Cake Baking and the Creative Process Too is the second edition of a fun and quick, creative resource for teachers. In this second edition, author Judi Hofmeister includes more in-depth information for planning lessons and curricular units using her cake baking analogy of the Creative Process. Hofmeister keeps the innovative classroom exercises (or what she calls "Recipes of Imagination") for dance, theatre, and vocal music that were in her first edition, then she further expands and includes new cultural ideas for the arts integrated classroom. Any of Hofmeister’s exercises or ideas can be used as stand-alone, quick classroom tasks, or they could also be blended together to create entire curricular units. Better yet, the information that Hofmeister shares could be the foundation for large, collaborative, creative projects across content areas. Each section of this book encourages teachers and students alike, to think outside of the box, or "dance on the other side of the barre".
