Description

Professor Elliot Eisner has spent the last forty years researching, thinking and writing about some of the key and enduring issues in Arts Education, Curriculum Studies and Qualitative Research. He has compiled a career-long collection of his finest work - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings and major theoretical contributions - and brought them together in this single manageable volume. Starting with a specially written introduction, which gives an overview of Professor Eisner's career and contextualizes his selection, the chapters cover a wide range of issues including: - children and art - the use of educational connoisseurship - aesthetic modes of knowing - absolutism and relativism in curriculum theory - education reform and the ecology of schooling - the future of education research. Chart the contributions made by Professor Eisner over his forty year career towards the development of Arts Education, Curriculum Studies and Qualitative Research. This book is a true gem for anyone wishing to know more about these exciting fields.

Originally trained as a painter, Elliot Eisner's teaching and research centre around the ways in which schools might improve by using the processes of the arts in all their programs. Elliot W.
