AE 3264 - Methods of Art Education, K-12 Part II

Credits: 3

Field experience hours: 66 clock hours in a public or private school setting. This course provides students the opportunity to synthesize their learning before going into the field as a student teacher. This methods class puts theory and planning into practice. Students will participate in a fieldwork practicum in this course and author and instruct standards-based units that effectively combine their practice as artists, their knowledge as educators, and their Liberal Arts courses. Students will apply the elements of curriculum design, lesson/unit plans, accommodations, modifications, and assessment strategies as part of their own action research in the field. Students model and demonstrate the skills intrinsic to the lesson, participate in the process, and create the art product resulting from the lesson objectives. Students will understand what it means to be part of a professional learning environment, based on common inquiry, personal reflections, and peer feedback. Research and investigations of student diversity, multicultural objectives, learning styles, and exceptionality are incorporated into practical applications. Upon successful completion of this course, students will develop a professional portfolio that demonstrates findings of their research as it relates to their teaching philosophy, methods, and strategies for developing art programs for the K-12 student, instructional objectives, lesson, and unit plans using a variety of media, and personal reflection based on classroom practice.
