Mary Jalongo, Professional Studies in Education, and her coauthor Joan Isenberg, George Mason University, have just published the sixth edition of their successful textbook Creative Thinking and Arts-Based Learning: Preschool through Fourth Grade with Pearson Publishing.

Three graduates of the Curriculum and Instruction doctoral program—Laurie Nicholson, Marilyn Narey and Josh DeSantis—made contributions to different chapters.

“Technology Tie-Ins” were written by C&I doctoral candidates Brianna Carney Strahler, Megan Cicconi, Colleen DiBuono, and Jennifer Thorp.

The artwork, photographs, and experiences of Anna Shyrock (daughter of Shannon Phillips-Shyrock) were compiled into a case study of creative behavior for Chapter 1.

Doctoral candidates Nicole Olbrish and Mary Grace Stutzman drafted classroom scenario test items for inclusion in the Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank.

Students Amal Aljehani, Colleen DiBuono, and David Wachob contributed photographs of their children engaged in arts activities and physical education.
