Studies show that when students have more choice in how they learn, they gain confidence, and confidence translates to more positive interactions and engagement within the classroom. In this course, you will examine various choice-based learning approaches in the art room with a critical eye towards their impact on assessment, advocacy, and management strategies. You will walk away with new ideas for how to incorporate more choice into your practice as well as revised, applicable classroom approaches and curriculum for your art room.

A sample assignment from Week 2 of the class Choice-Based Art Education
"This class was a huge eye opener to me; I would recommend to anyone in art education. I had no previous knowledge of choice based art ed; it truly is the best approach to teaching students to think like artists."
"This class has really helped me develop a new philosophy and teaching style that brings creativity, media, and curriculum together into a very student-centered structure."
"Love the 'realness' of the class - we actually created things we can use in our own classroom. Whenever I can get something to use in my own life, it makes the time spent so much more valuable and appreciated!"
