Teaching Emotional Intelligence
Educators should learn to use arts for developing emotional intelligence in students because it offers a unique avenue for self-expression and empathy. Arts, such as visual arts, music, and drama, enable students to explore their emotions and those of others, enhancing their understanding and management of feelings. This promotes effective communication and interpersonal skills, essential for success in various aspects of life. It also cultivates creativity, critical thinking, and self-awareness. Educators equipped with these tools can nurture emotionally intelligent, well-rounded individuals who excel academically and socially, contributing to personal growth and a more empathetic, harmonious society.
