The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us? Paperback – September 8, 2017
|New from||Used from|
“Mary Jo Pollman presents a coherent, well-researched argument for replacing meaningless activities with engaging creative art and STEM experiences, which have the potential to become cohesive, integrated adventures in learning.”
―From the Foreword by Judy Harris Helm, president, Best Practices, Inc., author of Young Investigators, The Project Approach in the Early Years, Third Edition
“Mary Jo has written for individuals who influence what happens in early childhood classrooms, and she understands the many connections between science and art. Her illustrative material and resources foster creativity and science learning with ready-to-use activities. The world is changing much faster now, and The Young Artist as Scientist arrives at the dawning of a new Renaissance in early childhood education!”
―Carrie Lynne Draper, founder & executive director, Readiness Learning Associates
“At a time when early elementary curriculum is becoming increasingly narrow in focus, this timely book builds a compelling case for the importance of the arts, including how the arts align with, undergird, and support science, technology, engineering, and math. Woven throughout the book are historical perspectives, current research, critical concepts, and activity ideas that provide a rich rationale and immediate applicability to the classroom.”
―Julie Bullard, University of Montana
