1) What contribution can high-quality learning in and through the arts make to:
- Engaging and challenging all students?
- Promoting safety, cultural competence, and positive social relationships in the learning environments of children and youth?
- Preparing the adaptive, innovative thinkers our economy and society need?
I don't have the answers to these questions, but I hope to contribute by helping to frame the issues, review the literature, highlight connections, and tell the story that I see unfolding in my work with educators and arts organizations.
I hope this blog will go from capturing my daily thinking and reading about these issues to a more structured examination of the questions.
