Developing an Ecological Identity in Young Children IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE ADDING THIS ITEM TO CART, PLEASE EMAIL alison@pademelonpress.com.au with your mailing address and phone number and we will process your order.

Author(s): Ann Pelo (click on the author's name for more titles)

We must discover our place in the natural world. Together.

To nurture ecological identity in young children, we invite them into relationship with the world beyond walls and with the creatures that live there. We invite them into ethical thinking anchored by the compassion that comes from caring and engaged relationships. We invite them to come home to the Earth, and to live honorably in that home.

Join author Ann Pelo on her year-long journey as she nurtures the ecological identity of a toddler and discovers for herself what it means to live in relationship with the natural world…

…delighting in discovery and adventure

…developing dispositions and skills for being in the out-of-doors

…learning when to speak and when to be still

…knowing joy, grief, reverence, astonishment, and gladness

…embracing the comradeship of fellow explorers

When we turn towards the Earth with curiosity and sympathy, with humility and wonder, our lives fall into place — we fall into place. This is what it means to grow an ecological identity.

Author(s): Penny Harris, Winnie Zhou (click on the author's name for more titles)

When Pinney suggests making kites on a windy day, Ginnie is a bit worried about being blown about. Everyone else thinks it is a great idea.

Studio Thinking 2
The Real Benefits of Visual Arts Education, Second Edition

Author(s): Lois Hetland (click on the author's name for more titles)

“Our decade of using the Studio Thinking Framework in California’s schools positions us for success in this new era because of the foundation of reflective, creative, and critical thinking developed in our schools and districts.” —From the Foreword to the Second Edition by Louise Music, Executive Director of Integrated Learning, Alameda County Office of Education, Hayward, CA

“Studio Thinking [is] a vision not only of learning in the arts but what could be learning most anywhere.” —From the Foreword to the First Edition by David N. Perkins, Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Senior Co-Director of Harvard Project Zero

The first edition of this bestseller was featured in The New York Times and The Boston Globe for its groundbreaking research on the positive effects of art education on student learning across the curriculum. Capitalizing on observations and conversations with educators who have used the Studio Thinking Framework in diverse settings, this expanded edition features new material, including:

• The addition of Exhibitions as a fourth Studio Structure for Learning (along with Demonstration-Lecture, Students-at-Work, and Critique).
• Explanation and examples of the dispositional elements of each Habit, including skill, alertness (noticing appropriate times to put skills to use), and inclination (the drive or motivation to employ skills).
• A chart aligning Habits to the English Language Arts and Mathematics Common Core.
• Descriptions of how the Framework has been used inside and outside of schools in curriculum planning, teaching, and assessment across arts and non-arts disciplines.
• A full-color insert with new examples of student art.

Studio Thinking 2 will help advocates explain arts education to policymakers, help art teachers develop and refine their teaching and assessment practices, and assist educators in other disciplines to learn from existing practices in arts education.
