For many years innovative educators have used the arts to enrich their students’ classroom lives. Teachers who have integrated drama, music, dance, poetry, fiction, and the visual arts within their classrooms have witnessed the numerous ways in which the arts motivate children to learn. But while the powerful influence that the arts have had on children has been well researched and documented, the effect that the arts have had on teachers has been overlooked.
The essays within this volume are a collective celebration of the ways in which educators within numerous fields, and at all grade levels, have used the arts and creativity to sustain their passion for teaching. The editors of Passion and Pedagogy have selected essays that bring readers into classrooms where pioneering practices enable teachers to grow, to create personal identities, and to feel empowered through the construction of dynamic partnerships with their students. Dialogues that precede each chapter were designed to bring authors’ voices to a diverse set of writings that investigate new forms of creativity within the postmodern teacher’s repertoire, the development of reflective and artistic classroom curricula, and the inclusion of gender, identity and multiple ways of knowing within educational theory and practice.

About the Author:

The Editors: Elijah Mirochnik is Assistant Professor in the Creative Arts in Learning Division at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He received his Ph.D. in architecture from the University of California at Berkeley. His numerous innovative and experimental curriculum designs have been informed by his research in the areas of interracial and intercultural classroom collaboration, art as research, teacher identity and practice, and artistic expression as social responsibility. He is the author of Teaching in the First Person: Understanding Voice and Vocabulary in Learning Relationships (Peter Lang, 2000).
Debora C. Sherman is Professor Emerita at Lesley University. She has used her background in history and fine art to inform both her classroom teaching and her work as a reading specialist at the preschool through grade twelve levels. Her fields of interest include adult literacy, learning, and teacher education at undergraduate and graduate levels. She has worked with public service agencies and corporations as a communications consultant. Her current areas of research include educational philosophy and perspectives and adult development, curriculum development, mentoring, educational reform, supervision and development of teachers, and doctoral level writing.

Review:

«Each essay [in this book] – whether dealing with teacher identity, the arts across the curriculum, story-telling, the making of meaning – begins in a person-to-person conversation between one or another of the talented editors and the writer (or writers) of individual essays. Those conversations and the play of many voices open to a fascinating exploration of approaches to teaching grounded in live experiences and the actualities of practice. This is a remarkable collection: a symposium on experimental, existential, and constructivist themes that unlocks many doors to unexpected possibilities.» (Maxine Greene, Teachers College, Columbia University)
«Plays, poems, interviews, and everywhere in the first person singular! This collection performs the artistry it so passionately promotes.» (William F. Pinar, St. Bernard Parish Alumni Endowed Professor, Louisiana State University)
