Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

The first edition of this bestseller was featured in The New York Times and The Boston Globe for its groundbreaking research on the positive effects of art education on student learning across the curriculum. Capitalizing on observations and conversations with educators who have used the Studio Thinking Framework in diverse settings, this expanded edition features new material, including:

  • The addition of Exhibitions as a fourth Studio Structure for Learning (along with Demonstration-Lecture, Students-at-Work, and Critique).
  • Explanation and examples of the dispositional elements of each Habit, including skill, alertness (noticing appropriate times to put skills to use), and inclination (the drive or motivation to employ skills).
  • A chart aligning Habits to the English Language Arts and Mathematics Common Core.
  • Descriptions of how the Framework has been used inside and outside of schools in curriculum planning, teaching, and assessment across arts and non-arts disciplines.
  • A full-color insert with new examples of student art.

Studio Thinking 2 will help advocates explain arts education to policymakers, help art teachers develop and refine their teaching and assessment practices, and assist educators in other disciplines to learn from existing practices in arts education.
