"Common Sense Arts Standards" takes into account the challenging contexts in which the arts are taught in America's schools. This book illustrates the unrecognized and significant contributions the arts can make to overall student achievement in this era of Common Core State Standards which presages a profound shift in this country's paradigm for teaching and learning.
"Common Sense Arts Standards" provide clear methodologies for employing what Bruce calls the "Common Core Habits of Mind" through an arts lens in ways that students can transfer to other domains of learning."
