Student involvement remains high when teachers give kids more opportunities to actively participate in what they are learning, and I am convinced art is the key.
