Dear Art Educators,

I am just passing on this new resource from NAEA

Interdisciplinary Art Education: Builds Bridges to Connect Discipline

Mary Stokrocki, Editor. This book is about interdisciplinary approaches to
art education. The concept of interdisciplinary learning is one that should be
scrutinized closely and research and practical applications are needed to
inform the field about best practices.

This book contains both theoretical concepts and practical suggestions for
curriculum construction and assessment for interdisciplinary education that
incorporate the visual arts as good and worthwhile, while at the same time,
proposing ways in which art can be integrated holistically with other subjects.

In addition, there are a variety of research methodologies found in the
different chapters and a range of subjects, such as science, social studies,
anthropology, and the performing arts, for which interdisciplinary concepts have
been applied effectively and appear to be coherent, complete, and appropriate.

All those who anticipate incorporating interdisciplinary practices into their
school reform efforts should consider examples found in this book, about how
to keep the integrity of art education theory and practice and at the same
time construct new ways of reconfiguring the field of art education.
