I think you are right there is so much scope for creating classes
that bring art, life and learning closer together. We certainly have
a lot to offer other disciplines. In my school I'm used a bit to
work with other classes particularly the interdisciplinary classes
we offer such as World cultures and American Studies. I've got the
Dorothea Lange talk down pat these days! At some time in the future
I hope I can make these currently one off instances a more permanent
part of the way we do school.
Just for background my school is Hong Kong International School..
I teach in the high school division, around 620 students grades 9 -
12. Our student body is diverse but aproximately 95% go on to
colleges in the US, the rest to Canada, UK, Australia, Japan and a
few stay in Hong Kong.
