Dr. Keith Mason Publishes Article About Musicals

New Providence resident Dr. Keith Mason, veteran educator and researcher, has published an article in Teachers Matter Magazine. His article “Musicals Foster Habits of Mind” appears in the latest issue of the New Zealand publication. The 16 Habits of Mind are dispositions that some educators use to help students devise creative solutions to life situations. The article offers examples of specific musicals and how they foster these habits. Dr. Mason has taught world languages and linguistics for 35 years and received his Ph.D. in romance linguistics from the University of Michigan. He is an eight-time recipient of the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Award for Educational Impact. He devotes much of his efforts devising ways to integrate musicals into the curriculum, especially through national and international publications.
