Building empathy in children through theater By Blair Howell,

Building empathy in children through theater By Blair Howell, | Importance of the arts in education | Scoop.it
The Deseret News assembled a panel to review the many benefits of theater for young audiences in recognition of the World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People.

 

Children learn social skills through theater, and the experience gleaned through both performing and attending theater has been likened to a gym for empathy, because it’s a place where muscles of compassion can be strengthened.

 

=======================

Children learn to understand and engage

with people who are different from them.

Hilary Frambes's curator insight, May 23, 2013 9:00 AM

"Humans obviously have an innate need for art. It is in our DNA. Art separates humans from all other animals. Proof is the threat of being shot to death to see a play, give up playtime and paint walls in darkness in order to quench our cultural thirst."

The Complexity of Greatness: Beyond Talent or Practice

The Complexity of Greatness: Beyond Talent or Practice | Importance of the arts in education | Scoop.it

By Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D. - What is greatness and how do people get there? Is greatness born or made? Is greatness the result of talent or practice? Few other questions have caused such intense debate, controversy, and diversity of opinions. The heights of human accomplishment have always fascinated us, and for good reason.

Related post: Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and Blink, describes in his book Outliers: The Story of Success [audiobook format] some of the personal and social aspects of how people become outstanding, “outliers” on the upper end of intelligence, ability and achievement curves.
