Overview

Arts with the Brain in Mind

While it's true that arts education can help boost test scores in other disciplines, here's a book that explains the most important reason to include the arts in schooling: brain development.

Using the latest research on the brain and learning, Jensen presents the definitive case for making the arts a core part of your curriculum and integral to teaching in every subject and classroom. Learn how to use musical, visual, and kinesthetic arts to increase opportunities for more students to learn, enhance their thinking, and make classrooms more positive and inclusive. Teaching tips throughout the book offer easy and practical ways to incorporate the arts into every grade level.

This book is one every art educator should own and read frequently. Written by a non-art person, it compiles all the recent brain research into one document as the material relates to the various forms of artistic expression: visual, musical, physical (dance), and dramatic. Eric Jensen writes in a style that is easily read and understood, without a lot of technical terms. It is enjoyable to read. It should also be required reading for all administrators and board members.
