Leila Rosen, Aesthetic Realism associate, writes about this upcoming Public Seminar:
In this thrilling, urgent seminar, NY teachers will present and illustrate the most important news about education: as America’s schools are in turmoil, the Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method succeeds!
You’ll hear teachers give examples of lessons from their own classrooms and describe how students, many of whom had failed year after year, LEARN!—become excited by their subjects, remember facts, pass standard exams, and also become kinder to each other.
This is possible because Aesthetic Realism, founded by the American philosopher, Eli Siegel explains:
“The purpose of education is to like the world through knowing it.”
The speakers at this seminar are: Barbara McClung (elementary science, PS 184 M), Patricia Martone (ESL, PS 134M), Christopher Balchin (social studies, NYC HS, retired), Rosemary Plumstead (science, NYC HS, retired, & current teacher educator), Arnold Perey, PhD (instructor, The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method)
