Art Education at the Millennium: A Critical Convergence

Dear ArtsEdNet Community:

Occasionally, we at Corwin Press receive manuscripts and book
proposals in the area of Art Education. Currently, we seek reviewers
at all levels knowledgeable in the field of Art Education.

As of now, we have a proposal that needs such review.


Art educators and policy makers today have an unprecedented
opportunity to rethink how the visual arts are taught in America's
schools. This opportunity arises from a critical convergence of
ideas, theories, and technology --- all of which are pushing the arts
to the core of schooling.

"Art Education at the Millennium: A critical convergence" explores the
five key factors in this convergence: 1) goals and standards, 2)
discipline-based art education theory, 3) postmodern perspectives, 4)
constructivist teaching, and 5)computer technology.

Below is a description of our review process and a reviewer profile
form. If you are interested in reviewing for Corwin, please complete
the profile and email to patrick_clark or

Corwin Press, Inc., a subsidiary of Sage Publications, specializes in
books and journals for professionals in the field of education. Our
mission is to offer practical, hands-on resources to help
professionals involved in K-12 and early childhood education do their
jobs better -- and, in the process, help advance the field and improve
education for everyone.

We regularly receive manuscripts for consideration and are currently
looking for knowledgeable people in a variety of fields to read and
review them. These reviewer comments are most helpful in providing
feedback to authors in order to strengthen manuscripts and produce the
best possible book.

If you would be interested in reviewing manuscripts, we would like to
talk to you about your areas of interest. Corwin Press invites
reviewers to select 2-7 complimentary books (depending on the project)
from our catalog, upon receipt of the review.

Corwin Press has proposals and manuscripts reviewed prior to
publication. If you would be willing to be a reviewer, please
