Disappointing, 8 Jan. 2010
I really liked the sound of this book and thought from the description that it would give plenty of detailed instruction about teaching particular activities. How wrong was I? There are lots of waffly pages about what teaching art is about that do not help you in your art lessons at all. Some of the activities are okay but there is not enough detail about how to model or teach them, and I took one look at many of them and knew that I wouldn't touch them with a barge-pole. Many of them simply are not realistic for a class of 30 children. The CD rom is also of very limited practical use. I doubt whether I will use more than one or two ideas from this book and feel I have wasted my money.
