Iamarino, D. (2018/2019, December/January). Engaging Our Most Challenging Students in Fine Arts. Retrieved March 13, 2019

Art/fine art teachers confront the dilemma of whether to include–in plays, concerts, and so on–students whose behavior is disruptive, off-task, or in other ways drags down otherwise good arts performances. Iamarino argues that because the arts are especially helpful to at-risk kids (who are often the very ones with problem behavior), teachers should welcome these kids into arts-related performances, prioritizing participation for all over a perfect product.
