I believe that the whole child should be educated. A balanced instruction with different modalities is necessary for a child to be successful. The physical, creative, and academic child should be educated with researched methods that produce enhanced learning. Lessons should include an objective, modeling, time for the student to practice with guidance, and independent practice with immediate feedback.
