Theater Study is an Audience Favorite

TheatreSquared’s performances of Hamlet and A Christmas Carol were a hit with the student audiences that saw them.  And apparently our study of what students learned from those performances was a hit with the readers of Education Next.  It was the second most viewed article in Ed Next during 2014 despite coming out toward the end of the year.  This follows on our study of the effects of field trips to an art museum earning the #1 spot as the most read article in Ed Next during 2013.

Students are very interested in these cultural experiences.  The education policy community is very interested in these studies.  Now if only policymakers, administrators, and foundations showed similar levels of interest.
