Music and art have been cut back or cut out of our our public schools curriculums because of budget cuts and a greater emphasis on standardized testing in the academic areas of math, reading and science. Is this a mistake? Can arts education enhance learning and help students excel in academic subjects? Music educator and doctoral researcher Ron Watson discusses his research on the effects on integrating music into academic subjects.
This show is straight from the heart! As a creative person whose passion is the arts, I find the cutbacks in arts education in recent years have created a void in the production of cultured people in our society. Many years ago, fresh out of kindergarten, I was immersed in the arts. Encouraged to write. Exposed to classical music, theatre, museums, etc. It was as important as math and history. As I grew older and faced the problems of the day, or felt in despair it was knowing that by simply picking up a pencil and writing a poem, drawing a picture, dancing, or by singing a song that I could turn things around. That for a time I had the power to change something.
Now as an adult, I know that one can take that to the next level and beyond and feel empowered to question, to seek answers, and to ponder change.
School is about to begin and we have to think seriously about making Arts Education mandatory to ensure the future and empowerment of our youth. Guest, classically trained singer, Janie Braxton and I will discuss the state of Arts Education, and compare ourexperiences with Arts Education; she as a student in Detroit public schools, and I as a student in NYC public schools.
After such a wonderful show on this topic, which originally aired on Labor Day, I've invited Janie Braxton back and another past guest Stephen Wilson Jr., from Arts Ed organization TWW Inc., to talk more about how the Arts have impacted our lives personally, and what we can do to pick up the slack and help expose the Arts to our youth. I have recently decided to reach out to endangered Black and Latino male youth to let them partake in working on my upcoming projects, and take them to cultural events in and effort to empower them through cultural immersion.
Through my non profit fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, I will be able to accept tax deductible donations of tickets, and or funds in this endeavor. If you'd like to help please make your contribution at:

The Don S. McClure Show - Words! How we use them
Words! How We Use Them
A single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.
To choose and use particular words in order to say or write (something) of value or opinion
To describe a person or subject.
To explain your feelings either good or bad in your eyes.
There is an old saying Choose your words (Carefully) for they may be your last.
How many times have we used words to express our feelings toward someone?
Words have always been the foundation to give understanding and to write down a lasting memory.
For without words we would have no means of communication between one another.
You can’t express your true love and desire without words.

The Don S. McClure Show Live - Appreciating Your Joy
Your joy is filled with exciting moments that last for a life time.
They are the memories of the great moments that leave an imprint on your mind and heart. That first kiss, that first job, that first project that came to life and you were so proud of what you created.
That first feeling of love between you and someone special that you just could not get enough of them being in your life.
That first apartment or home and of course your first child.
But most important that true joy of being who you are with no boundries.
Being able to express yourself and your feelings and ideas and thoughts.
The joy of spending time with friends and family.
The joy you found in a good book or a movie that you just could not forget the words that were spoken or written on a page.
The joy you felt from a song, that you believed might have been written just for you or your situation.
Once you learn to appreciate the joy in your life, all the things that are not filled with joy will not matter. Because that joy you feel will erase all doubt and place you on the path of believing in self.

Where Art Thou?: Moving from STEM to STEAM
STEM is all the rage and rightly so. The skills our children need to learn regardless of their profession incorporate the skills that are taught in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes. With the emphasis on these studies one has to wonder what has become of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Schools in many cases have squeezed out fine and performing arts in order to make time for all STEM requirements. In the last five years however, many have come to understand, that arts incorporate complimentary processes to those addressed in STEM curricula. Things have started to heat up in moving from STEM to add the arts and move to STEAM.
In this show, we will explore how the arts are integrated into a STEM centered curriculum and provide a vision of how arts can be better integrated to provide learning opportunities for all students.
Join Host Michael Jay and ETT Guests ponder the following:
What are some examples of the process of moving from STEM to STEAM?
What benefits and trade offs are made in the process of incorporating arts into a STEM curriculum?
How prepared are educators to engage learners in learning activities that incorporate the arts?
What can publishers and curriculum developers do to incorporate more STEM into their arts curricula and/or more arts into their STEM curricula?
