The Use of Music and Creative Movement as a Tool in Language Development in Elementary Children: A Review of Related Literature.
This review examines 20 journal articles and three papers related to the use of music and creative movement to teach language. The paper considers the evidence of a possible shift away from separating these arts from core subjects in the schools. Both historic and experimental field research is assessed in light of ideas found in Broudy (1990), Mead (1996), Pellegrini and Galda (1993), and Goolsby (1984). Advice to the practitioner takes the form of integrated, multi-disciplinary, or multiple intelligence programs by Campbell (1995), Burnaford (1993), Jacobs (1991), and others, including special education programs. Teacher training for integrated programs is evaluated by Leonhard (1990), Burnaford (1993) and Kite, Smucker, Steiner, and Bayne (1994). (Author)
