Students Learn & Are Kinder: The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method Succeeds!
Come and hear about the method that will make our schools alive with learning and kindness!
At this thrilling seminar, you’ll hear the most important news about education: the Aesthetic Realism teaching method enables students on every grade level to learn successfully and become kinder! Describing lessons based on this great method, teachers will show how through it students not only pass standardized tests but love knowledge.
The following principles, stated by Eli Siegel, the great American educator who founded Aesthetic Realism, are the basis of this method:
- “The purpose of education is to like the world through knowing it.”
- “The world, art, and self explain each other: each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites.“
As students meet any subject through the Aesthetic Realism teaching method, they feel, “This is about the world and it’s about me!”—and learn with new energy and ease!
Speakers: Zvia Ratz (mathematics, MS 223), Lori Colavito (ELA, 6th grade, Southampton IS), Rosemary Plumstead (science, NYC HS retired, current teacher educator), Patricia Martone (ENL, PS 110), Arnold Perey, Ph.D. (instructor, The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method)
