Critical Links: Learning in the Arts and Student Academic and Social Development - The academic and social effects of studies in dance, drama, music, visual arts, and multi-arts are summarized in this compendium of 62 studies. Each art form is addressed in its own chapter, with commentary provided throughout and an essay at the end of each section to fully discuss ramifications of the studies. Essayists and commentators argue that the information presented supports the role of arts in helping to develop critical academic skills, and recommend ways to restructure the curricula and instructional practices.
