Socially Engaged Art Projects With High School Students, Katherine Randall Apr 2019

Socially Engaged Art Projects With High School Students, Katherine Randall

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

There is research on the benefits of art classes beyond being a creative outlet, and it shows that art classes can be a good place to practice being a better citizen. This research shows that art classes teach skills that are beneficial to students in helping them become better citizens and connect with their community; especially when using socially engaging art projects. However, in the research there is a lack of the student view on completing a socially engaged art project and what they learned from it. The purpose of my research was to understand student perception of socially engaged ...


Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler Apr 2019

Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Disneyfication in theater means the increase in popularity of Disney plays and the resulting reshaping of modern plays to more resemble those of Walt Disney, in order to gain viewership. In most cases, this means a shift to a musical format featuring upbeat ballads and gaudy but family-friendly costumes. While many theatre elitists frown upon such trends, this project shows how Disneyfication fosters renewed interest and enjoyment in theatre across age groups. A case study of the Knox and Sevier County school systems in Tennessee examines patterns of interest and enjoyment in the nation’s most popular plays via snowball ...


Caddo Inspired Coil Pots, Jordan Weaver Apr 2019

Caddo Inspired Coil Pots, Jordan Weaver

Undergraduate Research Conference

When my bosses, John Handley and Alisa Steed, asked me to plan an educational program to go along with the upcoming Contemporary Caddo art show at the Cole Art Center I knew I wanted to find an art lesson to teach children. Creating is a great way to teach children about history because it invites them to take an active role in their education, rather than passively listening. After learning that traditional Caddo potters created coil pots out of clay, I knew I wanted to teach this art form to children in the community. Making coil pots requires children to ...


Second Grade Students Learn About Civil Engineers And Erosion, Andrea Anderson Apr 2019

Second Grade Students Learn About Civil Engineers And Erosion, Andrea Anderson

Annual Graduate Student Symposium

The integration of art into curricula focused on teaching science is a new perspective in education designed to reach a broader range of students. The current study examined the process of second-grade students participating in science and art activities through qualitative content analysis. The subjects of science and art were not taught to the students separately, rather, students engaged in both subjects simultaneously, in an integrated manner. Participants were 23 second-grade students (11 female and 12 male; age range 7 to 8 years) who were learning about erosion through sketching and creative construction and the work of civil engineers through ...

National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

Participants in this workshop will engage in ensemble building drama activities. These activities will lead to the creation of multiple pieces of drama. The participants will also develop a list of interview questions they can use if they choose to implement the project at their schools or organizations. Many of the activities are from Augusto Boal’s “Theatre of the Oppressed,” a genre of theatre born out of the necessities of people who experience oppression. It provides them tools to explore the oppression and ways to face it in the real world.

Target audience: Teachers at all levels; Principals and ...


Visual Arts In An Elementary School Classroom, Kathryn O'Connor Mar 2019

Visual Arts In An Elementary School Classroom, Kathryn O'Connor

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

It is more common nowadays to see a classroom lacking in any creative outlet for their students. Even at such a young, fundamental age funding has stood in the way of introducing the necessities the visual arts gift to students beginning at the age of four or five. With such a heavy push in the direction of academics such as math and reading the concept of imagination has been overpowered by multiplication and division and adjectives and verbs. With an increased fight by educators to promote the arts in their classrooms the benefits speak for themselves. When housing a creativity ...

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Arts-Inclusive Education in Nursing Schools: An Integrative Literature Review

Michelle Murtaugh, DePaul University

Category: Research Abstract

Background: Nursing educators have long recognized and championed the value of art within a professional nursing science curriculum, yet many nursing programs exclude the study of the arts. Research suggests that an arts-inclusive nursing curriculum not only enhances student learning, communication, self-efficacy, and clinical confidence, but also positively impacts patient outcomes. To address this gap between what is needed and what is currently offered, some schools are collaborating with art museums to offer arts-based courses in nursing sciences, designed to enhance students’ competency and ...

Visual Influence And Youth Empowerment, Rebecca A. Cote Mar 2018

Visual Influence And Youth Empowerment, Rebecca A. Cote

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

During adolescence, youth start to look outside of their spheres of family to explore the greater world and they are often left with visual media as the go-to source of information. Media images are contrived to provoke meaning through the use of signs and how they are presented and they manipulate images to impart messages. Youth need to be literate in visual language in order to discern the implied influence.


Fostering Student Engagement, Skills, And Connections Through Peer Review/Critique Across Disciplines, Jesse W. Schoaf, Summer Clark, Liv Cummins, Lisa Spitz, Katarina Keown, Linda Pursley, John Mccormick Mar 2018

Fostering Student Engagement, Skills, And Connections Through Peer Review/Critique Across Disciplines, Jesse W. Schoaf, Summer Clark, Liv Cummins, Lisa Spitz, Katarina Keown, Linda Pursley, John Mccormick

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

The process of peer review/critique in the college classroom is rife with challenges which may stem from a lack of commitment on the part of students and instructors alike, despite a significant body of literature which suggests peer review/critique can be an important learning tool. Studies demonstrate, when students are committed to the process, peer review can improve myriad skills, including written work (Topping, 1998, Mulder et al, 2014) and collaborative and communication skills (Topping, 2000, Topping, 2009, Mulder, R., Pearce, J., & Baik, C., 2014, Nicol, 2010), among many others. Our action research study documents how four undergraduate ...


Arts Based Brain Research, Alicia Arendt Mar 2018

Arts Based Brain Research, Alicia Arendt

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Art is believed to be “the expression or application of the human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their aesthetic value or emotional power” (Buk, 2009, p. 61). While there are a myriad of ways to define and categorize art, such a definition as the one above is useful as it touches upon three key areas of arts based brain research; artistic cognition, artistic production and aesthetic experience. The study of arts based brain science, or the neuroscience of art, demands an understanding of the interplay between these three facets of the artistic experience. Most ...

Utilizing A Historic Costume Collection For A Synergistic Educational Experience, Diana Saiki, Valerie J. Birk, Jah'shar Hardy-Brown

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

This teaching strategy was developed in collaboration with a local community group who worked with university faculty on an event that involved raising funds for their scholarship award and bringing awareness to the university collection. The activity culminated in a fashion show featuring historic garments from the university collection rolled down a runway on a dress form, followed by an original apparel design that was inspired by the historic piece and made by a university student. The fashion show was similar to a mid-20th century fashion show with commentary on the style features of each garment. Students agreed that ...


“Creating A Virtual Retail Store Using The Sims4™ Programs In A Visual Merchandising Course”, April Elisha Stanley, Corissa Hite, Jennifer Wood Jan 2018

“Creating A Virtual Retail Store Using The Sims4™ Programs In A Visual Merchandising Course”, April Elisha Stanley, Corissa Hite, Jennifer Wood

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

SnapFashun, a plugin software used in conjunction with Adobe Illustrator (SnapFashun, 2017), was previously used in a visual merchandising course to create a final project: a digital retail store. Due to technological problems and student frustrations, an alternative was chosen: The Sims4™ programs. The expectation was the change in technology would permit students to focus on applications of visual merchandising concepts and result in a more engaged, creative final project. YouTube videos and online guides aided in learning the software for The Sims4™ programs. The outcome was a digital retail store that permitted increased engagement, greater creativity, and the application ...


Benefits Of Dance Education In An Urban Kindergarten Classroom, Anna M. Veelman Apr 2017

Benefits Of Dance Education In An Urban Kindergarten Classroom, Anna M. Veelman

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

Arts Education can be a valuable intervention for students in an urban education setting. Teaching through the arts can act as a Tier One intervention for students who exhibit disruptive behavior due to trauma in the classroom. It has proven to also benefit classroom culture as a whole. Arts have a healing power that allows students to learn social-emotional regulation skills, body-awareness, and expression.

Dance specifically allows students to express their emotions as well as allow them to release energy as well as support student’s positive behavior in the classroom. Data were collected on 25 kindergarten students with a ...


Cultivating Engagement Through Student-Centered Learning In A High School Media Art Class, Dyane Goldman Apr 2017

Cultivating Engagement Through Student-Centered Learning In A High School Media Art Class, Dyane Goldman

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

Student-centered-learning is a broad term for an approach to education where students are independent, self-directed learners (Krueger, 2014). This active environment is invigorating, energizing and filled with students deeply engaged in the work at hand. Educators are leaning towards embracing methods that foster independence in their students and in turn, these methods are proving to be effective in cultivating an atmosphere of engagement in all types of learners.


This study assessed implementation of opportunities for self-directed learning, and evaluated student interest and engagement in classroom activities. A review of the literature indicates that adapting this approach can be effective in ...

The Benefits Of Music Education In The Mild To Moderate Special Education Classroom, Grades 3-5, Kimberly Lloyd

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

Though extensive studies exist regarding the use of the arts in general education settings, a comparable amount of research is still needed to support the need for the use of the arts in special education settings. This research project investigated how a once a week music class impacted 3rd-5th grade students with mild to moderate disabilities in developing their academic, social and behavioral goals as identified in their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). This qualitative research study utilized multiple data forms, including classroom observations of both music and non-music instruction and interviews with teachers, artists, and parents throughout the course of ...

The Benefits Of Music Education On Academic, Behavioral, And Communicative Skills With Middle School Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sarah V. Foley

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

Music education has an important place for students with special needs. Through community based arts education programs, student benefits range from social to academic. The problem is that too often music education, among arts programs, is not taught in special education classrooms. The purpose of this study was to identify benefits that music education has on students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), focusing specifically on academic, behavioral, and communicative skills.

A review of the literature revealed that music is beneficial to students in a variety of ways, when they are provided the opportunity to engage in music education. Through this ...
