Integrating the arts with flair.
"Every classroom learns better if the arts are part of the learning process. That transcends private school, public school, economics," said Daft at a recent series of workshops in Greenville.
Daft specializes in using the arts to teach math, language arts, social studies and science. Students of the educators she's trained have learned about negative and positive numbers by dancing along a number line, and have combined singing with poetry composition.
Daft says the largest barrier to arts integration is classroom management, as students can become so excited about what they are learning that teachers struggle to manage the classroom enthusiasm.
