‘Image’ / ‘I’ / ‘Nation’: A Cultural Mash-Up, Matthew Sutherlin, Amy Counts

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The term Un(precedent)ED conjures ‘images’ that have never been seen before in education. Too often in the classroom we focus on the classification of objects and practices. The metaphysical question “what is?” is important only in that it must be continually revisited. Through continual re-visitation, the question becomes “what can it be?” Unfortunately, the process of becoming through imagination is a practice that is often relegated to childish whimsy. Un(precedent)ED practice requires the (re)imaging of the current apparatus of education. Precedent is a standard or model that comes before a particular event or moment; components ...


(Pr)Obama Art & Propaganda: Un(Precedent)Ed Visual Collections Of Hope, Progress And Change? [Book Review], Kathleen Keys 2010 Boise State University

(Pr)Obama Art & Propaganda: Un(Precedent)Ed Visual Collections Of Hope, Progress And Change? [Book Review], Kathleen Keys

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Three of these books chronicle visual collections celebrating the nomination, candidacy, and election of Barack Obama. The fourth book explores one particular image from this Obama art movement. Together they document the recent outpouring of fine art, street art, graphic design and other visual work presented and distributed by artists, exhibitions, the Internet and other digital means, and establish a foundation for socially concerned inquiry, and for creating related art education opportunities.


Integrating Art And Literacy In The Elementary Classroom, Megan Kristine Sorensen 2010 University of Northern Iowa

Integrating Art And Literacy In The Elementary Classroom, Megan Kristine Sorensen

Honors Program Theses

This project is about arts integration in elementary classrooms, specifically the integration of visual art and literacy. Its purpose is to examine the benefits of art integration and the ways it is currently being utilized in the classroom, both positively and negatively, in order to provide current and future teachers with a practical model for integrating instruction. As a pre-service teacher, I have spent time in a variety of classrooms observing the learning and instruction that is occurring therein. From these experiences I have discovered that art and content area learning are treated as two separate events. I see this ...


Art And Memory: An Examination Of The Learning Benefits Of Visual-Art Exposure, James Tyler Rosier 2010 Georgia Southern University

Art And Memory: An Examination Of The Learning Benefits Of Visual-Art Exposure, James Tyler Rosier

Electronic Theses & Dissertations

Past research has indicated that art education can be beneficial to students' education, possibly through beneficial effects related to learning and memory. Although some prior research has explored effects of art education for children, relatively little research has investigated beneficial effects of art in relation to adult learners. The aim of the current study was to explore whether a beneficial relationship exists between art and memory for adults in the context of an experimental study. Participants were randomly assigned to one of four conditions: Engaging in creative art, viewing art, discriminating among visually presented shapes, and writing a description of ...


A National Labor Project: Recovering Unprecedented Numbers Of Working Class Lives And Histories Through Art, Ed Check 2010 Texas Tech University

A National Labor Project: Recovering Unprecedented Numbers Of Working Class Lives And Histories Through Art, Ed Check

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I consider this essay an initial mapping where I reconstruct multiple ways of knowing and understanding the lived realities and plights of workers, whether they are manual workers, teachers or artists (Zandy, 2004). I use autobiography from a perspective of Standpoint Theory where I use the lives of working people as theory, method and evidence. I speak from my standpoint of my experiences as being raised white working class and my shift in salary and education to middle class.


Globalization, Culture, And Communication: Proposal For Cultural Studies Integration Within Higher Education Graphic Design Curriculum, Brooke Scherer 2010 Iowa State University

Globalization, Culture, And Communication: Proposal For Cultural Studies Integration Within Higher Education Graphic Design Curriculum, Brooke Scherer

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The late twentieth century was a time of great change. The advent of Internet connectivity and the World Wide Web dramatically redefined the way all humans live and communicate. Where cross-cultural interaction, relationships, and business practices once existed primarily for the wealthy and powerful, we now find these opportunities readily available to all. One major area that has been greatly affected by this transformation is the field of graphic design. Practitioners in graphic design, for the first time, find themselves in a position to work with an international clientele and to design for global audiences. As a result of these ...


Editorial: Un(Precedent)Ed, Robert Sweeny 2009 Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Editorial: Un(Precedent)Ed, Robert Sweeny

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The 30th Volume of The Journal of Social Theory in Art Education is unprecedented, in many ways. First the theme is unprecedented, or, rather, Un(predecedent)ED. This typographical wordplay, quite common throughout the history of JSTAE, troubles habitual readings of the term, allowing for interpretations that open up possibilities, however brief, for new forms of research, theorizing and artmaking. These are just a few of the interpretations of the volume theme, which each of the authors addresses in a unique manner. Some approach the theme head on, while others choose a more oblique angle of analysis and exploration. Some ...

Proposal For A New Method For Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills, Aspasia Dania, Vasiliki Tyrovola, Maria Koutsouba

Aspasia Dania

During the period of acquisition and first practice of movement skills, learning becomes more effective when various sensory channels are used. According to the Dual Coding Theory, students as learners code both visually and verbally incoming information into knowledge that can be stored and retrieved for subsequent use. The aim of the present study is the proposal of a new method for the teaching of fundamental motor skills that will be depended on a visual coding of movement information. Particularly, the morphological method for the analysis of dance is the proposed method according to which graphic visual symbols will be ...
