Where's the Revolution?
Hathaway, Nan E.; Jaquith, Diane B.
Phi Delta Kappan, v95 n6 p25-29 Mar 2014
Leading education thinker Sir Ken Robinson says transformation is essential to bring creative thinking into schools and recommends three major changes: Dispense with subject hierarchy, focus on curricular disciplines instead of subjects, and elevate personalization. Change will come when students take ownership of their learning to fit their needs and interests. This is already happening in progressive art classrooms across the nation. School systems seeking greater creativity can learn from these art educators who are carrying forward the Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) grassroots movement.
