Every child may not grow up to be a writer or an artist, but learning to understand the arts is essential to education. Backed by the versatile genius and vast volume of work of poet, novelist, dramatist, artist and thinker Rabindranath Tagore, educationist Feisal Alkazi sets out to introduce literature and art appreciation in the classroom. His is a multi-disciplinary and multi-sourced approach, participatory rather than top down, in keeping with the National Curriculum Framework. Using extracts from the Nobel Laureate’s work, picking out highlights, and structuring 21 unusual activities around them, the author encourages children to “become careful observers, critical thinkers and curious learners”.

Multidisciplinary, hands-on, learner needs-centric approach

“The highlight of the book however is the large and varied range of classroom exercises that follow each of the units... While the book itself is a teacher’s handbook, this does not in any way limit its readership… The multidisciplinary, hands-on, learner needs-centric approach makes Alkazi’s book highly recommended and successful.” - The Book Review, November 2016
