StARTing With… is an introduction to the art of art teaching in Canadian schools. It was designed and written by art teachers and art teacher educators from across Canada who wanted to provide a stARTing point for those interested in learning about the teaching of art. This book introduces you to the key roles, values and issues concerning teachers of art at the elementary level while also asking you to move beyond its pages into the realm of the possible, reflecting upon your personal beliefs and values in art education.
You can now offer a fully illustrated collection of art education readings and resources to your elementary education generalists in digital or print form (or both – the pagination is identical). In this time of shifting to online course offerings and limited access to bookstores, many students and teachers may prefer the new eBook option.
Faculty members and instructors:
When ordering texts for your education courses, please ask your campus bookstore to add the eBook option through Campus eBookstore.
