VALIDITY?

This adds four different platforms of information processing to understand literary, artistic, cultural, and musical expressions of one emotion.

LITERARY RECOMMENDATIONS

Books create warm emotional bonds and improve language and vocabulary skills. Books help one develop critical thinking skills and nourish imaginations. Books stimulate sensory awareness and help one prepare for new situations and learn more about their self.

ART RECOMMENDATIONS 

Art appreciation opens a new world of artistic and cultural expression. Art helps one think about and express ideas. Art helps introduce critical thinking skills as different mediums are explored. One learns how to observe and translate their thoughts into language. Art builds vocabulary and fluency. Art helps one understand multiple perspectives, contexts, and observations.

POETRY RECOMMENDATIONS

Poetry expands cultural awareness and the introduction of new contexts expands one’s universal understanding. Poetry helps boost reading skills by recognizing the same sound in different words. It also can improve spelling. Poetry helps develop vocabulary as words not usually spoken become introduced. Poetry introduces literary concepts such as alliteration, metaphors, and similes. This improves language knowledge, a valuable attribute for interpreting dialogue. 

SONG RECOMMENDATIONS

Music appreciation strengthens learning and memory, raises verbal intelligence, and increases spatial temporal skills. Spatial intelligence helps one visualize how various elements go together. Songs introduce different genres and contexts of musical themes and increase self understanding and cultural awareness.
