This course will explore methods of teaching art to children in grades K-12. In this class, students will plan lessons, units of study and hands-on activities while learning theoretical and practical approaches relevant to the teaching of visual art. Working in groups and individually, students will apply creative and critical thinking to explore structured as well as experimental approaches to teaching art. Students will observe and participate in art teaching situations.
In this class students will:
I expect you to attend every class. Punctual attendance is mandatory. If missing class is unavoidable it is up to you to catch up on what you missed, look up the weekly assignment on moodle, talk to other students to find out what was covered in class and meet with the TA or teacher if necessary. Being absent from class is no excuse for not handing in work electronically. You are expected to hand in all assignments by the due dates. Missing more than three classes is unacceptable and will result in no evaluation. If you are due to give a presentation or have an observation that you will be unable to attend, it is up to you to contact the school and/or instructor you were planning to observe via. phone or e-mail before the presentation or observation was scheduled.
Reading Responses are due on appointed days unless otherwise specified. Five times in the semester you are to reflect on the readings through writing a poem, personal story, visual arts or a performance piece which can be presented both in class and/or through an online discussion forum. Whatever mode you choose it must reflect a concrete understanding of the reading from the CURRENT days readings which is demonstrated in an additional paragraph also submitted on the forum. The posts are due the day before class no later than 5pm. Additionally you are responsible for responding to one other forum post each week. The responses are due before 9:00 am on the day of class. Being absent from class is no excuse for not handing in work electronically.
