The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method

This site contains articles about The Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method, which has been used for over 30 years in having students in K-12 classrooms learn about every subject--including reading, science, history, art, mathematics, and grammar--with real success and pleasure. The Aesthetic Realism method it is based on this principle, stated by educator Eli Siegel--"The world, art, and self explain each other: each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites." When teachers can show their students that the subjects they study are deeply related to their own lives and hopes, these young people love learning, and become kinder.
