K-12 Students See Steam Everyday, 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.
Fragments Of What? Postmodernism, Hybridity And Collage, 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 ...
Commentary - The Case For Humanistic Curriculum: A Discussion Of Curriculum Theory Applied To Art Education, 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 ...
Cultivating High-Level Organizational Engagement To Promote Novel Learning Experiences In Steam, 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, 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 ...

Walking The Integration Talk: An Artsci Project, 2013 Western University
Walking The Integration Talk: An Artsci Project, Astrid Steele, Elizabeth L. Ashworth
The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
As teacher educators, we help prepare elementary generalist teacher-candidates (TCs) for traditional classrooms. In those classrooms, subjects are often taught in isolation rather than as integrated concepts and this practice is reflected in the program at the university where we teach art and science education. Because the world is multidimensional, interconnected, and complex, we created a project that integrates art and science learning as a way to prepare future teachers to provide relevant educational experiences for their students. Data, in the form of reflection papers prepared by the TCs, were analyzed using a grounded theory approach. Emergent topics resulted in ...
Hip-Hop, Medellín And Social Change, 2013 University of San Francisco
Hip-Hop, Medellín And Social Change, Veronica Henao Posada
This study explores the ways in which the Hip-hop movement is producing social change in Medellín, Colombia. Looking specifically at a Hip-hop school called Cuatro Elementos Skuela, which exists autonomously and with very little state support in the Medellín neighborhood of Aranjuez, I argue that young people are contributing to the reconstruction of the city’s social, cultural and economic fabric. I start by explaining the historical context of Medellín, describing the different sets of conflicts that unleashed high levels of violence and caused the fragmentation of the social, cultural and economic fabric. Moreover, I review the role of the ...
Art And Symbolism: The Technique Of Applying Hidden Meaning And Communicating Specific Ideas Through Art, Andrea C. Macbean
Senior Honors Papers
Symbolism is an artistic style frequently used in the arts. Through the course of art history, it was its own artistic movement as well. The incorporation of specific symbols, shapes, colors, or identifiable images communicates to the viewer an intended message or statement. Frequently, symbolism appears to be hidden or initially unperceived by the intended audience. In some works, symbolism is so abstract that it needs explanation or clarification to be understood completely by the viewer. This thesis will analyze a few techniques of symbolism that can be incorporated in a work of art to communicate truth, entice thought, point ...
A Case Study Investigating How Art Education Fosters Collaboration In An Urban Environment Through The Lens Of Public Pedagogy, 2013 E. H. Butler Library at Buffalo State College
A Case Study Investigating How Art Education Fosters Collaboration In An Urban Environment Through The Lens Of Public Pedagogy, Tracy Fox
Art Education Projects
This case study examines how one particular after-school arts program in an urban environment bridges the gap between a university campus and the community it serves, creating opportunities for collaboration via the arts. The study was conducted at a community center run by Buffalo State.
Over the course of the study, ten interviews were conducted with a variety of people connected to the Community Arts Center’s (CAC) arts programs, including partners in the public arts initiative. The data was collected and analyzed over the course of eight weeks through the lens of Henry Giroux’s public pedagogy, which focuses ...
A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating How Middle School Art Teachers In Urban And Suburban Settings Employ Aspects Of Multiculturalism, 2013 E. H. Butler Library at Buffalo State College
A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating How Middle School Art Teachers In Urban And Suburban Settings Employ Aspects Of Multiculturalism, Teresa J. Burgio
Art Education Projects
I began this qualitative study on multicultural education in the classroom because I wanted to find out how art teachers implement multiculturalism and also how students react. I also wanted to learn what resources are used and strategies for this type of teaching. I chose an urban middle school with a sixth grade art class and a suburban middle school with a seventh grade art class. I taught as a substitute at these schools and these teachers informed me they teach multiculturalism in the art room. Both teachers are experienced and have been teaching art for over 15 years ...
Emerging Views On Making: Fibre Graduates Reflect On Their Practice, 2013 SelectedWorks
Emerging Views On Making: Fibre Graduates Reflect On Their Practice, Kathleen Morris
This narrative research examines the ways in which craft is conceptualized from the perspective of five recent graduates from the Material Art and Design Fibre Program at a prominent Canadian art and design university. Recognizing the cultural currents that have excised acts of making, including Western de-industrialization and abundant access to offshore labour markets, this research looks at the role of maker within a new societal context. A nascent theoretical platform for craft, shaped by artists and academics, counters a dearth of voices that has characterized the field’s history. Here, craft is posited as a methodology, characterized by embodiment ...

Alterations: The Work Of The Altered Book Artist Miriam Schaer, 2013 The Florida State University
Alterations: The Work Of The Altered Book Artist Miriam Schaer, Laura Rachel Fattal
Journal of Art for Life
Book artist Miriam Schaer (b. 1956, Buffalo, New York) sees life experience as fodder for humor and heartbreak. As a mid-career artist, her work enhances an understanding of the human condition, in general, but more particularly that of feminism and childless women. Her altered books are fertile examples of social inquiry. As a book artist, her aesthetic perspectives explore unique aspects of scale, media and construction while responding to misogynic attitudes in contemporary society. Miriam Schaer’s books originate from a profound introspection of the inseparability of the heart, mind and body. Her work has become more complex over time ...
Improving Problem-Based Learning In Creative Communities Through Effective Group Evaluation, 2013 JTRP Technical Reports
Improving Problem-Based Learning In Creative Communities Through Effective Group Evaluation, Richard E. West, Greg S. Williams, David D. Williams
Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning
In this case study, we researched one cohort from the Center for Animation, a higher education teaching environment that has successfully fostered group creativity and learning outcomes through problem-based learning. Through live and videotaped observations of the interactions of this community over 18 months, in addition to focused interviews with nine key community leaders, we considered the evaluative culture and actions of this community, and how these evaluative practices improved their creative problem solving. We describe their evaluation practices in the context of principles derived from the Joint Committees’ Evaluation Standards (Yarbrough, Shulha, Hopson, & Caruthers, 2011), which are well-respected standards used by professional evaluators. Specifically, we found that problem-based learning strategies were successful in part because the community members (1) established a context and culture of high expectations, collaboration, and evaluation; (2) united the students, teachers, and ...

Visual Literacy (Grade 9-12): Art Today -- Course Description And Outline, 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Visual Literacy (Grade 9-12): Art Today -- Course Description And Outline, Kelli P. Dornbos
Theses, Student Research, and Creative Activity: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education
Process is hugely contrasting among all artists around the world. Each artist has their own way of developing a way of thinking, seeing and making to reach their need to get something out (or in simpler terms, create art). In this middle school art class, students will explore the different mediums of art with strict guidelines of craft and technique but freedom in the subject of what they can create on their own. It is important for 6th grade students to cooperate with each other to solve problems and create an identity through their own art making process. Dewey explains ...
Arts Education In An Urban School District: Principals' Perspectives And Practices In A Standards-Based Environment Coupled With An Economic Downturn, 2013 University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
Arts Education In An Urban School District: Principals' Perspectives And Practices In A Standards-Based Environment Coupled With An Economic Downturn, Kristin Ann Steinbach
Theses and Dissertations
This case study explored perspectives of urban principals towards the values of arts education within the context of accountability coupled with economic strain, which has worked to undervalue arts education, and has impacted urban students' access to quality arts education (Chapman, 2004 & 2005). Since differences in access to arts education has been drawn along differences in ethnic, racial and socioeconomic status, this was understood as a social justice issue (Theoharis, 2007). Specifically, this research addressed the roles of principals and investigated the research question:
How do urban principals and school leaders perceive the value of the arts within a climate of accountability and financial strain?
Informed by critical theory, this question was supplemented by the following attendant questions:
1a.) How do urban school leaders make decisions about offering arts education at their schools?
1b.) What do urban school leaders consider when they make these decisions?
2a.) How are urban school leaders maintaining access to arts education within a climate of accountability and financial strain?
2b.) To what extent are urban school leaders who are maintaining this access aware of the relationships between arts education and social justice?
Qualitative sources of data were collected including transcripts, observation notes and analytical memos. Participants included six urban, high school principals and additional staff members from three of the high schools.
Findings revealed that principals believed that students who participated in arts education were engaged, were able to enjoy and escape from the rest of the school day, and finally, were able to express themselves. Principals who valued arts education were able to maintain access to arts education on limited levels. Their decisions were largely guided by evaluation requirements, available resources and tradition. Principals supported the accountability movement and felt their schools were improving; however, principals also revealed that providing quality arts education remained a major challenge and indicated a need for more to be done. Although principals expressed a concern with social justice issues, most did not indicate an awareness of arts education curricula as a means to engage students in critical thinking or social activism that could challenge the status ...
Listening To Voices Of Exceptional Students To Inform Art Pedagogy, 2013 Western University
Listening To Voices Of Exceptional Students To Inform Art Pedagogy, Christina Yarmol
University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
This study explored the pedagogical practices that fostered engagement for seven participants with physical disabilities and in some cases multiple exceptionalities who successfully earned a credit in a high school Visual Arts course. It answered the key question: What can art educators learn from students' stories of art education that would better enable art educators to enact a pedagogy that engages students with disabilities in the Visual Arts classroom? A narrative inquiry methodology was employed to gather stories and art work from these key informants acting as active agents in their own storied responses that were triangulated with field notes ...
