Annotation

Now in Paperback "This remarkable set of essays defines the role of imagination in general education, arts education, aesthetics, literature, and the social and multicultural context...The author argues for schools to be restructured as places where students reach out for meanings and where the previously silenced or unheard may have a voice. She invites readers to develop processes to enhance and cultivate their own visions through the application of imagination and the arts. Releasing the Imagination should be required reading for all educators, particularly those in teacher education, and for general and academic readers."--Choice "Maxine Greene, with her customary eloquence, makes an impassioned argument for using the arts as a tool for opening minds and for breaking down the barriers to imagining the realities of worlds other than our own familiar cultures...There is a strong rhythm to the thoughts, the arguments, and the entire sequence of essays presented here."
