This book presents a theoretical and practical guide to implementing an inquiry-based approach to teaching which centers creative responses to works of art in curriculum.

Guided by Maxine Greene’s philosophy of Aesthetic Education -the authors discuss social justice implications of marginalized students having access to the arts and opportunities to find their voices through creative expression.

The authors aim to demystify the process of inquiry-based learning through the arts for teachers and teacher educators by offering examples of lessons taught in high school classrooms and graduate level teaching methods courses.  

Examples of student writing and art work demonstrate how creative interactions with the arts can help learners of all ages deepen their skills as readers, writers, and thinkers.
