dc.description.abstractThis dissertation explores an alternative to the Technical Rationalist (Schön, 1983) approach to schooling, which has traditionally prevailed in the U.S. public schools. It examines theories of learning and creativity (Dewey, 1938/1997; Davis, 2000) that fit well with the rationale for an arts-based integrated curriculum in schools. Through the narrative inquiry research method (Clandinin & Connelly, 1994; Craig, 2007), I show the cultivation of arts-based instruction in one elementary school and how the attention to teacher professional development helped this campus develop an integrated arts-based teaching and learning environment. In this paper, I provide a rationale for arts-based education; give a brief overview of arts-based education programs; and present a view of teachers and teaching in an arts-based setting.
