In Lively Learning, long-time educator Linda Crawford offers practical suggestions for bringing the arts into the daily life of the classroom. Written for all classroom teachers, including those without a background in the arts, Lively Learning will help teachers gain comfort with five art forms—drawing, music, movement, theater, and poetry writing—and integrate those art forms into reading, writing, social studies, science, and math. The book includes a sample lesson plan for each content area and a comprehensive resource list.
