Description of the Course This course covers the foundations of art teaching including aesthetics, art criticism, art history, studio production, the psychology of art, child growth in art, the history of art teaching, and research in art education. Purpose and Objectives of the Course This course is structured to assist pre-service art teachers in developing confidence, knowledge, and skills in the theory and practice of teaching art. The emphasis in this course is on learning how the art teacher can use educational theory and research to shape instructional practices in the classroom and in alternative educational settings. The following objectives are aligned with the 12 Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAP) mandated by Florida legislation (Statute 240.529). At the completion of this course, students will have a basic knowledge of: The history of art teaching in the United States (FEAP 4,8,11); Theories of child development and exceptional education in art (FEAP 5,6,7,9,10) The role of modern and post-modern art educational theories and practices in the classroom (FEAP 1,2,4,5,8,10); The role of community-based, multicultural, and globalization in the teaching of art (FEAP 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11); Implications of contemporary research on cognition and creativity for art education practices (FEAP 1,2,4,5,7,12); Content integration and interdisciplinary approaches to the teaching of art (FEAP 2,3,6,8,10); Aesthetic philosophies and theories, and how to apply them to facilitating classroom discourse about art; (FEAP 4) Traditional and contemporary pedagogical strategies in teaching art (FEAP 1,7,11,12); Alternative career options for individuals in the field of art education (FEAP 3, 11); and Socio-culturally defined functions of art in general education and in the community (FEAP 4, 5, 11). Methods of the Course The primary instructional methods of this class will include lectures, readings, group discussions, individual and group projects. To assist students in developing a full understanding of the course content, other methods of learning may be employed as needed. Students will be assessed through writings, participation in discussions, journaling, projects, quizzes, and professionalism. Students will be expected to take primary responsibility for their own professional development.
