Re-Placing the Arts in Education.
Geoghegan, Wendy
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n6 p456-58 Feb 1994
As a dramatic arts professor's experience shows, children's lack of arts education inhibits their ability to communicate ideas spontaneously, respond with feeling, and discern quality from commercial junk. By contrast, a role-playing/research activity with 15 youngsters helped students express themselves creatively and build community in a "tribal," cooperative-learning setting. The arts are basic to human development. (Contains 10 references.) (MLH)
