Product description

From the Back Cover

This novel text engages future teachers in the processes of creativity to encourage creative growth and participation in their classrooms.  It emphasizes process, rather than product, so teachers learn that once they tap into their own creativity they are better equipped to help children participate in the creative process.

New and expanded content in the fourth edition includes:

  • National standards for drama, visual arts, dance, and music and examples of how teachers can address them
  • A new Families feature in each chapter explaining how families can support children's creative activities at home
  • Expanded and deepened multicultural content in the prose and in exploring the arts through a multicultural context
  • Children's literature and recommended books in each chapter for integrating literature and the arts
