Product description

From the Back Cover

Transforming the Curriculum through the Arts offers something to every teacher who is concerned about the lack of creativity and imagination in today's curriculum. There is much evidence to suggest that the Arts can make a unique contribution to the lives of young people, their learning and their ability to be creative and imaginative thinkers. Transforming the Curriculum through the Arts supports this idea by presenting the Arts as being central to children's development and as such provides a much-needed framework for arts-enriched learning and teaching strategies across the primary and middle years curriculum. Based on current national and international research, this book presents a well-grounded rationale for embedding the Arts into the curriculum. Key learning areas are addressed in meaningful, relevant, interesting and creative ways. Innovative exemplars, many written and implemented by practising teachers, are clearly demonstrated.
