Description

In this elegantly written, passionately argued book, Fowler presents a convincing case for teaching the arts to all children. He argues that, far from a luxury, the arts are a vitally important part of our society and our schools. Highlighting the crucial effect of the arts on learning, this volume shows how the arts can enliven and extend the entire school curriculum by integrating different subjects in innovative interdisciplinary ways These eighteen compelling essays are a clarion call to action for any teacher, parent, policy maker, or citizen concerned about the fate of the arts in American society and schools.show more

Review quote

Fowler is a superb writer and a convincing one. He is one of the best in the field. The readership of this book will be the zillions of individuals who have worked so hard in recent years to insure that the arts are basic, that arts instruction be evaluated, and that the arts become more visible * Richard Colwell, New England Conservatory of Music *show more
