EDES 5117 Secondary Content Methodology for Teaching Art

4 semester hours

This seminar builds off early fieldwork experiences and examines the theoretical, historical, and practical issues of art education. The content will be based on the Visual and Performing Arts Framework and California Student Academic Content Standards for Visual Arts. The class provides a context in which to engage in a critical dialogue about the multiple components and issues of arts education for practicing professionals. Through study of important historical as well as contemporary examples of successful models of arts education students will learn, on a very practical level, about the development, implementation, and assessment of a successful and responsible art education curriculum. Projects will involve creating a unit of standards-based lesson plans that demonstrate both theoretical and practical applications of the following: teaching methods, classroom practices, assessment, technology, community and collaboration, teacher preparation and content issues such as multiculturalism, artists and art history, and integration of academic disciplines and state standards into art education. Throughout this course, students will develop the expertise needed to foster secondary students’ capabilities, creativity, imagination, and artistic growth while designing and standards-based curriculum and lessons. Students will discover how artistic perception, creative expression, historical and cultural context, and aesthetic valuing can help them and their students think critically and analytically. Pre-service teachers will also learn the importance of connecting and applying visual arts to other art forms, subject areas, and to careers. Students will develop competency in using technology as a presentation and a research/problem-solving tool. Students will compile course material into a teaching resource portfolio and a professional portfolio. Portfolios will include all class projects and demonstration of understanding exhibited through written and presented materials. Clinical Practice is a required component of this course.
