Go Figure! Using the Art of Jasper Johns to Teach Number Concepts
Ward, Robin
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v42 n2 p23-27 2014
Despite convincing research and strong public support, education budget cuts have forced schools and districts to limit or even eliminate arts instruction. Author Robin Ward argues that educators need to address the critical need to preserve and, in those cases, re-integrate the arts back into the school curriculum--mostly because the arts are foundational to high quality early education (Korn-Bursztyn, 2012). Herein, Ward describes how to infuse a mathematics lesson with the visual arts in a preschool classroom using the artwork of American painter, sculptor, and printmaker, Jasper Johns.
