Berkeley, Anne – International Journal of Education & the Arts, 2011
As a new century unfolds, the "downsizing" and continuing marginalization of the humanities, including theatre, in American higher education correspond to three trends in the academy.

Singer, Marilyn – School Library Journal, 2010
The author knows firsthand that most kids seem to like poetry, however, something amiss happens along the road to adulthood, and many of those same students end up actively disliking poetry or not relating to it. Who can blame them? Poetry is often presented as a rarefied thing that exists only to be analyzed by professorial types or as…

Grobman, Laurie – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2007
Service-learning, an increasingly popular pedagogical strategy in higher education, has been largely ignored in the scholarship of literature teaching.

Vakeva, Lauri; Westerlund, Heidi – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2007
The winning of an artist representing the lowest level of Finnish musical taste during the 2006 Eurovision song contest marks not only the rebellious attitude towards the over-sanitized contest, but it was the result of a new practice--voting by text message. Recently, music-biased schools that were once selective of the music they teach are now…

Bowman, Wayne – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2005
This essay explores the contingency of music's value, and the significant ways that contingency qualifies (or should qualify) our understandings of the utility of instructional method.
