Inviting School Success: Invitational Education and the Art Class
Hunter, Melanie; Smith, Kenneth H.
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v13 p8-15 2007
It is acknowledged, nationally and internationally, that Invitational Education is actively practised in many schools. However, there is a paucity of articles describing the relationship between Invitational Education and specific disciplines at the elementary and high school levels. As such, this article attempts to address this shortcoming by discussing how and in what manner Invitational Education is applicable to the Art classroom. Applying the principles of Invitational Education, the Art classroom can become a classroom that not only facilitates students in achieving their potential but, in addition, create a positive and enhancing learning environment for all students and teachers.
