  10. 10. My Final Thoughts <ul><li>I really enjoyed this project! I think the thing I appreciated the most is the attention that was given to the arts. Not just the visual arts (because that is what I teach), but the assigned articles and videos helped support the notion that all areas of the arts are important subjects that can help students learn and understand other curriculum. I know that the unit I have planned will surely hold students attention and provide them with a great opportunity to become more familiar with technology, develop their opinions about art and gain confidence in their artistic ability. </li></ul>
