AED 410 - Curriculum Design

3 credits
Prerequisites: AED 200, AED 201, AED 305
Development of curriculum units in the visual arts applicable to educational settings in public schools as well as other selected institutions. From a basis in understanding the broad goals of art education, students plan appropriate learning experiences. Curricula will be designed based upon traditional concepts and principles of art in a context of human development, physical and social environment, and aesthetics. In accordance with the recommendations of the Massachusetts Department of Education, students seeking teaching certification in either N-9 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.
