Andrew and Tim join forces for the “official” debut of AOE Live, taking on the topic of Inspiration. Jen Dahl joins the guys for an in-depth conversation about personal teaching style, where we find our inspiration as art teachers, and how inspiration affects us in both the short-term and long-term. And can we figure out why Andrew never fully plans his lessons?
Here are a few of the articles discussed and a few other gems from the Art of Ed:
- Check out guest Jen Dahl’s blog.
- Collecting Artifacts from your travels and art experiences: Ideas from AOE as well as Patty Palmer’s Deep Space Sparkle Blog.
- Andrew talked about tailoring your curriculum to the needs of your students–read about the idea of emergent curriculum.
- Keeping things fresh, and keeping yourself motivated is always important. Have you thought about a professional bucket list?
- And lastly, what discussion about inspiration would be complete without a great list of inspirational art room quotes?
- If you are interested in checking out your professional organization, take a look at the NAEA Website.
- And if you’re looking for some relevant, in-depth PD that is actually inspiring, take a look at Tim’s favorite class to teach, Instructional Strategies for Art Teachers. Or, if classroom management is a big part of your teaching style, you might be interested in Managing the Art Room.
- You can also see some reactions to the discussion on Twitter by searching #aoelive.
