This guide reflects on the relationships among learning, knowing, and the arts. The booklet examines the research related to cognitive learning and the arts, while making the case that the arts can help student learning in all aspects of life. Student engagement and persistence improve with an arts-based curriculum and high risk students are helped through the arts. The arts foster understanding of people as individuals and of other cultures as well. The arts are seen as a preparation for students in finding jobs. The booklet concludes with a listing of resources for educators and parents. (EH)
