I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ have attached the textbook and a slideshow for reference if needed.
Also, the research can just be typed as slide notes in the PowerPoint. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
Instructions:
On your own, research a sub-topic within the larger discussion of “Why Teach the Arts”. Examples of sub-topics include, but are not limited to:
-Brain research that supports arts integration
-Benefits to “core” content areas when arts are integrated
-How arts integration empowers children in their preferred learning styles, and/or multiple intelligences
-An area of particular interest to YOU
Once you have sufficiently researched your sub-topic, create a 2-4 minute narrated presentatio​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n explaining what you learned in the research. The video may be a short slides presentation with narration (slides presentation through PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Prezi; narration using a program like, Kaltura, which is embedded into this course. While you don’t have to appear on camera, you DO have to speak and explain what you learned in your research of the sub-topic. In your presentation, focus on what you learned in your research, and why this information is relevant or important to the conversation of why we should include arts integration. Simply summarizing the research does not fully satisfy the purpose of the assignment – the critical piece of the video presentation is to provide the WHY from your​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ perspective.

In order to gain a perspective of the rapid changes in early-twentieth-century society and their direct relation to the plethora of art movements, I would like you to pick one year from 1900–1920. Research noteworthy inventions, world events, and discoveries from that year and tell how you think they influenced the art movements of the 20th century (Be specific- give examples). You will also have to research the art movements of that time.

Research noteworthy inventions, world events, and discoveries from that year and tell how you think they influenced the art movements of the 20th century (Be specific- give examples). You will also have to research the art movements of that time. Don’t tell me each invention for example like, the vacuum cleaner made cleaning faster so artists had more time to work! Think overall what was happening! Look at everything from that year and what did it do to the hearts and minds of people and artists. How did all these things affect artists and their creations? Think about the theories of those art movements and were they developed due to the changes in that year. Share your findings in an approximately three-five minute video report. You must record the screen. Write a script and include it in the video in writing. You can pause the recording to take a break, close a picture, open another one, etc.

Topic/Title—“In Dreams: Surrealism and the Human Condition”
The 20th century bore witness to the emergence of a trend towards art that explored the human condition—art that explored human psychology with bizarre, irrational, and nonsensical ideas and images. Such ideas and images are usually associated with our dreams and nightmares (our subconscious experiences). You will write an essay on this trend. To do so, you must follow these criteria:

You must explain Surrealism’s artistic agenda and pay particular attention to what the Surrealists intended to say with their art. You must also explain why the strange works of art produced by the Surrealists were timely—what they said about culture and society during the early 20th century.
