Under the different project ideas, the book offers many ways to incorporate other subject areas into the art lesson or, for those who teach other subject areas, to have art projects that enhance their subject matter.
I was encouraged by reading and recognizing areas in which I was right on target for the age level of my students. I also appreciated the constructive suggestions for new opportunites to give my students a better art experience. I can't recommend this book more highly !!
