Research Review: Arts in the Classroom
Hornbacher, Judy, Ed.; Toft, Joanne C.
Teaching Artist Journal, v6 n4 p305-310 Oct 2008
As teaching artists, teachers, and arts administrators, the authors are constantly looking for signs of spring: evidence that there is a growing understanding of the role artists have to play in the education of children; proof that teachers, if trained well, will see that role and wish to incorporate it into their classrooms. "Arts in the Classroom", reviewed here, is such a sign. It was a small project but had a significant impact in a very short amount of time, leading one to ponder how little effort, in the great scheme of things, it takes to open the eyes of teachers to the wonder of the arts.
