A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating The Use Of Differentiated Instruction In A High School Art Classroom, Kristen Bartkowski 2014 SelectedWorks

A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating The Use Of Differentiated Instruction In A High School Art Classroom, Kristen Bartkowski

Kristen Bartkowski

The initial purpose of this study was to understand how one art teacher applied aspects of differentiated instruction in her art classroom. In the review of literature, I documented research and theories about differentiated instruction, which showed an overlap between theories of constructivism and differentiated instruction.

The methodology relied on a basic qualitative case study in which I played the role of participant as observer. Through the use of observation, interview, and document analysis, I sought to uncover aspects of differentiated instruction that one high school art teacher applied in her classroom over a period of twelve weeks for one ...


Creative Movement Classes At The Ioa: Pilot Program, Sienna L. Williams 2014 University of San Francisco

Creative Movement Classes At The Ioa: Pilot Program, Sienna L. Williams

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

Sienna Williams reflects on a recent directed study at the Institute on Aging (IOA). Williams worked with Jessica McCracken, the Arts Program Manager for the Center for Elders and Youth in the Arts (CEYA) and Bay Area artist, Eric Garcia to develop and facilitate creative movement classes for older adults. Classes were offered as alternatives to regularly scheduled group exercise programs. Theme development, physical story telling and music were integral in the development of each class. The experience Williams gained from this directed study prompted her design an upcoming psychological study. The study will measure exercise and creative self-efficacy levels ...

Labor, Vera Bauluz 2014 Claremont Colleges

Labor, Vera Bauluz

CGU MFA Theses

I make sacred objects from scratch, from ready mades, from industrial materials, and sometimes from trash or recycling. I treat those objects with love and reverence to embed them with essence and soul. I propose conversations with objects exquisitely executed, that question our social order and the machine, easily understood by everybody, although still challenging our understanding of contemporary art.

The placement of the work and the lighting, as fundamental part of the installation, attempts to generate strokes of conscience that enhance human understanding and capabilities beyond a specific discourse.

Humor and sacred coexist in my installation and in my ...


Partner – Translate – Impact: A Method For Public Interest Design In Architectural Education, Nadia M. Anderson 2014 Iowa State University

Partner – Translate – Impact: A Method For Public Interest Design In Architectural Education, Nadia M. Anderson

Architecture Conference Papers

Global financial systems, increased human mobility, and climate change are contemporary forces creating historic disparities between rich and poor, increased rural-to-urban migration, and frequent natural disasters. These conditions demand that architecture rethink its relationship with natural and built environments and the people who occupy them.


Instruction Design Towards The Promotion And Integration Of Movement In The Visual Arts Classroom, Kathryn B. Adams 2014 Rhode Island College

Instruction Design Towards The Promotion And Integration Of Movement In The Visual Arts Classroom, Kathryn B. Adams

Master's Theses, Dissertations and Graduate Research Overview

My research project focuses on the integration of movement into the visual arts classroom. I explore two questions: “How can the teaching of movement enhance and strengthen learning in Visual Art Education?” and then, “How can I design powerful Visual Art Education learning experiences by incorporating movement”? It is my hope to encourage students in the art classroom to become healthy, life-long learners by engaging the mind and body. This study explores ideas and strategies for integrating the teaching of art with movement for both Elementary and Secondary level students.


K-12 Students See Steam Everyday, Meghan Reilly Michaud 2014 Claremont Colleges

K-12 Students See Steam Everyday, Meghan Reilly Michaud

The STEAM Journal

Today’s students exist in a visual world. A new semiotic language has emerged in the digital age. It consists of an ever-evolving vocabulary of signs and symbols that one can rapidly decipher. Icons represent applications and functions on a plethora of modern devices. Sounds indicate changes and the start and end of activity. The exposure of new audio and visual media are part of everyday communication, now more than ever. The Arts teach our students to better perceive these cues and the information that they deliver.


Commentary - The Case For Humanistic Curriculum: A Discussion Of Curriculum Theory Applied To Art Education, Jeffrey L. Broome 2014 The Florida State University

Commentary - The Case For Humanistic Curriculum: A Discussion Of Curriculum Theory Applied To Art Education, Jeffrey L. Broome

Journal of Art for Life

In this article I explore what role art education might play in fostering caring and sensitive relationships and experiences for children, in some small way paving a path for a more harmonious society. I first describe systemic, academic, humanistic, and socially reconstructive curricular theories, and apply these theories to trends that have dominated art education over the last six or seven decades. In consideration of the recent accentuation on individual competition in U.S. schools and increasingly frequent reports of violence, bullying, and outbursts of public vitriol, I make an argument for a renewed emphasis on updated versions of humanistic ...


Fragments Of What? Postmodernism, Hybridity And Collage, David A. Gall 2014 The Florida State University

Fragments Of What? Postmodernism, Hybridity And Collage, David A. Gall

Journal of Art for Life

This paper argues that unresolved issues about identity affecting art historical and art education theory-practice are traceable to modernism’s anxiety about hybridity’s imagined threat to cultural purity and integrity. Postmodernism’s solution to modernist anxiety involved showing the fallacy of deriving identity from essences and exposing identity’s socially constructed origins. This advanced recognition of cultural plurality and relativity, but cast identity’s integrity as the effect of cultural imagination projected onto autonomous fragments. Fragments, however, presuppose wholes. A picture of integrated interrelated dynamic wholes is retrieved by reconceiving the concepts of hybridity and collage outside the dualistic ...


Drawing Their Way Into Writing: Culturally And Linguistically Diverse Students Finding Voice Through Mini-Novelas, Stephanie Wessels, Socorro G. Herrera, 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Drawing Their Way Into Writing: Culturally And Linguistically Diverse Students Finding Voice Through Mini-Novelas, Stephanie Wessels, Socorro G. Herrera,

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Writing can be a difficult task for many students in today’s classrooms; however, for students who are culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD), writing can be especially difficult. These students often are in the process of developing their facility with the English language, and they possess cultural backgrounds that differ from those of many of their peers and teachers. In addition to these challenges, they face the typical difficulties of selecting ideas to write about for their stories. One way to tap into the cultural backgrounds of Spanish-speaking CLD students is through the use of a strategy called the mini-novela ...


Cultivating High-Level Organizational Engagement To Promote Novel Learning Experiences In Steam, Chad Mote, Karen Strelecki, Kate Johnson 2014 Claremont Colleges

Cultivating High-Level Organizational Engagement To Promote Novel Learning Experiences In Steam, Chad Mote, Karen Strelecki, Kate Johnson

The STEAM Journal

Traditional partnerships in K-12 public education often produce low-level organizational engagement among its partners—one partner funds, the other uses the funds Typically a “partner in education” donates funds, which may benefit students through the purchase of new equipment, staff development experiences, or scholarships. In some cases, an organization may send an expert over to speak with the students about their field. This type of philanthropic outreach is indispensable for schools that need additional support and important for students to gain information from the “real world” but does not necessarily translate into deep, meaningful academic impact.


The Efficacy Of Mathematics Education, Eric Geimer 2014 Claremont Colleges

The Efficacy Of Mathematics Education, Eric Geimer

The STEAM Journal

Evidence supports the notion that mathematics education in the United States is inadequate. There is also evidence that mathematics education deficiencies extend internationally. The worldwide mathematics education deficit appears large enough that improving student performance in this educational problem area could yield great economic benefit. To improve the efficacy of mathematics education, education’s root problems must first be understood. Often supposed educational root problems are considered and contrasted against potential deficiencies of mathematics methodologies and curricula that are based on mainstream educational philosophies. The educational philosophies utilized to form early-grade mathematics methodologies and related curricula are judged to be ...

By

Brian Lewis

Adviser: Bethany Rogers

I seek to bring the literature of critical pedagogues, reflective practitioners in education and student-centered teachers to bear on a critical examination of my own teaching methods. I reflect on and analyze my past professional teaching and educational experiences, focusing primarily on utilizing Sekou Sundiata's Research to Performance Method to teach a course on Sekou Sundiata and the Black Arts Movement at the New School in New York City. Through my teacher self-study, I ...

Culture At Risk | Anthropological Evidence Of The 15 Intended Itaukei Tapa Cloth (Masi) Motifs Pre-Dating The Creation Of The Air Pacific/Fiji Airways Logo, Cresantia F. Koya Vaka'uta 2014 SelectedWorks

Culture At Risk | Anthropological Evidence Of The 15 Intended Itaukei Tapa Cloth (Masi) Motifs Pre-Dating The Creation Of The Air Pacific/Fiji Airways Logo, Cresantia F. Koya Vaka'uta

Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta

This short paper examines the history of Tapa (bark cloth) in order to show that the fifteen indigenous kesakesa designs (symbols) identified as trademark worthy by Air Pacific/Fiji Airways are a significant part of the cultural heritage of the iTaukei peoples of Fiji. It will also show that Tapa and the designs/motifs found within tapa are often shared cultural designs across the Pacific. The position taken is that all forms of cultural heritage expressions must remain the intellectual property of their indigenous owners from whom this knowledge, skills and art forms originate. The premise is that NO COMMERCIAL ...


Using Video Based Instruction To Teach Art To Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anthony W. Woodruff 2014 University of Kentucky

Using Video Based Instruction To Teach Art To Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anthony W. Woodruff

Theses and Dissertations--Art & Visual Studies

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders often do not respond to common pedagogical strategies and traditional in vivo teaching approaches. From my observations, students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders learn best when material is presented through technology. Based on the information found in the literature review and personal observations from working with students with special needs, when students with Autism Spectrum Disorders receive video based instruction by watching recorded art lessons, they may learn to develop artistic skills and retain more art content knowledge with greater success than through traditional teaching methods. The purpose of this research study is to test ...


Engaging Students In Art Beyond The K-12 School Environment, Melanie Ducharme 2014 Rhode Island College

Engaging Students In Art Beyond The K-12 School Environment, Melanie Ducharme

Master's Theses, Dissertations and Graduate Research Overview

This purpose of this thesis is to investigate a unit of instruction for a mural project with a community organization.

The question I sought to answer through this research was: How can I design a unit of instruction in collaboration with a local organization that will potentially engage students in a community-based work of art while also promoting a sense of community among the students?

Though this thesis research, I learned to collaborate with an organization to create a hypothetical unit of instruction. Also, I wanted to discover how I can create a learning experience that is engaging and personally ...


Exploring A "Mor-In-Touch" Approach To Art Teaching, Micaela E. Morin 2014 Rhode Island College

Exploring A "Mor-In-Touch" Approach To Art Teaching, Micaela E. Morin

Master's Theses, Dissertations and Graduate Research Overview

How can students be more in touch with their artistic process through materials, decisions, social interactions, and environment when creating a work of art about identity for a collaborative mosaic relief installation?

This thesis explored an opportunity for my students to work together to create a collaborative art installation in our high school. This was important to do because the school had just been recently renovated and the new environment felt devoid of any art or personality that once reflected its former students. The important factors behind the installation design were to bring the visual dialogue of community into the ...


Does Categorical Perception Interfere With Drawing Accuracy?, Larissa F. Arnold 2014 Iowa State University

Does Categorical Perception Interfere With Drawing Accuracy?, Larissa F. Arnold

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Drawing is a medium of expression engaged in by humans for centuries. However, very little research has been done on the drawing abilities of average adults. Some researchers (Cohen & Bennet, 1997; Thouless, 1931; Cohen & Jones, 2008) suggest that the way an object is perceived influences and disrupts a person's ability to draw that object accurately. The current experiments investigated whether participants are influenced by categorical coding of relations among the parts of an object and whether this categorical perception interfered with participants' drawing abilities. In experiment 1, we found that participants are influenced by categorical coding of the relative size of ...
