  • Art Integration and Cognitive Development. Baker, Dawn

    • Abstract: The arts have long been valued for their aesthetic contributions to education, and studies have been conducted to demonstrate their contribution to academic performance in an attempt to justify their inclusion in the curriculum. Art integration involves learning core content subjects (math, reading, language, science, social studies) through the arts (drama, dance, music, visual arts). The focus of this qualitative pilot study was to examine and describe how the arts are integrated with curriculum concepts to promote cognitive development. The theororetical framework was based on standard theory of intelligence and cognitive development. Curriculum concepts were taught through experiential methods and hands-on projects integrated with state Standard Course of Study. Data collection consisted of field ethnographic description and passive observation to identify behavioral correlates of cognitive and intellectual functioning as well as to capture how state standards are integrated within arts-based instruction....

  • Arts Integration: What is Really Happening in the Elementary
           Classroom'. LaJevic, Lisa

    • Abstract: Researching how Arts Integration is practiced in a primary school, this article explores how elementary teachers understand, implement, and experience Arts Integration. Weaving together personal experiences, teacher interviews, focus group sessions, classroom observations, and written texts, I investigate how the arts are often devalued in Arts Integration. Not only are the arts used for decorative purposes, but the arts component in Arts Integration is greatly diluted as well. Addressing what can be done to attend to the problem of devaluing the arts in the classroom, this essay holds implications for teacher education, Arts Integration and curriculum development.

  • Can Architects Help Transform Public Education' What the Sarasota
           County Civic School Building Program (1955-1960) Teaches Us. Paley,
           Nicholas B.

    • Abstract: The Sarasota County School Building Program 1955-1960 is revisited through a detailed examination of how architects and educators collaborated to design an innovative group of public schools that provided opportunities for the transformation of learning space. This multi-dimensioned examination is grounded in an historical contextualization of the school building program; in visual and discursive archival analysis related to four of the schools considered especially notable; and in the integration of contemporary voices of some of the teachers, students, and educational employees who worked in these schools. A concluding section discusses four key lessons of this artistic-educational collaboration that might be fruitful for educators to ponder as they seek to create the kinds of learning environments that optimize students’ educational experience.

  • Can We Use Creativity to Improve Generic Skills in our Higher Education
           Students' A Proposal Based on Non-Verbal Communication and Creative
           Movement. Rodriquez, Rosa Maria; Castilla, Guillermo

    • Abstract: Traditionally, general skills and personal growth have been developed through cognitive processes within academic contexts. Development based on experience may be an alternative route to achieve cognitive knowledge. Enact-learning is based on the biunivocal relationship between knowledge and action. Action is movement. Participants interact with their environment through movement. When participants are aware of this interaction, knowledge is created. First interactions in personal development with the environment are non-verbal. Returning to this concept, we propose work based on creative movement and non- verbal communication. This approach takes into account the multiple intelligences paradigm in order to generate knowledge. This paper seeks to explain a movement development program that has been applied to freshman students studying in different academic areas. The program design is explained in detail. The article demonstrates how the program has helped to develop the participants' body cons...

  • Critical Thinking and School Music Education: Literature Review, Research
           Findings, and Perspectives. Kokkidou, May

    • Abstract: The most up-to-date validations of educational praxis propose that teachers and learners should engage together in a process of understanding life and the world, should share their anxieties and their problematic issues, look for solutions, make plans for action, express themselves creatively and take a critical stance toward every new datum before accepting it as knowledge. For many years, the dominant view was that the study of certain subject areas--and nothing else--was sufficient to promote students’ critical thinking skills. This conviction was overturned by John Dewey, who pointed out that any school subject may promote critical thinking if teachers base their teaching on challenges and issues presented for investigation, as well as encouraging reflection. As music offers the repeated challenge of situations in which there is no standard or approved answer, it can promote critical thinking. This article presents a review of the literature on the definition of critical thinking, points out the importanc...

  • Elementary Teachers Integrate Music Activities into Regular Mathematics
           Lessons: Effects on Students’ Mathematical Abilities. An, Song; Capraro,
           Mary Margaret; Tillman, Daniel A.

    • Abstract: This article presents exploratory research investigating the way teachers integrate music into their regular mathematics lessons as well as the effects of music-mathematics interdisciplinary lessons on elementary school students’ mathematical abilities of modeling, strategy and application. Two teachers and two classes of first grade and third grade students (n=46) participated in the present study. The two teachers designed and implemented music activities as an integrated part of their regular mathematics lessons across five weeks. Results demonstrated that both teachers integrated a variety of music activities with different mathematical content. The music-math interdisciplinary lessons had positive effects on multiple mathematical ability areas.

  • Historic and Ethnic Music Found to Increase Geographic Understanding: A
           Quasi-Experimental Study. Richardson, Ronald; Brouillette, Liane

    • Abstract: This article summarizes a quasi-experimental study, which demonstrated that integration of historic and ethnic music into the American history curriculum may lead to increased knowledge of the cultural and physical geography of the United States as well as enhanced student engagement. An experiment (n=215) conducted with eighth grade students investigated the effect that implementing supplementary music history workshops had on student attitudes and understanding of geographic concepts. Two instruments were used as pre-post tests: the Standards-Based Geography Test, Intermediate Level, from the National Council for Geographic Education and the Test of Geography-Related Attitudes. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) showed that students in the treatment group showed greater growth in geographic knowledge (effect size=.854) and more positive attitudes toward geography (effect size=.569).

  • The Mindful Physician and Pooh. Winter, Robin O

    • Abstract: Resident physicians are particularly susceptible to burnout due to the stresses of residency training. They also experience the added pressures of multitasking because of the increased use of computers and mobile devices while delivering patient care. Our Family Medicine residency program addresses these problems by teaching residents about the mindful practice of medicine. We utilize A. A. Milne’s classic children’s books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, along with Benjamin Hoff’s The Tao of Pooh to explain Dr. Ron Epstein’s four habits of mindfulness: attentive observation, critical curiosity, beginner’s mind, and presence. We also use video clips from two Disney movies, The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh and A Day for Eeyore as well as Kenny Loggins’ song, House at Pooh Corner. With Winnie-the-Pooh’s help, residents learn how to become more mindful physicians by incorporating Epstein’s four habits of mindfulness into their daily practice.

  • My Body, My World: Illness and Identity in Alice Walker’s "Beauty: When
           the Other Dancer is the Self". Kerr, Lisa

    • Abstract: Writing Center faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina teach humanities courses in which we include literary texts that are not ostensibly “about health care” to introduce to students how unique an illness narrative can be—to challenge, in fact, preconceived notions student may have about what “counts” as a healthcare narrative. One narrative we teach is Alice Walker’s “Beauty: When the Other Dancer is the Self." Walker’s account provides opportunities to examine how injury and illness can affect one over the course of a lifetime, contributing to the formation and constant renegotiation of identity from childhood to adulthood. This paper describes the method by which we have taught Walker’s story to engage students on these topics.

  • Poetic Praxis: Engaging Body, Mind, and Soul in the Social Foundations
           Classroom. MacKenzie, Sarah K.

    • Abstract: Across the space of this paper I seek to share a particular attempt to holistically engage students enrolled in a Social Foundations of Education course, in the process of de(con)structing knowledge, through the work of collectively creating found poetry. I do not seek to show right pedagogical practice; rather, it is my hope that this paper may offer a glimpse of the possibilities that exist when we embrace arts-informed epistemological practices that acknowledge the whole student, engaging the mind/body/soul in praxis, through acts of fluid co-creation and (re)construction of knowledge.

  • Rocking your Writing Program: Integration of Visual Art, Language Arts, &
           Science. Poldberg, Monique M.; Trainin, Guy; Andrzejczak, Nancy

    • Abstract: This paper explores the integration of art, literacy and science in a second grade classroom, showing how an integrative approach has a positive and lasting influence on student achievement in art, literacy, and science. Ways in which art, science, language arts, and cognition intersect are reviewed. Sample artifacts are presented along with their analysis to show how students learn in an integrated unit that incorporates visual art as a key component. While we recognize the importance of art as a unique domain, this research demonstrates how integration of visual art, literacy, and science content creates an effective curriculum benefiting all students.

  • The Scientific Method and the Creative Process: Implications for the K-6
           Classroom. Nichols, Amanda J; Stephens, April H

    • Abstract: Science and the arts might seem very different, but the processes that both fields use are very similar. The scientific method is a way to explore a problem, form and test a hypothesis, and answer questions. The creative process creates, interprets, and expresses art. Inquiry is at the heart of both of these methods. The purpose of this article is to show how the arts and sciences can be taught together by using their similar processes which might improve student engagement. Arts-integration research from the literature is discussed. Both the scientific method and the creative process are described through examples of scientists and artists in different areas. Detailed learning activities are presented that demonstrate how both the scientific method and the creative process can be implemented into the classroom. Two activities are appropriate for elementary-aged children, grades K-3, while the other activities are geared for intermediate school-aged students, grades 4-6. All activities are written where eithe...

  • Art of Analysis: A cooperative program between a museum and medicine.
           Jacques, Andrew; Trinkley, Rachel; Khandelwal, Sorabh; Stone, Linda;
           Hudson, William A; Tang, Richard

    • Abstract: Art of Analysis (AoA) is a cooperative effort of the Ohio State University College of Medicine (OSUCOM) and Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) aimed at medical students who are participating in learning communities, groups formed in pre-clinical medical student education to emotionally support and encourage students through the arduous process of medical training, to develop critical thinking skills; engender empathy; increase tolerance for ambiguity; build team problem solving abilities; and consider multiple perspectives through the observation of artwork. While several medical education institutions in the past have described similar programs, AoA uses a unique critical thinking strategy called “ODIP” (Observe, Describe, Interpret, Prove). Group participants include medical students, the learning community faculty (faculty members from OSUCOM) and CMA educators who facilitate and direct the AoA program. The groups set expectations before the program, emphasizing the goals and objectives of the program. Students ...

  • Beyond Comfort Zones: an experiment in medical and art education.
           Auerbach, Kelli; Baruch, Jay M

    • Abstract: Practicing medicine and creating art are both informed by observation and perception, yet how artists and doctors view the world and their place in it might be quite different. By bringing two populations together – RISD students and Warren Alpert Medical School students – into one experimental course, “No Innocent Eye: Knowledge and Interpretation in Art and Medicine,” art and medical students were asked to engage in topics and work with skills and processes that might not be considered typical fare in art and medical school curriculums, but which we hope gave doctors-in-training creative ways of rethinking medical practice and patient care, and presented art students with new conceptual and material tools to push their art-making.

  • Exploring Professionalism in Undergraduate Medical and Dental Education
           through Forum Theatre. Brett-MacLean, Pamela; Yiu, Verna; Farooq, Ameer

    • Abstract: Forum Theatre (FT) was created by Brazilian theatre director Augusto Boal (1985) as an approach for promoting dialogue between the audience and those performing on stage for his “Theater for the Oppressed.” FT offers an accessible, interactive approach to exploring challenging topics and situations.  In FT, a short scene is performed.  It is then replayed again and again with audience members invited to intervene and offer different options for addressing various aspects of the problematic situation.  Originally directed to helping people address and transform oppressive conditions that characterized their lives, FT has evolved and found expression in many different communities and contexts, including health professional education.  Inspired by David Diamond’s (2008) “Theatre for Living” model (which approaches living communities as a complex, living entities), we introduced FT in the “Introduction to Medicine & Dentistry” (DMED 511) course offered as part of the Undergraduate Medical Education program in...

  • Generation to Generation: The Heart of Family Medicine. Winter, Robin O

    • Abstract: According to the American Board of Family Medicine, “The scope of family medicine encompasses all ages, both sexes, each organ system and every disease entity.” What makes the seemingly daunting task of practicing family medicine possible is that family physicians learn to utilize similar clinical reasoning for all of their patients regardless of age, and that they care for patients in the context of their families. In our work with residents, we utilize a multimedia presentation that incorporates poetry by Shel Silverstein, the song, He Was Walking Her Home, by Mark Schultz, and the Pixar/Disney movie, Up, to help teach these concepts and demonstrate how caring for multiple generations simultaneously enriches the care of each generation.

  • An Open Letter to our Future Students in “Narrative and the Caring
           Professions”. Osmond, Chris; Cumbie, Sharon Ann; Dale, Michael;
           Hostetler, David; Ivory, James; Phillips, Deborah; Reesman, Karen

    • Abstract: A group of nursing, social work, education, and English faculty worked together for a year to explore how literature experiences designed for medical education might enhance professional preparation in their fields and address their common dilemmas of caregiving. The resulting insights reveal the ways in which adaptations of narrative medicine models offer benefits for students in these “caring professions.” They also indicate the promise of interdisciplinary reading experiences among students from these fields and suggest how these frameworks might address their common challenges of burnout and erosion of empathy in early clinical experience. This “open letter” to future students who will participate in an interdisciplinary reading group describes the challenges facing the professions of nursing, social work, and education, and explores the ways that doing narrative work together will prepare students to meet them.

  • Teaching Softly in Hard Environments: Meanings of Small-Group Reflective
           Teaching to Clinical Faculty. Whiting, Ellen; Wear, Delese; Aultman, Julie
           M; Zupp, Laurie

    • Abstract: A vast literature exists on teaching reflection and reflective practice to trainees in small groups, yet with few exceptions the literature does not address the benefits of these interactions to faculty. Like multiculturalism or cultural competency, the literature assumes that faculty have themselves “achieved” these propensities and that trainees are the only recipients of the benefits of such inquiry. One of the noticeable exceptions is Arno Kumagai and colleagues’ article, “The Impact of Facilitation of Small Group Discussions on Psychosocial Topics in Medicine on Faculty Growth and Development,” which found that small group teaching stimulated not only students’ personal and professional growth, but also that of the faculty themselves. Our intent is to continue and enlarge the questions posed in this important article. Specifically, this inquiry focuses on the meanings that clinical faculty derive from teaching medical students in discussion- and reflection-driven small group formats. Why do faculty l...

  • The Use of Narrative in Medical Education. Arjmand, Susan

    • Abstract: A course was designed for medical students in which literature and writing exercises were used to promote reflection on cross-cultural patient encounters. Students were encouraged to consider Kleinman’s principles of open-ended questioning as the basis for enhancing these patient conversations and were prompted to develop skills in close reading of texts, specifically recognition of the reader’s response to narrative, understanding of point of view, and recognition of the impulse to create story, or plot. Transcriptions of class discussion and material from written essays were used to inform the instructor’s understanding of learners’ progress. This study may offer a new conceptual lens for viewing ways in which cultural competency and other features of physician-patient communication may be taught using narrative skill training. When anchored to exercises in reflective writing, student learners develop a framework with which to view and interpret their patient stories.

  • Using Theater of the Oppressed in Nursing Education: Rehearsing to be
           change agents.. Love, katie l

    • Abstract: Theater of the Oppressed (TO) is used in a variety of setting and communities to explore ways of recognizing and overcoming oppressions. The main purposes of TO is to become more critically aware of oppressions and power relationships, to rehearse alternative solutions for real life, and to ultimately to be able to make change for social justice. This article describes the use of TO in a baccalaureate nursing education classroom as a way to rehearse for real life situations, confronting the status quo, experience positive communication techniques for empowered thinking, and practice their role as change agents within the healthcare arena. The methods of "cops in the head," "forum theater," and "image theater" will be described along with a discussion of how these methods were used in a community health nursing course. Although the examples provided here are specifically for a nursing class, they could be used in any health related field with potential to transform healthcare and ultimately to improve the care...

  • Using Theater to Increase Empathy Training in Medical Students. Reilly, Jo
           Marie; Trial, Janet; Piver, Debra E.; Schaff, Pamela B.

    • Abstract: : Developing and nurturing empathy in medical trainees has been recognized as an essential element of medical education. Theater may be a unique instructional modality to increase empathy training. Methods: A multi-disciplinary team developed a theater workshop for first year medical students.  Through the use of theater games, art images and reflective writing, the workshop was designed to enable students to: 1) consider the concept of empathy within the context of theater; 2) experience art, theater and narrative as reflective tools to build empathy /self-reflection. The workshop was evaluated by students through a written questionnaire. It was evaluated by faculty and actors though narrative dialogue. The faculty and actors shared their perceptions about 1) students’ ability to demonstrate empathy through a written narrative based on an art image;  2) students’ use of reflection as part of empathy awareness; 3) students’ ability to demonstrate awareness of body language and emotion as diagnostic an...

  • The Value of Story in Medicine and Medical Education: A Chance to Reflect.
           Clarke, Linda E.; de Jong, Jennifer D.

    • Abstract: While JJ was a medical student, the authors worked on a two-part study of the stories of “good death” as they were told by palliative care patients, caregivers, physicians and nurses. In this personal reflection, de Jong (JJ), now a family practitioner and Clarke (LC), an artist and educator in medicine and health care, consider the value of such “story work” in the development of key skills for a physician. While this is the experience of two individuals, the conclusions have relevance for those engaging in story work within the context of medicine, medical education and the health care community.

  • Whither (Whether) Medical Humanities' The Future of Humanities and
           Arts in Medical Education. Shapiro, Johanna

    • Abstract: This special issue of Journal for Learning through the Arts focuses on the uses of literature and arts in medical education. The introductory article addresses current debate in the field of medical humanities (MH), namely the existential question of what is the purpose of integrating humanities/arts in medical education; and then examines how the submissions included in the issue illuminate this conversation.  Specifically, I frame the discussion as critiques of models of acquiescence in medical education contrasted with calls for medical educators employing the humanities to adopt models of resistance. After deconstructing some of the arguments against models of acquiescence, and examining both examples of resistance and acquiescence included in this issue, I conclude that the dichotomy, while in some ways providing valuable insight into the various ways humanities and arts can be understood within a medical context and the various uses to which they can be put in medical education, nevertheless does not do...
