From the Paper:

"As a response to Gardener's theories of multiple intelligence many educators now believe through observation and research that the arts are an avenue that can precipitate learning in a diverse enough way to reach all types of learning styles and students coming from diverse backgrounds, with diverse intelligences. With the growing diversity in the California schools and the stress to create inclusive or mainstreamed classrooms the need to address this issue will become increasingly important, and answering that question with a multifaceted arts driven curriculum may enhance the skills of all learners."
