1992 NCTE Annual Business Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky
Proposers of this resolution noted that the arts and the language arts share common ground. Both literature and the arts, they said, stem from aesthetic experience, and the performing and nonperforming arts are closely related. Be it therefore
Resolved, that the National Council of Teachers of English support the arts as a vital part of education at all levels;
that NCTE urge teachers of English language arts to work with teachers of other arts in ongoing cooperative, cross-disciplinary projects and programs;
that NCTE establish and maintain an arts strand in future NCTE convention programs; and
that NCTE develop and maintain communication with professional arts education associations to foster better articulation and integration of programs, pre-K through college.
