"Inquiry" was developed in a context of Multiple Intelligences Theory. The
theory (Howard Gardner) clearly addresses the idea that ability in the arts
is no different from gifts and talents in language, math/logic,
interpersonal or intrapersonal communication. In fact, three of the
intelligences: spatial, musical and bodily kinesthetic, have strong
artistic components. Development/education of the whole person does not
happen without the arts. Working in the arts develops/enhances all the
other intelligences if and when our integration is targeted at this goal.
The arts can be an ideal form of assessment in other curriculum areas.
