P. BRUCE UHRMACHER and JONATHAN MATTHEWS, EDITORS
For graduate-level Curriculum, Art Education, and Qualitative Research courses. With contributions from some of the leading figures in the field, this is an insightful analysis and evaluation of the "intricate palette" that is the work of Elliot Eisner, through a reexamination of Eisner's seminal writings. After an introduction to Eisner's basic ideas and their origins in his personal experience, the heart of the book comprises four sections that address Eisner's impact on curriculum; qualitative evaluation and research; the arts in education; and teaching, teacher education, and reform. A reflective final chapter serves as an epilogue, providing observations from all of the previous chapters. Published by Prentice Hall.
