EDT 4037 - Methods for Teaching Secondary Visual Arts


(3)

This methods course introduces the study to the theory and practice of teaching visual arts in secondary schools. Content is designed to address content areas of the California Visual Arts Standards in middle and high schools. Topics include the following: instructional planning and classroom management, selection and classroom application of various forms of technology, evaluation and questioning techniques, state and national content standards and assessments, research methods, professional organizations (National Association of Art Educators), and the inclusive classroom. Each candidate develops a unit of instruction suitable for a secondary level classroom. Each candidate is required to prepare a final portfolio of the work in the course. This course includes intentional practice of classroom management, active and equitable participation for culturally, ethnically, linguistically and academically diverse learners, lesson planning, and formative assessment to differentiate instruction for all learners. Modifications for diverse learners and learners with exceptionalities are researched. (Equivalent to Art 4055 Visual Arts in the Classroom II, (3). PLNU candidates who complete EDU4037 or Art 4055 are exempt from taking EDU 6027  for their preliminary single subject credential program but need to replace it with three units of graduate level elective for the MAT degree.)
