AE3100 - Curriculum and Assessment for Art Education

Credits: 3

The content and structure of the public school visual art curriculum at elementary, middle and secondary levels are examined as a major contributing factor to the educational development of all children. Following a review of the literature and an exploration of current best practices, a curriculum model and authentic assessment strategies are developed. Emphasis is placed on state and national standards in the visual arts and reflects state mandates on visual arts assessment in K-12 public education. Technology-based research methods are introduced. A 10 hour observation/participation component in the schools is required. Springs. Prerequisite(s): AE 3060.
