Art helps us comprehend both ourselves and the world around us by revealing us the relationship between them.
Last week I've talked about the value of ''Emotional engagement in learning'' and how teachers needs to help their students connect what they already know with the thing they are trying to learn. By emboldening tenacity and creating a positive learning experience students will be more likely to participate in the learning endeavors to come. Ultimately, cognition and passion will come with the understanding of this connection and the experience of this new knowledge through action.
We must be careful not to kill this passion.
Keeping a schedule will allow us to find some time away from work to recharge our energy and look back at what we've accomplished. This approach will show us all the small steps that have gradually built from our previous knowledge onto the new one and what has made the connection between them. Comprehending the learning process will motivate us to repeat this connection in our art in order recreate this experience in others.
The quote I want to share this week is by American psychologist Jerome Bruner: ''The experience of art nourishes itself, so that having sensed connectedness one is impelled to seek more of it.''
I encourage you to share your thoughts in the comments below.
