Assessing Multicultural Art Education: What Approaches Are Currently Being Used In Virginia Public High Schools?, Laura Nichols Dec 2010

Assessing Multicultural Art Education: What Approaches Are Currently Being Used In Virginia Public High Schools?, Laura Nichols

Theses and Dissertations

This study utilized a survey of Virginia public high school teachers to examine how teachers understand multicultural education, how frequently they teach from this perspective, what cultures are represented, what teaching strategies they use, and what, if any incentives would encourage them to teach in this way more frequently. Through analysis of the findings, three major themes emerged which describe participants’ views of the purpose of multicultural education. These themes are “exposure” to other cultures, “understanding” of the way cultures interact and of the context surrounding a culture’s art, and promoting “equity” in the classroom environment and by encouraging ...


Making A Case For Arts Administrators: Maintaining Interdisciplinary Arts Programs In Public Schools, Samantha Jardon-Peppard Dec 2010

Making A Case For Arts Administrators: Maintaining Interdisciplinary Arts Programs In Public Schools, Samantha Jardon-Peppard

Graduate Theses

For decades interdisciplinary arts programs have been developed and implemented in public schools throughout our nation. Much research has been dedicated to proving the benefits of interdisciplinary arts education, results of which can be found in reports such as Champions of Change and Project Zero. However, little research has been dedicated to how an interdisciplinary arts program is maintained in a school once it has been initiated and who is responsible for its development and sustainability. Chapter one of this thesis reviews some history of arts education, why the arts have become a vital part of education, and how arts ...


Transitions To A New Museum: An Examination Of The Factors That Lead Museums Toward Education As An Institution Priority, Tanya Tobias-Tomis Aug 2010

Transitions To A New Museum: An Examination Of The Factors That Lead Museums Toward Education As An Institution Priority, Tanya Tobias-Tomis

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

This essay discusses how changes to state and federal funding, increasing competition from non-museum arts organizations and a desire to strengthen, build and diversify audiences encouraged museums to position education as an institutional priority. These factors combined with an intensifying frustration about a lack of professional standards and growing criticism of the field, encouraged museum educators to develop and adopt new, more effective ways of engaging audiences. This essay also explores how and why museums universally adopted Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) to better position themselves to compete for participation and funding. This essay concludes with several suggestions, or a plan ...

Attitudes, Self-Efficacy, And Frequency Of Use Of The Arts By Secondary-Level Teachers In Schools Deemed Successful Or In-Need-Of-Improvement Under The No Child Left Behind Act, Michael Obre

Education Dissertations

This study compared and investigated the arts attitudes and practices of secondary-level mathematics and English teachers working in Connecticut public schools deemed either successful or in-need-of-improvement under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act. This study considered how educators of subjects directly assessed for NCLB compliance, specifically mathematics and English teachers, felt about using arts in the classroom. The Teaching With the Arts Survey (TWAS) was employed to gauge the arts attitudes, self-efficacy, and frequency of use of the arts among 166 ninth- and tenth-grade mathematics and English teachers in Connecticut. The evidence indicated that while no significant differences in ...

The Role Of Personality Traits And The Big Five In Predicting Future Success Of Interior Design Students, Lori A. Brunner Mar 2010

The Role Of Personality Traits And The Big Five In Predicting Future Success Of Interior Design Students, Lori A. Brunner

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

Determining a student’s potential is a serious endeavor in higher education. In this high stakes decision-making, most programs utilize a combination of assessment measures to obtain a full picture of the candidate student. In programs where only a limited number of slots are available, this selection process becomes particularly important. This process is based on the underlying assumption that academic units want to select the students who will be the most “successful” or who will succeed, given their conceptions success. Historically, admissions criteria have encompassed a narrow definition and set of tools, even when program or department mission statements ...


The Pedagogical Role Of Reggio-Inspired Studios In Early Childhood Education, Laura Ann Ganus Mar 2010

The Pedagogical Role Of Reggio-Inspired Studios In Early Childhood Education, Laura Ann Ganus

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The influence of the Reggio Emilia philosophy has been present in early childhood programs across the United States for decades, with many programs attempting to adapt the philosophy's concept of a studio, but few studies have examined them. This study describes, interprets, and appraises two Reggio-inspired studios in the United States in order to provide an in-depth analysis and shed new light on such practices.

Four questions guided this study: 1) What is the role of a studio in a Reggio-inspired school? 2) What is happening in the studio? 3) What are children learning in this environment? 4) How ...

The Promiscuity Of Aesthetics, Paul Duncum Jan 2010

The Promiscuity Of Aesthetics, Paul Duncum

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I contend that the concept of aesthetics lies at the very heart of the art educational enterprise, albeit significantly reconfigured. I begin by offering a highly potted, historical overview of aesthetics that while it supports Tavin’s view of aesthetics as a confused and confusing concept, demonstrates how important it remains. My intention is not to support aesthetics as part of a progressive socio-political agenda, as many art educators do, but because the word aesthetics is today used extensively beyond our specialized area of art education to conceptualize the sensuousness of contemporary cultural forms. A brief investigation of books and ...


A National Labor Project: Recovering Unprecedented Numbers Of Working Class Lives And Histories Through Art, Ed Check Jan 2010

A National Labor Project: Recovering Unprecedented Numbers Of Working Class Lives And Histories Through Art, Ed Check

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I consider this essay an initial mapping where I reconstruct multiple ways of knowing and understanding the lived realities and plights of workers, whether they are manual workers, teachers or artists (Zandy, 2004). I use autobiography from a perspective of Standpoint Theory where I use the lives of working people as theory, method and evidence. I speak from my standpoint of my experiences as being raised white working class and my shift in salary and education to middle class.


Restageactivist Art/Disruptive Technologies, Karen Keifer-Boyd Jan 2010

Restageactivist Art/Disruptive Technologies, Karen Keifer-Boyd

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In this article, I explore, with you, artists’ socio-political disruptions with communication technologies to inspire political action and social change, and how such art can be environmentally and socially useful. How does art function politically? What is activist art? What non-violent forms of dissent or disruptions to harmful practices are possible today with digital technologies, and how do artists manifest political perspectives in their practice?


Obstructing The View: An Argument For The Use Of Obstructions In Art Education Pedagogy, Ryan Patton Jan 2010

Obstructing The View: An Argument For The Use Of Obstructions In Art Education Pedagogy, Ryan Patton

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Through the use of obstructions we can see how a project-based curriculum can promote very different results. The obstructions that Sandy Skoglund gave the colloquium class at Ohio State were not presented as opportunities for play. Although Bickley-Green and Phillips allowed for play in their use of obstructions, the type of play described was prescriptive and limiting. Pitri’s use of play as a form of problem solving that also allows for personal expression advocated in this paper. Clearly identifying obstructions as game-like challenges for students, they can be used for growth and critical awareness.


‘Image’ / ‘I’ / ‘Nation’: A Cultural Mash-Up, Matthew Sutherlin, Amy Counts Jan 2010

‘Image’ / ‘I’ / ‘Nation’: A Cultural Mash-Up, Matthew Sutherlin, Amy Counts

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The term Un(precedent)ED conjures ‘images’ that have never been seen before in education. Too often in the classroom we focus on the classification of objects and practices. The metaphysical question “what is?” is important only in that it must be continually revisited. Through continual re-visitation, the question becomes “what can it be?” Unfortunately, the process of becoming through imagination is a practice that is often relegated to childish whimsy. Un(precedent)ED practice requires the (re)imaging of the current apparatus of education. Precedent is a standard or model that comes before a particular event or moment; components ...


Casino Capers: Exploring The Aesthetics Of Superfluidity, Mary Stokrocki, Bianne Castillo, Michael Delahunt, Laurie Eldridge, Martin Koreck Jan 2010

Casino Capers: Exploring The Aesthetics Of Superfluidity, Mary Stokrocki, Bianne Castillo, Michael Delahunt, Laurie Eldridge, Martin Koreck

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Casinos are fast becoming sites for display of new Native American (NA) Arts. In such a context, casinos re-represent themselves and their communities through various visual forms and thus change their meanings. In her study of Wisconsin casinos, Stuhr (2004) challenged art educators to consider these visual culture displays as they accommodate new markets. Art in the casino phenomenon is worth investigating and how art educators can explore and/or make sense of this phenomenon is important. Casinos are using artworks as spectacles of pleasure. According to a casino gambling survey conducted by Harrah’s Entertainment, approximately 40 million Americans ...


(Pr)Obama Art & Propaganda: Un(Precedent)Ed Visual Collections Of Hope, Progress And Change? [Book Review], Kathleen Keys Jan 2010

(Pr)Obama Art & Propaganda: Un(Precedent)Ed Visual Collections Of Hope, Progress And Change? [Book Review], Kathleen Keys

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Three of these books chronicle visual collections celebrating the nomination, candidacy, and election of Barack Obama. The fourth book explores one particular image from this Obama art movement. Together they document the recent outpouring of fine art, street art, graphic design and other visual work presented and distributed by artists, exhibitions, the Internet and other digital means, and establish a foundation for socially concerned inquiry, and for creating related art education opportunities.


Decolonizing Development Through Indigenous Artist-Led Inquiry, Christine Ballengee-Morris, James Sanders, Debbie Smith, Kryssi Staikidis Jan 2010

Decolonizing Development Through Indigenous Artist-Led Inquiry, Christine Ballengee-Morris, James Sanders, Debbie Smith, Kryssi Staikidis

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In this article four university art educators explore theories of self-determination and describe decolonizing, approaches to research that are built on mutual trust. As researchers we recognize that (re)presenting the stories of others—especially across international and transcultural boundaries—is both problematic and an ethical challenge. We acknowledge the risks that participants assume when sharing their stories, and follow the culturally sensitive strategy of having collaborating indigenous artists lead the research.


The Unprecedented Event: Acknowledging Badiou’S Challenge To Art And Its Education, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 2010

The Unprecedented Event: Acknowledging Badiou’S Challenge To Art And Its Education, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In terms of this year’s journal theme, ”unprecedented,” there is no other contemporary philosopher who has a more radical notion than Alain Badiou when it comes to theorizing the new; that is, the emergence of an unprecedented Event ex nihilio—not novel or innovative, but free of the authority of any prior example—to make a truth claim. For art educators, especially for the Social Caucus, Badiou offers a challenge to what has largely captured the theoretical writing in this journal — namely aesthetics and representation. As well intentioned as these theorizations have been concerning identity politics and critical theory ...


Proposal For A New Method For Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills, Aspasia Dania, Vasiliki Tyrovola, Maria Koutsouba Jan 2010

Proposal For A New Method For Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills, Aspasia Dania, Vasiliki Tyrovola, Maria Koutsouba

Aspasia Dania

During the period of acquisition and first practice of movement skills, learning becomes more effective when various sensory channels are used. According to the Dual Coding Theory, students as learners code both visually and verbally incoming information into knowledge that can be stored and retrieved for subsequent use. The aim of the present study is the proposal of a new method for the teaching of fundamental motor skills that will be depended on a visual coding of movement information. Particularly, the morphological method for the analysis of dance is the proposed method according to which graphic visual symbols will be ...

Examining A First Amendment Court Case To Teach Argument Analysis To Freshman Writers At An Art College, Angelika Festa Jan 2010

Examining A First Amendment Court Case To Teach Argument Analysis To Freshman Writers At An Art College, Angelika Festa

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

By examining the arguments put forth by plaintiffs and defendants in art censorship cases, students in a freshman writing course become aware that argumentation and analysis play important roles not only in courts of law but also in the art world and in their own everyday lives as artists. This article discusses effective use of published information about a 1999 First Amendment case (Brooklyn Institute of the Arts and Sciences v. City of New York and Rudolph W. Giuliani). Guided by reading and writing assignments and a series of class discussions, students learn to analyze arguments on rights related to ...
