On Thursday, Nov. 6th, from 6:30 PM to 8 PM, there will be a public seminar that will present the answers teachers, administrators, and parents are desperate for: The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method Succeeds, & Answers the Question “Education—What For?” Teachers of math, history, ESL, and science, from elementary through high school, will present classroom lessons showing the powerful success of this time-tested method. This method is what American education needs now!
The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method reaches even the most disheartened students, enabling them to see meaning in their subjects and to learn with genuine excitement. The basis is this principle stated by Eli Siegel, the great American poet and critic and founder of Aesthetic Realism: “The world, art, and self explain each other: each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites.” As students see, through their subjects, that the world is made in a way that makes sense and has honest beauty in it, their anger and cynicism change—not only do they learn successfully, they also become kinder. Students of diverse ethnic backgrounds come to respect and truly care for each other.
