This book invites readers to consider the possibilities for learning and growth when artists and arts educators come into a classroom and work with teachers to engage students in drama, dance, visual art, music, and media arts. It is a nuts-and-bolts guide to arts integration, across the curriculum in grades K-12, describing how students, teachers, and artists get started with arts integration, work through classroom curriculum involving the arts, and go beyond the typical "unit" to engage in the arts throughout the school year. The framework is based on six years of arts integration in the Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE). Renaissance in the Classroom: *fully explains the planning, implementation, and assessment processes in arts integration; *frames arts integration in the larger context of curriculum integration, problem-based learning, and the multiple intelligences; *provides the theoretical frameworks that connect standards-based instruction to innovative teaching and learning, and embeds arts education in the larger issue of whole school improvement; *blends a description of the arts integration process with personal stories, anecdotes, and impressions of those involved, with a wealth of examples from diverse cultural backgrounds; *tells the stories of arts integration from the classroom to the school level and introduces the dynamics of arts partnerships in communities that connect arts organizations, schools, and neighborhoods; *offers a variety of resources for engaging the arts--either as an individual teacher or within a partnership; and *includes a color insert that illustrates the work teachers, students, and artists have done in arts integration schools and an extensive appendix of tools, instruments, Web site, contacts, and curriculum ideas for immediate use. Of primary interest to K-12 classroom teachers, arts specialists, and visiting artists who work with young people in schools or community arts organizations, this book is also highly relevant and useful for policymakers, arts partnerships, administrators, and parents.

"Accessible common sense meets uncommon expert guidance in The Arts Book. This book is a thorough, reliable, wise, inspiring, user-friendly, distillation of the best the field of arts learning knows. Whitesitt and Franklin have created an essential foundation book that will take the national experiment in arts integration ahead a giant step. Buy it; trust it; wear out its pages." Eric Booth (Eric Booth is on the faculty at Juilliard, the Lincoln Center Institute, and the Kennedy Center. He is a frequent keynote speaker and international arts consultant, the author of "The Everyday Work of Art," and founding editor of the Teaching Artist Journal.)"This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to start an arts integration program. Whitesitt and Franklin have clearly made the case for how alignment, rigor and teamwork lead to sustainability of quality school wide arts-integrated instruction. I will be recommending this book to all schools beginning the arts integration process and to all schools that have established programs and want to evaluate the impact of arts-integrated instruction on the school community. John Ceschini(John Ceschini is the Executive Director of Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance. He is the former principal of Kensington-Parkwood Elementary School, an Arts Integration Model School in Montgomery County, Maryland.)The ARTS Book describes four factors that are essential in quality arts integration programs: alignment, rigor, teamwork and sustainability. Based on the authors' evaluations of eight arts integration projects over the past seven years in which they conducted over 1000 structured classroom observations of arts-integrated lessons, The ARTS Book explains how to . . . * Align project vision, activities, and outcomes, * Align professional development offerings with arts integration curriculum and instruction, * Ensure rigorous professional development, * Guarantee rigorous arts integration curriculum and instruction, * Include teamwork as a foundational strategy in project design and professional development, and * Embed the sustainability of transformed teacher practice in the overall project design.The ARTS Book is a step-by-step manual of how to strengthen arts integration programs. Using an indispensible tool for project success - the logic model - the book shows how to construct a comprehensive logic model for an arts integration program that guarantees the inclusion of alignment, rigor, teamwork and sustainability. It describes in detail how to develop concrete indicators of success using process and outcome objectives, evaluation questions, and performance measures. The book includes a number of checklists for rigor and teamwork to help program designers and coordinators monitor progress. It also leads the reader through the creation of a logic model for outreach and sustainability. Numerous examples are given throughout to aid in the planning, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of quality arts integration programs.After using The ARTS Book, teachers, teaching artists and arts administrators will be able to design and implement a quality arts integration program noted for its sound underlying theory, quality curriculum and instruction, dynamic learning community, sustainability, and measurable impact on teacher practice and student learning.

Stuart Walker’s design work has been described as life-changing, inspiring, disturbing and ferocious. Drawing on an extraordinarily diverse range of sources and informed by creative practice, Design for Life penetrates to the heart of modern culture and the malaise that underlies today’s moral and environmental crises. The author argues that this malaise is deep-seated and fundamental to the modern outlook. He shows how our preoccupation with technological progress, growth and the future has produced a constricted view of life – one that is both destructive and self-reinforcing. Based on over twenty-five years of scholarship and creative practice, he demonstrates the vital importance of solitude, contemplation, inner growth and the present moment in developing a different course – one that looks squarely at our current, precarious situation while offering a positive, hopeful way forward – a way that is compassionate, context-based, human scale, ethically motivated and critically creative. Design for Life is an intensely original contribution that will be essential reading for design practitioners and students. Written in a clear, accessible style, it will also appeal to a broader readership, especially anyone who is concerned with contemporary society’s rising inequalities and environmental failings and is looking for a more constructive, balanced and thoughtful direction.
