Notes Toward A Theory Of Dialogue, Grace Deniston-Trochta, Jane Vanderbosch, Ed Check Jan 2000

Notes Toward A Theory Of Dialogue, Grace Deniston-Trochta, Jane Vanderbosch, Ed Check

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Multiple dimensions of dialogue as pedagogical practice are examined in the following three essays. In the first piece, “When Life Imitates Art: Notes on the Nature of Dialogue,” poet and essayist Jane Vanderbosch reflects about the politics of silence and voice in graduate school. She analyzes how power and politics charge the atmosphere of the classroom. In “The Pedagogy of Dialogue: A Relation Between Means and End,“ Grace Deniston-Trochta focuses on self-examining the possibility of dialogue in a large “pit” classroom. She proposes teacher as listener/learner, a teacher who is self-reflective and respectful. In the final essay, “Managing the ...


Roots/Routes As Arterial Connections For Art Educators: Advocating For Aboriginal Cultures, Rita L. Irwin Jan 1998

Roots/Routes As Arterial Connections For Art Educators: Advocating For Aboriginal Cultures, Rita L. Irwin

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Arterial and life connections for art educators. Arteries are muscular vessels carrying blood away from the heart to every part of the body, eventually bringing the blood back to the heart before venturing out again. Metaphorically, these pathways locate the heart as a home from which travel extends, repeatedly, expectantly as life itself. Symbolically, arterial connections pulsate with the notion of art, expressing art through life through art. To many people, and particularly Aboriginal peoples, art translated as cultural performance is found in the very pathways and bloodlines of their geographies and histories. However, these arterial connections are available to ...


A Mountain Cultural Curriculum: Telling Our Story, Christine Bellengee Morris Jan 1997

A Mountain Cultural Curriculum: Telling Our Story, Christine Bellengee Morris

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Jim Wayne Miller, professor of English at Western Kentucky University, declared that school children in West Virginia have more exposure to other cultures than they do to their own. His concern was that, “Lack of knowledge about the area’s history helps perpetuate negative stereotypes about the region’s mountain people” (Associated Press, 1994). If the Mountain Culture, to which many of the students belong, is not reflected in the curriculum, their identity, voice, heritage, history, and arts are censored and the Mountain Cultural youth are rendered invisible in their own state. Results from a survey of three elementary schools ...

Technological Revolution And The Black Studies Curriculum: A Course Proposal, Abdul Alkalimat Sep 1995

Technological Revolution And The Black Studies Curriculum: A Course Proposal, Abdul Alkalimat

Trotter Review

A technological revolution is changing the world. The computer is fast becoming the universal tool in all aspects of work, production and communication, and innovations in bio-technology are fast transforming agriculture and health. The main impact of this technological revolution has been to restructure the economy, both the centers of accumulation as well as the labor process. It is also restructuring the methods by which people communicate, form and maintain communities. In general, the objective basis of social life is being fundamentally changed.

This essay proposes a basic course that not only focuses on the technological revolution, but should be ...

Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey Jan 1994

Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Although the field of art education has, in recent years, acknowledged the prevalence of non-formal educational sites, our literature is divided on whether this trend poses an opportunity for cooperation and strength or a threat to the status of art as a school subject. This paper consults the literature of critical theory within the domains of art, education, and leisure studies in order to examine the relationship between formal and non-formal art education. First, it considers ways in which tradition conceptualizations of art, education, leisure, and work foster an acceptance of art as experience and knowledge to be gained outside ...


Developmental Models Of Artistic Expression And Aesthetic Response: The Reproduction Of Formal Schooling And Modernity, Karen A. Hamblen Jan 1993

Developmental Models Of Artistic Expression And Aesthetic Response: The Reproduction Of Formal Schooling And Modernity, Karen A. Hamblen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Developmental models of artistic expression have had a major influence on research and curriculum in art education. The purpose of this paper is to examine the characteristics and assumptions of artistic expression and aesthetic response developmental models. It is proposed that developmental models purported to be descriptive and to have widespread, if not universal, application are socially embedded and prescriptive of outcomes that are highly consistent with characteristics of formal schooling and with the values of modernity. Information for this theoretical study is based on selected literature on the following: (a) developmental models in art education, (b) characteristics of modernity ...


Premises, Promises, And A Piece Of Pie: A Social Analysis Of Art In General Education, Tom Anderson Jan 1992

Premises, Promises, And A Piece Of Pie: A Social Analysis Of Art In General Education, Tom Anderson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

It is argued that advocates of content-based art education and other art educators who are attempting to move art to the political center of general education are struggling against largely unrecognized social realities. The idea is developed that just as the art world occupies a marginal place in the larger society do does art education in the society's educational institutions. The roots of this marginalization are argued to be in contending; particularly the dearly held notions of creativity and originality which are at the heart of the art world, versus acquiescence and conformity which are held most dear within ...

Dbae And Clae, Nancy Johnson Jan 1989

Dbae And Clae, Nancy Johnson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The foundations upon which knowledge is organized and presented in both discipline-based and cultural literacy approaches to art education are addressed. It is argued that the foundations for these two approaches are a result of conflicting views on the standardization of curricula and the perceived need for achievement oriented evaluation; these in turn are reflective of a fundamental difference in beliefs and assumptions as to the nature of education.


Research For Existential Choice, Karen A. Hamblen Jan 1988

Research For Existential Choice, Karen A. Hamblen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Chet Bowers (1984) has developed a theory of how a critical consciousness of our cultural typifications can be developed through an in-depth and elaborated understanding of aspects of a given situation or problem. In this paper, his theory is applied to the role research plays in art education. It is proposed that our existential choices in art education are directly proportionate to the amount and complexity of the research we have available and the extent to which we understand and can apply this research for specific purposes. The lack of research in essential instructional areas as well as the lack ...


Values Examination In Art Curricula Construction From Owatonna To Today, Carol S. Jeffers Jan 1987

Values Examination In Art Curricula Construction From Owatonna To Today, Carol S. Jeffers

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In developing curricula and educational policy, arts educators must participate with students, parents and other members of the community in dialectic processes of values examination. Failure to do so can often result in the development of curricula and policies which send unintended and unacceptable signals about the purposes and importance of the arts in our society. A critical analysis of the Owatonna Art Education Project (1933- 38), together with a review of current curricula and educational policies indicate a need for the use of these processes, arts educators may be unaware of the signals that they are sending through curricula ...

The Arts, School Practice, And Cultural Transformation, Landon E. Beyer Jan 1984

The Arts, School Practice, And Cultural Transformation, Landon E. Beyer

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Attempts at articulating and instituting socially responsive programs in art education are heartening and long overdue. The work of the Caucus on Social Theory and Art Education and the Bulletin as a reflection of the issues dealt with by the caucus, are laudatory and provocative. I seek to further these efforts in this essay by: 1) elaborating the social context within which schools function, and detailing how the political, economic, and ideological interests our educational system serves affect school policy, organizational structures within education, and school practice generally; and 2) suggest how the arts may be an effective force in ...


A Critique Of Elliot Eisner’S Educating Artistic Vision, John Jagodzinski Jan 1983

A Critique Of Elliot Eisner’S Educating Artistic Vision, John Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Educating Artistic Vision is an "old" book written a decade ago. As such there are many aspects in it, I'm sure, Eisner would not accept today. Therefore, the critique is made by keeping his later works, particularly The Educational Imagination (1979), in mind. To begin, Eisner claims that there are two major justifications for the teaching of art, both of which he presents in an either/or fashion. First a contextualist justification is made by claiming that art satisfies social needs. From this perspective, the practice of art must be pragmatic: art as leisure, art as creative thinking, art ...
