"Built Environment Education in Art Education" Book Now Available
New from the National Art Education Association, Built Environment Education in Art Education. Co-editors Joanne K. Guilfoil and Alan R. Sandler have brought together an informative and inspiring array of materials for teachers who wish to give more attention to architecture and the built environment. Studies of architecture and the built environment inevitably call for some measure of interdisciplinary learning.  In this volume, you will find food for thought and practical information for teaching. Contributors to this anthology identify major issues and offer diverse views about the meanings of environments -- multicultural, feminist, ecological, social, and personal. They offer guides for analyzing environments, including concepts from art, urban planning, architectural history, and criticism. Several chapters treat the classroom and community as contexts for reflective and creative learning, for individual and collaborative activities. There are provocative chapters about homes built by "homeless" people, the values articulated in school architecture, the constructive activities of children, and research on teaching youngsters about historical preservation.
