Literacy and the Arts for the Integrated Classroom: Alternative Ways of Knowing advocates an innovative, integrated program of drama, song, dance, photography, art, and poetry to promote children's literacy development. A hands-on guide, it shows how teachers in today's ethnically and linguistically diverse classrooms can make use of the fine and dramatic arts to enhance children's reading, writing, listening, and speaking proficiencies. Proposing a practical application of Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, the authors emphasize an integrated curriculum that encourages children's appreciation of the arts while motivating them to talk and write about themselves and, in so doing, master basic literacy skills. Literacy and the Arts for the Integrated Classroom features: "user friendly" content and organization; abundant real classroom vignettes and practical suggestions for implementing an integrated literacy program; and helpful pedagogy, including chapter introductions and summaries, end-of-chapter project ideas and journal/discussion questions, and a comprehensive bibliography.
