Art educators encounter a wide range of diverse students each day. However, according to a 2019 report by the National Center for Learning Disabilities, only 30% of teachers surveyed felt confident they could successfully engage diverse learners. This course will explore classroom management strategies and best practices to foster positive behaviors and create accessible learning in the art room to engage a diverse range of students. Participants will examine behavior challenges, and investigate how to prevent and redirect unwanted behaviors. They will also examine ways to teach, model, and encourage desired behaviors.
