Wisdom, Intelligence, And Creativity Synthesized., Susan Daniels May 2005

Wisdom, Intelligence, And Creativity Synthesized., Susan Daniels

Wisdom in Education

Wisdom, as explored by Sternberg is the application of successful intelligence and creativity. For thirty years, Dr. Sternberg has been a vocal critic of narrow conceptions of intelligence. In this recent work, he argues that a more comprehensive view of intelligence must go beyond the psychometrically based, IQ-driven views predominant in the last century.

Taking In: 2005, Aib Students Apr 2005

Taking In: 2005, Aib Students

Taking In

This book is the third edition in the Taking In: series. As was the case in Taking In: I and II, the work, dedication, detail, and graphic design is extraordinary and impressive. The work submitted by our students, and selected by our distinguished judges, reflects the eclectic vision, visual intelligence, perception, and promise of a talented student body. During this first year as a class, Taking In: worked through twice as many submissions than the previous years in half the amount of time. The stable class structure allowed a dependable process to support creativity and enabled the students, as artists ...


Schema Theory In The Interior Design Studio, Lori A. Brunner Mar 2005

Schema Theory In The Interior Design Studio, Lori A. Brunner

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

Gallini (1989) argues that, “the ability to combine a collection of problems into a meaningful representation, or schema facilitates learning” (p. 244). More specifically, Chan (1990) reports, “that the ability of organizing and applying schemata determines a designer’s ability” (p. 78). The purpose of this study was to measure the impact and effectiveness of a conceptual advanced organizer, a database/analysis card model, in the interior design studio. The effectiveness characteristics were examined from four main areas of a design project: 1) organization of information, 2) categorization of information, 3) application of theory, and 4) overall design. The following ...


What A Difference A Play Makes: An Examination Of Factors Influencing Personal Development Benefits Through Involvement In Extracurricular Theatre, Ronald Leslie Sproston Mar 2005

What A Difference A Play Makes: An Examination Of Factors Influencing Personal Development Benefits Through Involvement In Extracurricular Theatre, Ronald Leslie Sproston

Theses

The research investigates the personal development benefits to students of involvement in a particular extracurricular activity (student theatre). It examines aspects of student personal development that are promoted by involvement in this extracurricular activity and discusses factors within the activity that encourage or promote these results. It does this through its focus on participants' perceptions of what happens in the group, in terms of personal development and events and actions that affected that personal development. The extracurricular theatrical activity that is the focus of this study takes place annually in a regional Catholic co-educational secondary college in Victoria, Australia. It ...

Toward Art-Making As Liberatory Pedagogy And Practice: Artists And Students In An Anti-Bullying School Reform Initiative, Sharon Verner Chappell Jan 2005

Toward Art-Making As Liberatory Pedagogy And Practice: Artists And Students In An Anti-Bullying School Reform Initiative, Sharon Verner Chappell

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I sit at my desk for the last thirty minutes before driving to school where I will teach a painting lesson on abstract art. I am an after school visual arts intervention teacher who travels among ten K-6 urban schools in the Bay Area of California. When I am not on campus, I am working at the district office coordinating visiting artist programs and developing integrated arts curriculum. Yet each day, I notice an increasing disconnect between my duties as a teacher and my own arts practice. My painting, collage, and drawing lessons look just like the ones in the ...


Abu Ghraib: (Un)Becoming Photographs: How Can Art Educators Address Current Images From Visual Culture Perspectives?, Nancy Pauly Jan 2005

Abu Ghraib: (Un)Becoming Photographs: How Can Art Educators Address Current Images From Visual Culture Perspectives?, Nancy Pauly

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

On Friday, May 7, 2004 the front page of The New York Times contained two photographs and a headline: "From Picture of Pride to Symbol of Abuse" (Dao, 2004, p.1). In the top photograph Lynndie R. England appears in 2003, smiling, standing in a relaxed family setting, and wearing a blue" Authentic USA" hooded sweatshirt with red and white lettering. Until early May that photo had been displayed in the Mineral County West Virginia Courthouse with other photographs of local soldiers stationed in Iraq.


Visual Culture Explorations: Un/Becoming Art Educators, Wanda B. Knight, Karen Keifer-Boyd, Patricia M. Amburgy Jan 2005

Visual Culture Explorations: Un/Becoming Art Educators, Wanda B. Knight, Karen Keifer-Boyd, Patricia M. Amburgy

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

What we consider to be obvious, true, or commonsense depends on the various assumptions we hold. Becoming aware of our assumptions is difficult at best. Despite our belief that we know what our assumptions are, we are hindered by the fact that we are using our own interpretive filters to become knowledgeable of our own filters. Described as a "cognitive catch-22,” it is the equivalent of our trying to see the back of our head while looking directly into a mirror (Brookfield & Preskill, 1999). Becoming critical requires that we find a mirror that critically reflects our thinking and reveals our ...


Un/Becoming Digital: The Ontology Of Technological Determinism And Its Implications For Art Education, Alison Colman Jan 2005

Un/Becoming Digital: The Ontology Of Technological Determinism And Its Implications For Art Education, Alison Colman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Artists have been experimenting with analog and digital technologies since the 1960's; early examples include Billy Khiver's Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) and Nam June Paik (1966). While countless artists have since made highly innovative use of new media such as the computer, artificial intelligence (AD, biotech, the Internet and the World Wide Web, LED, motion capture, gesture tracking, CPS, open source, and robotics, artist/ theorists such as Penny (1995), Lovejoy (1997), Weibel (1996; 2001) and Wilson (2002) have cautioned against appropriating deterministic engineering models underlying such technologies.(l)These models, predominant in commercial industry ...


Images: An Unbecoming Child: A (Per)Verse Growth Chart, Kevin Tavin Jan 2005

Images: An Unbecoming Child: A (Per)Verse Growth Chart, Kevin Tavin

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Within silhouettes of male and female figures, cut out in the space between two walls, are chemically transferred images from (Spectral traces of) photos in my life-adulthood to childhood. These are representations of d(evolved) (dis)solutions to the crisis between my / self and other(s). The growth chart is reversed and perverse with the marking and masking of my maleness/femaleness. It is (the) unbecoming of me.


Identity Politics Of Disability: The Other And The Secret Self, Alice Wexler Jan 2005

Identity Politics Of Disability: The Other And The Secret Self, Alice Wexler

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Ambivalence with severe physical and mental abnormality runs deep in pedagogy, but it is only a reflection of an historical ambivalence in western culture. By analyzing institutionalized behaviors towards, and assumptions about, disability in art and education, I hope to speak to the theme of the journal, which is "(Un)becoming." For at least a century individuals with severe physical disabilities have been derided as freaks, while for two decades of youth counterculture, the same term denoted a rite of passage. Individuals who exhibit their disability professionally want to be called performers or entertainers, while the Mothers of Inventions' first ...


In The Realm Of The “Real”: Outsider Art And Its Paradoxes For Art Educators, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 2005

In The Realm Of The “Real”: Outsider Art And Its Paradoxes For Art Educators, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In this essay I want to argue that un (becoming) is a word much like Freud's (1919) discussion of the word unheimlich (uncanny), which reveals a secretive and clandestine aspect of art that art educators must and should concern themselves with, since it identifies a "realm of the Real" whose abjection legitimates our very practice at its expense. It marks a return of the repressed. Un (becoming), like Freud's uncanny is visual art's non-reflected double as I attempt to show. This is the issue I wish to raise when it comes to the question of so-called "Outsider ...


Stranger Within, Anniina Suominen Jan 2005

Stranger Within, Anniina Suominen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I base my teaching philosophy on the continuous self-directed learning of an individual. My goal is to help my students to learn to problematize their perception, their ways of thinking, their understanding of themselves, and their satisfaction with achieved learning goals. I support my students in their journeys of becoming critical searchers and inquirers of knowledge, visuality, and perceived reality. Although it is apparent they have learned to question authority and pre-given role and behavior models, I watch them searching for shortcuts for the answers within the complex structure of too many potential solutions.

Editorial: The Paradoxes Of Un(Becoming), Jan Jagodzinski, Bill Wightman Jan 2005

Editorial: The Paradoxes Of Un(Becoming), Jan Jagodzinski, Bill Wightman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Un(becoming) is one of those adjectival words in the Merriam Webster dictionary that holds the tension of its own contradiction. Its synonyms seem to summon an endless array of descriptive abjections: unsuitable, unflattering, unappealing, undesirable, unfitting, out of place, unfit, tasteless, malapropos, unseemly, indecorous, inappropriate, unsuitable. We need not go on to get the point. Becoming, on the other hand, appears entirely positive. It denotes well chosen, tasteful, presentable, welcoming, excellent, graceful, acceptable, agreeable, attractive, effective, and so on; in short, all that which is familiar, acceptable and beautiful. Un(becoming) is, therefore, purposefully presented as a portmanteau word ...


(Un)Becoming Working Class? Living Across The Lines, Ed Check Jan 2005

(Un)Becoming Working Class? Living Across The Lines, Ed Check

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I am writing this piece as a white self-identified gay male raised working class associate professor in art who is actively reconnecting with my past/roots, trying to better understand my sense of isolation in academe and my slowly seething anger directed at many of my academic colleagues. By working class I mean 2nd and 3rd generation Polish-American, devout Catholic, white privilege, contractor father, housewife mother, large family, in and out of poverty at times, racist with no real information. By academe I mean working for six years to achieve and be granted tenure at Texas Tech University in visual ...


(Un)Becoming Queer/(Un)Becoming Lgbtic, Kimberly Cosier, Laurel Lampela, Susan Marie De La Garnica, James Sanders, Deborah L. Smith-Shank, Mindi Rhodes, Jessie Whitehead Jan 2005

(Un)Becoming Queer/(Un)Becoming Lgbtic, Kimberly Cosier, Laurel Lampela, Susan Marie De La Garnica, James Sanders, Deborah L. Smith-Shank, Mindi Rhodes, Jessie Whitehead

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This article is one result of an ongoing dialogue among a number of members of the LGBTIC/Queer Caucus. The dialogue has taken place primarily through a torrent of e-mails, but also through a number of emotionally charged telephone calls. It began as a friendly, (perhaps naively) simple idea -to turn members' viewpoints about changing the name of our caucus, from "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Issues Caucus" to "Queer Issues Caucus" into an article. What began with good will and a fervent hope for understanding, at times turned into vitriol and contention -volleys of world views, personal identities, and ...


Visual Culture And Teenage Girls: Unraveling “Cultural” Threads Tied To “Self” And “Other”, Carrie Markello Jan 2005

Visual Culture And Teenage Girls: Unraveling “Cultural” Threads Tied To “Self” And “Other”, Carrie Markello

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Visual culture is prevalent in almost every aspect of our lives. We take photos with our cell phones, read magazines brimming with full color images, visit art museums, download streaming video, watch MTV, and scan street signs to find our favorite fast food restaurant. One hundred years ago, except for visiting art museums and reading magazines, these activities were nonexistent. As the twentieth century progressed, visual culture has increasingly been disseminated through new technological developments. In the sixties, Marshall McLuhan forecasted the impact of media upon our changing world. "The medium or process, of our time-electronic technology-is reshaping and restructuring ...


Images: Unbecoming War: Becoming Witness And Scribe, Deborah Smith-Shank Jan 2005

Images: Unbecoming War: Becoming Witness And Scribe, Deborah Smith-Shank

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

My artwork, called Wargoddess: Shock&Awe, positions me as a Witness and a Scribe. I cut pictures of my family into small pieces and pasted these people I love without reservation around the goddess. I wrote and pasted words. I pasted the map of Iraq on her stomach and made Baghdad her belly button. As I worked, I wondered whose side god[dess] is on and why anyone could possibly think that s/he took sides.


Community Pedagogy In Idaho, Kathleen Keys Jan 2005

Community Pedagogy In Idaho, Kathleen Keys

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The following pages chronicle a diverse collage of recent un(becoming) and becoming events from arts policy realms, as well as issues, events and programming in the Idaho arts community. Throughout the narration and description, critical analyses of these actual events, and the articulated and sometimes hidden pedagogies of these situations are measured against the criteria of community pedagogy. Rather than examining un(becoming)/becoming as a simple binary, the complexity of evaluating these events as either or both is presented when appropriate. Strong motivation to recognize social change and justice efforts through exercised community pedagogy nonetheless leads the evaluation ...


“People Should Come To Work”: Un-Becoming Cartesian Subjects And Objects In Art Education, Sara Wilson Mckay Jan 2005

“People Should Come To Work”: Un-Becoming Cartesian Subjects And Objects In Art Education, Sara Wilson Mckay

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

When asked about how he wants viewers to engage with his often confrontational and difficult work, performance artist William Pope. L responded, "people should come to work" (personal communication, February 3, 2003). Preparedness to engage, to work, is at the core of considering the connection of art education and democracy. All too often that connection is reduced to the idea of beauty being in the "eye of the beholder" and you can do whatever you want-flit's a free country!" Re-imagining the work of art education, I want to talk of rhizomes and cyborgs, perhaps at the risk of alienating ...

Each teacher discussed with the author how they teach the art beyond the European tradition content ...


The Need For Arts Education And Alternative Assessment In Light Of The No Child Left Behind Act Of 2001, Michelle A. Labbe Jan 2005

The Need For Arts Education And Alternative Assessment In Light Of The No Child Left Behind Act Of 2001, Michelle A. Labbe

Theses and Dissertations

Due to increasing teacher accountability and standardized test score requirements attributed to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, this essay examines research of the positive influences of arts education on student academic achievement and social growth. Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory and brain research, such as that of Eric Jensen, suggest the necessity for various types of instruction and assessment to ensure that all students' learning needs are met; and to maximize the potential for intellectual growth in each student. Harvard University's Project Zero programs: Artful Thinking, Art Works for Schools, and Arts PROPEL are examined ...
