AED 200 - Methods and Materials: Curriculum Methods in Art Education

3 credits C
Experimental uses of materials and methods and their didactic implications. This course seeks to develop skills in designing curricula for varied age groups which focus on the expressive range of each media. Students will meet for a studio-based session to explore alternative media and techniques, followed by a second session in which studio majors pursue the ideas to create art objects and art education majors pursue the ideas to design lessons and units with which these same ideas may be taught to others. In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, students seeking teaching certification in either PreK-8 or 5-12 will have readings and field practicum specifically for the intended age range. Students aiming for careers other than teaching will do readings and a field practicum appropriate to those career goals. Fifteen practicum hours required outside of class.
