Many changes and major revisions in this fifth edition provide a comprehensive look at the creative arts and how the arts can expand our understanding of the teaching and learning process.

 

Inclusion of Mathematics, Science, Social studies and the Language Arts Standards.

Each of the content chapters presents the national standards for mathematics, science, social studies and language arts and describes how these standards can be integrated into visual and performing arts lessons.  This feature will help students and instructors answer the question: “How do I include the creative arts within a standards driven curriculum?”  This new feature will enable students and instructors to address all of the national content areas standards in ways that are appropriate for young children.

 

Curriculum Planning, Lesson Plans and Arts Integreation.

The chapters on music, dance and movement, visual arts and theatre (drama) presents strategies for developing lesson plans to encourage using the arts as an all encompassing arena for including mathematics, science, social studies and the language arts within a creative arts curriculum.

 

Assessment.

Assessment procedures are presented and described to provide students and instructors with concrete ideas that will provide children opportunities to demonstrate their capabilities in a fair and accurate manner in an authentic setting that is integrated into the instructional process.

 

Theory Into Practice: Implications for Teaching.

These sections take a critical look at theory and presents ideas for linking theory to practice. Suggestions are provided for developing activities based on the developmental level of the children.   This feature demystifies what can be abstract theoretical ideas and describes theory in terms of children’s active learning modalities.

 

Where Does a Teacher Get Ideas for Creative Arts?

From the Publisher:

With its clear emphasis on the creative process, the new Second Edition of this innovative text shows future teachers how to tap into their own creativity in order to foster children's creative growth. Grounded in research and theory, coverage supports a constructivist notion of the creative arts and moves students away from prescribed activities and projects in favor of encouraging the creative potential of all children.

From the Back Cover:

This text conveys the importance of the process rather than the product of creativity in the arts. It encourages preservice teachers to tap into their own creativity so that they are better equipped to help children find ways to express themselves creatively and therefore develop to their own potential. 

 

Recurring chapter features in this text include encouraging family involvement in the creative arts at home, multicultural art ideas, integrating children’s literature in the arts, developmentally appropriate practice, students with special needs, national standards for the four creative arts, and personal and professional development in the arts.

 

Key Additions in This Edition:

  • Methods for Integrating the Creative Arts into Content Areas. To answer the question, “How do I include the creative arts within a standards-driven curriculum?” new sections in the creative arts chapters support preservice teachers in addressing all of the national content areas standards (language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies) in ways that are appropriate for young children.
  • Lesson Planning.  The chapters on music, dance and movement, visual arts and theatre (drama) present strategies for developing integrated lesson plans.
  • Assessment Suggestions. Assessment procedures are presented and described to provide concrete ways for children to demonstrate their capabilities authentically.
