Bringing Art into the Elementary Classroom
Publication Date 1 Jan 2000
OverviewThis text shows prospective teachers practical ways to create classroom environments in which children become artists as they also become readers and writers. Based on the mind-expanding work of Howard Gardner and other teacher-researchers on the relationship between art and literacy, this book emphasizes the integration of all the arts into the elementary curriculum. It also addresses the immediate need of pre-service teachers for clear practical advice on how to set up effective art programs.
