Open It Up: Integrating the Arts Into Jewish Education
Designed not for arts specialists (though it will be valuable to them), but for average classroom teachers who think they aren't artists, musicians, actors, or writers, Open It Up! provides the ideas, the inspiration, and the toolss to weave music, drama, creative writing, and the visual arts organically into the classroom curriculum. It shows every teacher how to breathe the life into any subject matter through creative, engaging integrative arts activities. Open It Up! aims to break the perception of the arts as 'extra' or 'add-on' activities, and 'open up' the subject matter by integrating arts activities into the curriculum in a natural, organic way.
