Brian Kisida: How Field Trips Help Kids

SRN PODCAST - The first gold-standard study of how field trips to an art museum benefit kids finds they expand kids' critical thinking, ability to connect with history, interest in and knowledge about art, and more. These positive effects are three times the size, in several cases, for poor and minority kids. Study coauthor Brian Kisida joins the podcast to discuss "The Educational Value of Field Trips." He discusses the decline of field trips due to decades of emphasis on math and reading test scores, how schools can balance competing demands for art instruction among everything else they have to do, and how, specifically, a free trip to a museum helps children become civilized humans.
