Making Meaning : Constructing Multimodal Perspectives of Language, Literacy, and Learning through Arts-based Early Childhood Education, Hardback Book

Making Meaning : Constructing Multimodal Perspectives of Language, Literacy, and Learning through Arts-based Early Childhood Education Hardback

Edited by Marilyn Narey

Part of the Educating the Young Child series

Description

Making Meaning is a synthesis of theory, research, and practice that explicitly presents art as a meaning making process. This book provokes readers to examine their current understandings of language, literacy and learning through the lens of the various arts-based perspectives offered in this volume; provides a starting point for constructing broader, multimodal views of what it might mean to "make meaning"; and underscores why understanding arts-based learning as a meaning-making process is especially critical to early childhood education in the face of narrowly-focused, test-driven curricular reforms.

Each contributor integrates this theory and research with stories of how passionate teachers, teacher-educators, and pre-service teachers, along with administrators, artists, and professionals from a variety of fields have transcended disciplinary boundaries to engage the arts as a meaning-making process for young children and for themselves.
