Abstract

Contemporary art can provide a unique perspective for teaching and learning about pressing global issues. In this article, I describe a school-university partnership that provides an interdisciplinary curriculum, offers professional development for teachers, and hosts field trips for secondary school students. Results from a pilot study on project effectiveness suggest that it successfully promotes interdisciplinary studies, infuses the visual arts into social studies instruction, and deepens understanding of global issues.
