"With their commitment to sharing ideas, resources, suggestions,
struggles and successes, Burnaford, Aprill, and Weiss have written
their remarkably comprehensive book with a refreshing spirit that
manages to share their experience and expertise without ever giving
the ipression that they have it all figured out....This book should
be required reading for anyone who participates, or wishes to
participate, in an arts education partnership.
-Harvard Educational Review"Throughout the book are many concrete illustrations of ways artists and classroom teachers have successfully worked together....this is a very useful additional to the professional library of classroom teachers, arts specialists, and educational policymakers."
-Childhood Education"...Not only looks at the arts as a way to make meaning, but provides engaging examples from the classroom that show what it can look like when thoughtfully applied....Renaissance in the Classroom is written in a strong teacher-to-teacher voice....The theoretical framework is timely....The relationship of this work to democracy in action in the classroom is argued in a clear and compelling way."
