Dr. Paul Baker (1911-2009) was the founder of the Dallas Theater Center (DTC) and founding principal of the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. His unique approach to learning has been in use at DTC and Booker T. Washington since the late 1970s. His daughter and protégée, Robyn Baker Flatt, later applied her fatherÕs unique learning approach and began teaching it as part of the core curriculum in the Dallas public elementary school system 17 years ago. Because Dr. BakerÕs technique employs visual, auditory and kinetic interaction, rather than just passive listening, it has been used successfully to train business leaders, playwrights, architects, novelists and every discipline in between. Dr. BakerÕs methodologies work with the five senses, making it easy to translate the curriculum to groups with various skill levels and language abilities, allowing them to come together to address global issues.
