Choreographing Creativity: Teaching as Artistic and Technical within the Curriculum of Composition views teaching as a combination of artistic and technical elements, similar to a figure skating or dance routine. Dr. Jennifer Bird presents a fictional story founded in factual teaching methods to illustrate this concept. The fifteen teachers in "Cohort for Change" join her on this journey to share snapshots of their classroom experiences and advice for educators who wish to reclaim classroom creativity in the current "teach to the test" culture of education.
Dr. Jennifer Lynne Bird currently teaches graduate and undergraduate classes for current and future teachers at Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, Florida. Of all the writing she has published, she feels the proudest of this book. The "Cohort for Change" Teachers contributed their writing to this book. The fifteen teachers are from schools in Martin County and Palm Beach County in Florida.
