Overview

This versatile resource shows future and current early childhood educators how to integrate children’s creativity, play, and the arts into their curriculum in a way that fosters learning and growth, meets accountability measures, emphasizes the use of technology to enhance creativity and the arts, and suggests ways to differentiate instruction and make adaptations for diverse learners across the art forms. So, at the very time when educators and students alike are most in need of creative responses in complicated situations, and young children are being subjected to more drill and practice of basic skills, necessary to survive and thrive in an uncertain future, this proven and adaptable text will meet that need more than any other resource available to the early childhood educator.
