The Effect of Learning through the Arts on Transportation Knowledge and Skills of Elementary School Students, University Students and Classroom Teachers - Phase 2

The purpose of this study is to enhance knowledge of geographic concepts, particularly transportation, through the lens of dance and theater. Students and their teachers will gain knowledge through an interdisciplinary approach that combines the teaching of geography with the arts. This project will benefit current and future educators, artists, and geography researchers. The participants will include elementary and middle school students attending schools in Newark, Delaware, their teachers, and University of Delaware students with expertise in the arts and geography. This project will build on the work of the previous grant cycle, by adapting and augmenting curricula for middle school students.
