ResourceWatch: Recommendations for cool (or hot) arts-based resources
Its great to see our membership growing so rapidly. Thanks again to those who have introduced themselves. Hoping to hear from others in the next little while!
I thought that I would begin the week with a resource-related question: Do you have a recommendation for a really cool/hot arts-related resource...something that has captured your imagination or the imagination of your students? It could be discipline specific (dance, drama, music, visual arts, etc), or it could be related to the integration of the arts in other aspects of the curriculum.
As the discussion around this grows (and hopefully it will), I will collate the suggestions into one list that I will post.
I'm going to start off with a book that I used today. I was introducing the elements and principles of visual design and the book, "Picture This: How Pictures Work" by Molly Bang filled the bill perfectly. For one review and description of the book, see Review of Picture This
This book has a ton of potential for teaching young people about how pictures are constructed and composed. Fun, engaging and informative.
