Thoughtful and timely, this unique collection features chapters on each of the major art forms: music, visual arts, drama, dance, and all forms of modern media. Rooted in authentic experiences, the book gives a glimpse into real, exemplary classrooms where the arts are used to bring learning to life. Checklists throughout the book provide handy reminders to key outcomes, and guide teachers in encouragement and assessment.
