Choice-based classrooms empower students to take ownership of their learning and place the student at the center of their educational experience. Participants in this course will come to better understand choice-based practices in the art room by examining various choice-based approaches, implementing relevant management strategies, and investigating their own stance on choice-based teaching practices. This course will encourage exploration and a deepening understanding of choice-based approaches in the art classroom, leaving participants with increased confidence and a bigger toolbox.
