CSED 5300: Methods and Strategies for Teaching Art $1350.00

Course Description

A methods course focused on strategies used in teaching Art, PreK-12, this seminar involves the search of one’s own studio investigations for metaphors and themes, which then become the focus of the construction of units of study. Students develop unit materials including: research on art and artists, formation of an elegant problem, experimentation with materials, creation of a prototype, design of teaching visuals, assessment process and criteria, and a written unit plan with ideas for adapting the unit to different grade levels. As a result, students select and apply a variety of strategies for exploring form and materials, developing symbolic and academic language, and different ways of knowing and thinking in art. Class meetings involve studio investigations, presentations, discussions, and group work. This course is intended for new teachers in the field and fulfills 3-credits toward Maryland teaching certification; however, it could also be applicable to veteran teachers who wish to renew their own artistic practice and develop new instructional units. Please note that this course will meet: Mondays from 9AM-12PM Tuesdays 1PM-4PM Thursdays 10AM-11:30AM
