Abstract

Although integrating art into instruction is commonly overlooked in elementary education, it is proven to improve student achievement. Pre-service elementary teachers should learn in college how to effectively teach students with arts integration. This literature review will discuss strategies to integrating art into instruction and the benefits to doing so. This study will confirm that arts integration is not frequently taught in education, but teachers are still expected to do so in their own classrooms even though they are not familiar with the strategies. Arts integration is key to student achievement and should be taught and used in the college of education curriculum.
