I am a certified art teacher. Got my BA in art ed in 1970 and the
thrust of that time was Dewey/Lowenfeld, very developmental, very
process oriented.

Then I left for a 10 year stint in 2nd grade in 1988.

Now I'm back in elem art, and happy. (At least sort of happy, until I
read all this discussion tonight.) But I am so much more at home with
the philosophy I first learned. I have read many and tried a few of the
Getty lessons, trying to get a handle on DBAE. Those lessons are
bummers. I never feel like I'm accomplishing the goals, the kids don't
get it cause it is new to them too. I REALLY need some help here.

I can't find any DBAE textbooks out there. If there are textbooks, I
haven't located them. I spent Saturday afternoon in the college library
without success. I browse the websites, read the emails, attempt small
changes. But I feel like a dinosaur--doomed to extinction unless I
adapt. I am trying! Any advice?
