An Occurrence at Glen Rock: Classroom Educators Learn More about Teaching and Learning from the Arts
Amorino, Joseph S.
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n3 p190-195 Nov 2008
Glen Rock Public Schools in New Jersey transformed instruction by enabling teachers to discover the richness of incorporating various aspects of the arts into their classroom work. In a deeper vein, Glen Rock teachers learned that art should not be peripheralized because the arts have unique potential as vehicles that can open new ways of thinking for teachers and for students. If the full measure of one's intellect encompasses sensory, emotional, kinesthetic, and cognitive processes, and if academia is defined by intellectual engagement, then the arts must be classified as profoundly intellectual and academic subjects indeed.
