Can anyone suggest books about it?
I am working on a Masters of Liberal Studies. We started by reading ancient Homer's Illiad and Greek Philosophy, then Roman, pre-Christian, Christian writing... philosophy, literature and political theory. I think it's great for my sense as an artist to shore up a sense of the history of western culture.
Is that the kind of connectedness this new way of teaching is supposed to include? It sounds like a very old way of teaching.

It affects art ed greatly. Art is supposed to support the spiral curriculum of
culture, math, etc. Core gives art masterpieces to be taught (by you or homerm).
Core teaches appreciation and knowledge of images. your job is to interweave
your mandatory curriculum into theirs, i.e. Egyptian culture or crossing the Delaware with line
or media. It is a different way of teaching. k
