Polyptych Construction as Historical Methodology: An Intertextual Approach to the Stories of Central Technical School’s Past
Adopting the lens of “new histories” as the basis for the author's inquiry into the institutional legacy of the art program at Toronto’s Central Technical School (CTS), the author created a methodological framework informed by the traditional art form of the polyptych, in which many panels are joined together to show and tell multilayered stories connected to a central theme, to demonstrate visually how stories are interrelated, and to present openings to other stories. This article describes how the author came to see the polyptych as a methodological frame by unpacking its historic roots; by exploring how it operates in contemporary historical research; and by reflecting on how his identity as an artist, teacher, and researcher influences the way he organizes stories within this framework.

The data reveal that core practices of visual arts teaching were evident, in relation to instructional methods, selection and use of resources, in the focus of programming and in approaches to relationships with colleagues and with students. The author has developed four propositions that provide the basis of a practice-based approach to teacher education.

Expanding Our "Frames" of Mind for Education and the Arts
In this article, the author explores the role of the arts in education through the lens of current research in cognitive neuroscience. The article explains that although arts education has largely used multiple intelligences theory to substantiate its presence in classrooms and schools, this relationship has ultimately hindered the field of arts education's understanding of the relationship between the arts, human development, and learning. The author argues that as we strive toward the new theory of whole-mindedness, learners can be freed from their labeling - and so can the arts in education. The arts not only represent a wide spectrum of crafts and domains valued by society in so many ways, but also represent core modalities that align with cognitive constructs in the mind-brain - constructs that are critical to our development as individuals and to a society that has entered a visual revolution.

The Arts and Elementary Education: Shifting the Paradigm
This paper makes the case that study of artworks in the service of developing perceptive and imaginative capacities is critical to K-12 education, and begins in the elementary grades. Recently, as Lincoln Center Institute began to further define and explore its work, its people developed the Capacities for Imaginative Learning, which can be cultivated not only through the study of artworks, but across the curriculum. This paper describes the beginnings of research on the nature and efficacy of the Capacities in fostering learning across the curriculum.
