Developing Interdisciplinary Teaching: Ties That Bind

Sandra Bird, Carol Edwards, Valerie A. Dibble, Rick Garner.


This interdisciplinary unit focuses on the artwork of Linda McCartney. Interdisciplinary connections are drawn between art, music, literature, science, mathematics and history.
The units are organized with the following headings:
Criticism –finding meaning in a work of art using description, analysis, and judgment
History – understanding art within the context of culture and history
Aesthetics –philosophical questioning which connects to the nature and valuation of art
Production – creating works of art through the development of skills and ideas.
Unit Goals:
Participants will interpret the meaning, critically analyze three sunprints (Poinsettia on Table, Boy in Mask, and Self Portrait, and two musical selections (Let ‘Em In by Paul McCartney and Wings and Nova by Paul McCartney) and participate in a hands on exploration of the creative processes through an examination of Linda McCartney’s artwork, its ideas and meanings.
