TITLE: The arts in education : an introduction to aesthetics, theory and pedagogy / Michael Fleming.
AUTHOR: Fleming, Michael (Michael P.)
PUBLISHED: London: Routledge, 2012.
DESCRIPTION: xi, 134 p. ; 25 cm.
NOTES: "Do the arts improve academic achievement? What does it mean to 'teach'art? What should the balance of classic and pop be in the music curriculum? Should we encourage young children on the stage? How do we judge whether what a child produces is good? How do we justify the arts in the curriculum? What should be the balance between form and content when teaching art?The Arts in education inspire considerable commitment and passion but this is not always matched by clarity of understanding. This book introduces the reader to key theoretical questions associated with arts education and clearly explains how these are related to practice. It provides an authoritative account of how ideas relevant to education are addressed by key authors in aesthetics, art theory and cultural studies. Covering all aspects of Arts education, the book considers: Why should we teach the arts? Definitions and theories of art; Influences on teaching the arts; Researching the arts; Creativity; Assessment. Throughout the book there are examples of practice to illustrate key ideas and a discussion of useful background texts with a summary of content and arguments for further exploration. Written by a leading authority in the field, it is essential reading for students on Arts PGCE and M Le vel courses, teachers of the Arts and policy developers that require more understanding and insight into their practice.
