How Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Evidence-Based Practices, And Focusing On The Long Term Benefits Of Art Education Affect Teaching, Genevieve Hardin
Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects
This Action Research Project will be informed by INTASC standards. These standards make sure that teachers are held to rules that encourage good teaching and act as borders in which that good teaching should take place. It is also informed by my own philosophy of education. It is difficult to pin down any one philosophy of education that I unequivocally support. The conclusion that I have come to is that the best teaching is more an amalgamation of theories. It shifts and evolves to fit the students at hand, and is ever growing.
My focus for this research was how ...
Pop/Art: The Birth Of Underground Music And The British Art School, 1960–1980, 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Pop/Art: The Birth Of Underground Music And The British Art School, 1960–1980, Andrew Cappetta
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
“Pop/Art: The Birth of Underground Music and the British Art School, 1960-1980” argues that the British art school became a training ground for underground musicians in the 1960s and the 1970s because of changes in art school pedagogy and policy in the post-war period. New educational philosophies propagated during the late 1950s and 1960s, above all Basic Design and Behaviorism, redefined the artist as an intermedial experimenter, collapsed distinctions between fine art and design, and theorized the art object as a dynamic and interactive matrix between the maker and viewer. These initiatives, which evolved from art school reforms that ...

An Embodied Drama Therapy Approach To Restorative School Practices: A Method, 2022 Lesley University
An Embodied Drama Therapy Approach To Restorative School Practices: A Method, Sarah Harmer
Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses
Restorative School Practices offer schools a circle structure to shift the punitive mindset and power dynamics commonly found in America’s schools, to a model that focuses on relationship, connection, and mutual respect. Drama therapy interventions utilize embodied or active work that engage the entire person. The purpose of this thesis was to create a method to explore the addition of embodied drama therapy techniques to deepen the experience of the restorative school circle process. Three community-building and social emotional learning focused circles, in a second, fourth, and sixth grade class, were compared using the traditional scripts and then the ...

The environment you grow up in can become a pivotal part of your existence. The sights, smells, people, and places you experience every day can transform the way you see the world. Growing up in a Mexican-American household has brought its own set of experiences that have made me the artist I am today. I am one of many contemporary artists building on the foundations of their heritage and the Chicano movement. I am also a Mexican-American artist expanding the identity and extending the legacy in the 21st century. This paper will investigate how Mexican-American heritage has influenced my artistic ...
Sharing Walks As A Witnessing Practice: Exploring Movement-Based Pedagogies, 2022 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Sharing Walks As A Witnessing Practice: Exploring Movement-Based Pedagogies, Catalina Hernandez-Cabal
How we walk—or our inability to do so—is telling of who we have been. I propose this simple movement practice as a pedagogical engagement with the concept of faithful witnessing, which refers to attending to modes of power unbalance that might go unnoticed, and to people's creative and resistant possibilities (Lugones, 2003; Figueroa-Vásquez, 2015). This activity is suggested to provoke reflections about how we understand and experience social difference and power unbalances. The work introduces a simple score (a creative prompt) to explore walking-with others, creating instructions to teach others our movement, learning others', and delving into ...

As of December 2019, an estimated 300,000 excess probable depressive cases and 810,000 suspected PTSD cases were associated with the 2019–20 social unrest. Furthermore with the pandemic, the hopelessness manifested in the city and citizen’s mental wellbeing are of extreme concern. Given the ...
Food Insecurity Among Niu College Students, 2022 Northern Illinois University
Food Insecurity Among Niu College Students, Hannah Schaumberg
Many people with certain privileges never notice them, because they are so fixated on the hasty generalizations of what is seen on the surface rather than the interior aspects. For many students, understanding and recognizing privileges is the main concept to understanding their surroundings. The concept of reflecting on their interactions and knowledge of food insecurity will be curasol among communities. By researching the concepts of food insecurities among NIU students, we can bring awareness of the topic within society. The focus is to understand which intersectional groups are affected by food insecurity and to bring awareness of the subject ...

A Model For Equity In Arts Education For Youth In Greater Portland, Maine, 2022 University of Southern Maine
A Model For Equity In Arts Education For Youth In Greater Portland, Maine, Catherine Scheirer
Thinking Matters Symposium
Time and time again, by providing an outlet that allows innate human creativity to roam free, participation in arts activities such as dance, music, theatre, and visual arts is proven to have significant positive impacts on participants, regardless of age, experience, or background. Even though the arts have been acknowledged as critical for mental, physical, and emotional health, especially for children and adolescents, research has found that providing arts education in an equitable and culturally appropriate way is fraught with barriers. In addition, certain areas of the arts have seen a downward trend in educational priority and availability. My project ...
Creating A Classroom Culture, 2022 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Creating A Classroom Culture, Molly Cahill
Throughout my academic and creative life I have been in many different kinds of classrooms each possessing different values and practices. The art classroom for me was a place of exploration and play, arguably its chief and most important purpose. My thesis seeks to explore how art teachers can foster a creative classroom culture in which students are pursuing some form of expression and how art educators can engage with their students on an equal level and create together. I will also explore how the teacher as a practicing artist can further support and supplement this classroom culture. My thesis ...
Using Art Education To Cultivate Self-Efficacy And Divergent Thinking, 2022 California State University, San Bernardino
Using Art Education To Cultivate Self-Efficacy And Divergent Thinking, Julian Flores Rubalcaba
Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations
The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of an art teacher implementing art education with creative learning principles to cultivate students’ creative self-efficacy and divergent thinking at one middle school in the Inland Empire located in Southern California. The research continues to focus on how self-efficacy and divergent thinking cultivate through the process of art creation through project-based learning (Puente-Díaz & Cavazos-Arroyo, 2017). An art education is not a requirement for students to receive throughout their PK-12 general education in low socioeconomic schools due to an emphasis on the general education curriculum to focus on high-stakes standardized testing (Wexler, 2014). For students in California, one art course is a requirement to graduate from high school (California Department of Education, 2020). The framework of this study uses critical race theory and critical pedagogy to examine students in low socioeconomic communities and inequitable opportunities to cultivate self-efficacy and divergent thinking when compared to more affluent communities (Puente-Díaz & Cavazos-Arroyo, 2017; Reichelt et al., 2019).

How Rhythm Affects Prosody, 2022 University of Mary Washington
How Rhythm Affects Prosody, Mckenzie Ward
Student Research Submissions
Music interventions and how they benefit reading fluency have been researched, but there is more to be done in discovering the benefits of rhythm and prosody. This quantitative research study looked at how rhythm-based interventions affect student prosody in a second-grade classroom. Data were gathered from a music experience survey, a prosody pre-assessment, and a prosody post-assessment. The music intervention in this study involved three rhythm-based interventions called “DeeDee games.” This research analyzed and compared the growth between the prosody pre-and post-assessments and the results between students with musical backgrounds and students without musical backgrounds. This study found insufficient evidence ...
Exploring The Relationship Between Art And Environmental Education, 2022 Bowling Green State University
Exploring The Relationship Between Art And Environmental Education, Mackenzie Haynes
To explore the relationship between art and environmental education, I created a lesson plan and then put into practice at Crim Elementary School in a 4th grade art class. The art project had to do with the environment, endangered animals and recyclable materials. I titled the project "Habitat Heroes" and students had to imagine that they were the only people left on Earth along with a few animals and lots of trash. They were tasked with selecting an endangered animal in Ohio from one of five different groups (mammals, birds, reptiles/amphibians, birds and fish) to create a habitat for ...

Ungrading In Art History: Grade Inflation, Student Engagement, And Social Equity, 2022 Utah Tech University
Ungrading In Art History: Grade Inflation, Student Engagement, And Social Equity, Lauren Disalvo, Nancy Ross
Art History Pedagogy & Practice
Traditional academic pedagogies require that professors assign students grades in a system that creates hierarchies of power of professor over student. This system assumes that grades serve as an intrinsic motivator for students to improve in an academic setting. Many studies suggest that professor-assigned grades do not function as assumed. This article explores one alternative to the traditional system, known as ungrading, a practice whereby students assign themselves grades after a semester of frequent feedback and reflective assignments. This study offers a thematic literature review of ungrading in many disciplines and a small study of ungrading in upper-division art history ...
The Music Bluetooth Controller: An Intersection Between Technology And Music, 2022 Liberty University
The Music Bluetooth Controller: An Intersection Between Technology And Music, Lydia Wu
Senior Honors Theses
The modern musician faces a new challenge: how can technology be used to enhance a performance? This thesis documents the development of a Bluetooth remote controller that will aid today’s performing musicians by interacting with a digital display (e.g., an iPad) to flip musical score pages remotely. At its core, while mimicking a Bluetooth pedal (the current industry standard), this device attaches to the musician’s hand. In its pilot stages, the device has been referred to “MBC” (Music Bluetooth Controller).
