Summary: The purpose of this book is to unify the arts into a holistic concept of aesthetic education for young children. Its aims are: to convince teachers that the arts are for everyone--and essential to the daily curriculum; to show teachers how the arts build children's interest, motivation and learning in all subject areas; to demonstrate how teachers can draw on a wide array of arts resources to enrich their curriculum; and to address the developmental appropriateness o ...show moref arts activities and show how they support the goals of multicultural education.

The Arts in Children's Lives provides many examples of teachers who designed an arts-based curriculum and offers practical, concrete suggestions about evaluating children's growth in key areas of the arts: music and movement, art and craft, play and enactment.

Features:

  • Integrated approach to the arts includes music and movement, art and craft, play and enactment. Illustrates what an integrated, arts-based curriculum looks like and how it functions.
