"Student body centered learning: a revolutionary act," draws from the work of educational philosophers and scholars in the fields of student-centered education, brain-compatible learning, and arts education. The reality of an excellent education envisioned for all students has not come to fruition, but it can through a mindful focus by educators of how the bodily tool of knowing can be successfully activated and nurtured to learn best. The thesis presents brain-based research and its application to educational practice both broadly and specifically through a dance program. Student-centered education is designed for students to be actively involved in the process of learning and help students connect themselves to others (past, present, and future) and the world that they live in. Student body centered education reaps fruitful rewards that are more than academic but humanistic.
