We all enter the world of teaching wanting our students to grow in their art skills and knowledge. Tracking that growth can be tricky for performance-based subjects like art. With the stress of evaluations closely tied to our ability to show improvement, demonstrative development is an area we must become experts in.
Showing Student Growth in Art is the course that will teach you the basic types of student growth data that can be collected and how to develop tools to make tracking growth simple and transparent. Critical to this work is knowing how to choose and create meaningful topics to assess, then taking this knowledge and writing a solid student growth goal. The process doesn’t have to be daunting! It can be extremely rewarding to see students learning new concepts in the art room.

"Classes are very affordable and doable for teachers, no matter where they are. Art of Ed knows art teachers are more than craft instructors. Since I am from a small town, I feel pretty isolated, and connecting with teachers across the country is awesome and so beneficial. The ongoing nature of the online class unfolds, step by step, with comments about how we're doing, and we can see for ourselves what others are doing in comparison. It helps us step up our game. "
