Publisher's Summary:
"Teaching for Artistic Behavior" is an art education curriculum focused on choice-based teaching and learning for elementary and middle school age students. The pedagogy is clearly outlined and addresses personal relevancy, the learning environment, instruction, assessment and advocacy. A strong argument is presented for meaningful learner-directed art making experiences for all students. This book blends sound educational theory with actual practice, and is a resource for practicing and pre-service art teachers, curriculum coordinators, aftercare and camp directors and anyone interested in authentic learning through visual art.
