Arts and literacy connections

In the quote from the Writing Committee NCTE 2004 they wrote: Writers often talk in order to rehearse the language and content that will go into what they write.
It would seem to me that the arts provide another vehicle to rehearse the ideas and content in a more holistic manner. They go on to discuss how important writing is for thinking--thus I would propose that the arts also provide children with opportunities for thought that then can be translated into text. NancyA
