Even if you or your students have limited exposure to the arts, this innovative and unique text will help you learn how to teach about the arts and how to instruct your students by learning through the arts. In exploring numerous ways in which the arts (visual, music, dance, and theater) can be integrated throughout the K-8 curriculum and used to teach the subject areas, the text provides a multitude of strategies and examples of learning through classroom activities such as music, dance, and poetry. Arts integration: An Approach to Teaching and Learning in Multicultural and Multilingual Settings, Fourth Edition , reflects contemporary theory and practice and promotes ideas and skills that tap children's propensity for creativity and critical thinking.

 

The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes: revised and current references throughout; a keen focus on assessment and the potential of assessing students' work though arts-based methods; new information concerning the role of visual literacy in learning and especially reading; a strong focus on reading methods through art and theater; a focus on English language learners and the value of using art in capability to achieve and succeed, and a “top-ten” list of the what education needs and has lost sight of over the last decade such as encouraging children's desire to learn, ability to take risks, to improvise solutions, to think creatively, and how the arts can support these attributes.

 

Written for teachers, especially of K-8 students, who wish to learn how to provide an arts curriculum to their students in unique and integrated ways, the text provides a multitude of strategies and examples of learning through classroom activities such as music, dance, and poetry, reflects contemporary theory and practice, and promotes ideas and skills that tap children's propensity for creativity and critical thinking.
