Imagining New Possibilities with Our Partners in the Arts
Berghoff, Beth; Borgmann, Cindy Bixler
English Education, v40 n1 p21-40 Oct 2007
The authors believe that teachers who have deep knowledge about different arts disciplines can and should work together to create curriculum that fosters inquiry about life itself rather than the mastery of fragmented knowledge and skills. Fine arts teachers know something different from what ELA teachers know. So curriculum that is thoughtfully planned to make the most of multiple arts disciplines enables students to develop deep emotive intensity, intentionality as learners, and useful insights into human experience.
