NAEA Releases "Multicultural Artworlds"

 Includes 15 lessons and curriculum unit

Multicultural Artworlds offers a rationale, a model curriculum unit, and
sample lessons for guiding students in investigating key people, places,
activities, and ideas of some of the historical and contemporary artworlds
that make up the complex art traditions of North America. The first section
presents foundations for multicultural art education. The second has 15
artworld-centered lessons developed by practicing elementary, secondary, and
university art educators. Section three includes resources for teaching one
multicultural, artworld-centered curriculum unit.

Today’s teachers of art are charged to offer students opportunities to
experience and make art that is meaningful to them and at the same time to
focus on standards in the quality of art students view and in the quality of
art they produce. Teachers of art are increasingly concerned about increasing
cross-cultural understanding.

Edited by Mary Erickson and Bernard Young, this book has three foci that
guide art educators in addressing these important concerns: 1) multicultural
art education, 2) alternative artworlds, and 3) the maintenance and evolution
of art traditions. Attention to these foci help guide teachers of art in
developing art curricula that are inclusive, that promote high standards of
art achievement, and that are culturally sensitive.
