Attitudes Of Three Urban Appalachian Teenagers Toward Selected Early Modern American Paintings, Bonnie Southwind Jan 1986

Attitudes Of Three Urban Appalachian Teenagers Toward Selected Early Modern American Paintings, Bonnie Southwind

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Three urban Appalachian teenagers were taken individually into an exhibit of early modern American art in the Cincinnati Art Museum. They were asked to choose one work that they wished to discuss. When the choice was made, they were asked to discuss the work, first freely and then directed by a set of questions. All three chose paintings in realistic styles that were of subjects familiar to them. Their discussions were limited by their level of training, but were otherwise perceptive and insightful. The act of choosing, the painting chosen, and the way it was discussed all seemed to both ...


The Pervasiveness Of Culture: Significance For Art Education, Barbara A. Boyer Jan 1986

The Pervasiveness Of Culture: Significance For Art Education, Barbara A. Boyer

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Much of what we learn, we are not aware of -- it is at a taken-for-granted level. This learning is so embedded in our thinking and behavior that even as educators we are often unable to work with or examine these cultural beliefs and assumptions in our teaching and social interactions. In this paper, it is proposed that art educators identify the pervasiveness of culture particularly within educational settings and how cultural attitudes related to art are internalized with in society and affect the teaching/learning process.


Various Applications Of The Feldman Method, Jack Hobbs Jan 1986

Various Applications Of The Feldman Method, Jack Hobbs

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The way I see the Feldman Method is as a teaching technique and not as a research tool. The reason I even mention this is that apparently others use it as a research tool. I suppose it could be used that way, but I don't see it that way. I certainly agree, however, that art educators need to do a great deal of homework concerning society, sociology, and art history, especially those art educators who subscribe to the viewpoints of the Caucus - -I imagine many of you in here are sympathetic to the Caucus . We're certainly obligated to ...

Using Music To Teach Spanish, Isabel Lowrie Childs Jan 1986

Using Music To Teach Spanish, Isabel Lowrie Childs

MA TESOL Collection

The purpose of this project is to discuss different ways for teachers to use songs in language class, specifically in Spanish classes. The paper contains three sections for beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.

At the beginning of each of the three sections I have written an introduction stating why the songs are appropriate for that level. Each song also has an introduction consisting of a title page which includes a brief description and comments on why I chose the song. Each song is presented with a breakdown of all the lexical items and grammatical structures found in the song. Following ...


Preface And Table Of Contents Jan 1986

Preface And Table Of Contents

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This is the sixth annual publication of the Caucus. Having begun in 1981, we have the good fortune to be coordinated with the times, six in eighty-six. But, more importantly, this issue of the Bulletin demonstrates that our interests are also coordinated with the times. Aesthetic response is central to a majority of the papers and, appropriately, the socially concerned perspective taken by the authors places the audience, the person or persons responding to art, at the center.


Issues Posed By The Study Of Folk Art In Art Education, Kristin G. Congdon Jan 1986

Issues Posed By The Study Of Folk Art In Art Education, Kristin G. Congdon

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The study of folk art processes and products reveals several issues concerning the study of art and our educational methodologies. This paper will address the following issues and how they relate to the field of art education: (a) the learning process which takes place in folk art settings and the notion of the folk artist as educator; (b) aesthetics, art criticism, and art history from the folk artist's perspective; (c) the many functions of art and the value of one function over another in our society; and (d) the existence of elitism in folk art categorization by academics.


Children’S Views On Art In The Primary Grades, K-3, Nancy R. Johnson Jan 1986

Children’S Views On Art In The Primary Grades, K-3, Nancy R. Johnson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This study examined some of the kinds of know ledge that primary students have regarding art. Approximately one hundred students participated in the study. The researcher visited their classrooms, sat among them, and interviewed them as they did their art work. Although the students appeared to have an accurate grasp of the methods for working with art media, they were not very knowledgeable about ways to judge art. At all grade levels, the students' knowledge was somewhat inconsistent and not articulated very well. The students exhibited both unique meanings and socially shared meanings in their discourse and confirmed the importance ...

Seeing Eye To I: Perceptual Development And Sense Of Self, Charles G. Wieder, Mary Ann C. Gray Jan 1986

Seeing Eye To I: Perceptual Development And Sense Of Self, Charles G. Wieder, Mary Ann C. Gray

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This paper is a commentary on current views of early development in art and argues for a theory which emphasizes a more active role of the learner in the refinement of perceptual ability, particularly in drawing development. Independent perception is presented as a primary source of children's visual imagery: and inference and problem solving, rather than imitation, are seen to characterize the drawing process as well as to indicate proper methods of instruction. Discussion also considers the shift away from inquiry in this area.
