Writing lesson plans is often considered busywork, but it can be a useful path for discovering what’s important about artmaking and teaching. This book shows teachers how to slow down, breathe, and linger over the process of unit and lesson plan writing to uncover how much this process can support them professionally, creatively, and personally. The user-friendly text offers guidance for selecting an art project for the unit and then zooms into the nitty-gritty of specific lesson plans, including how to identify materials for a project and how to construct classroom dialogue to help students develop ideas for their artwork. The text also considers standards, assessments, and extensions to other subject areas. Featuring accessible language, clear definitions, practical examples, and self-reflection prompts, this unique resource will help pre- and inservice teachers create lesson plans that are useful to their specific contexts and methods of teaching. “If you happen to be feeling weary, frustrated, or uninspired, this book sparks imagination, fuels hope, and gives you theories to support what you know needs to be done.” —From the Foreword by P. Bruce Uhrmacher, Christy McConnell Moroye, and Bradley Conrad, educational researchers “Baxter invites us to slow down and consider the lesson plan as a creative catalyst to inspire our own artmaking, as well as a space to examine why and what we teach.” —Lisa Hochtritt, Maryland Institute College of Art “An inspiring and playful resource that is much more rewarding than typical lesson planning. It will surely spark your imagination with every flip of the page.” —Hailey Adlard, art educator, Parkland School District, PA

This second edition of a classic and popular book includes new chapters, figures and colour plates. The book blends practical ideas with sound principles of art education. For the teacher or trainee-teacher looking for ideas, there are plenty of tested classroom examples. For those looking for firm principles of art teaching and ''best practice'', this book presents many important issues in art education with clarity and insight. Based on first-hand experience of teaching children, the book uses many examples from the school situation. Essential topics, such as developing skills through using media, how children draw, producing original artwork, developing ideas and Art and the digital image are tackled with realism and imagination. An important feature is that these subjects are not seen in isolation but are purposefully linked with other areas of the curriculum. The author''s approach should encourage teachers to develop and think about art in the National Curriculum. His writing shows a deep sympathy with children and sensitivity to the real task of teaching art to the young.

Taking Risks and Learning to Teach Art

Taking Risks and Learning to Teach Art

Following in the work of Deborah Britzman (2009) and Nakkula and Toshalis (2006), I argue that risk-taking needs to be reframed as a necessary platform for meaningful teaching and art making.

Creating meaningful art and learning to teach art in a meaningful way involve taking risks. As a student teacher, every daily element of teaching involves risk and creates the potential for conflict. This includes class instruction, student interaction, classroom management, and fostering meaningful connections between students and their artwork. My research questions address how risk-taking and conflict operate in a student teacher's high school art classroom. How do risk-taking and conflict impact the experience of learning to teach art in a Chicago high school classroom? What is the relationship between conflict and creativity in the context of students' learning? How does a student teacher translate her development as a classroom art educator into a critical and personally meaningful theory of teaching? My research took place during seven weeks of student teaching at a Chicago public high school. I explored my research questions while teaching a six-week unit plan in which Art I students created sculptures of a single piece of clothing. My experience as a student art teacher is the context for my research on teaching, student learning, and learning to teach art. In my thesis I compare the developmental territory, shared by student teachers and youth, of confidence building, risk-taking, and confronting the emotional atmosphere of an art classroom. Within that space, student teachers and adolescents search for their voices as educators and as adults. Following in the work of Deborah Britzman (2009) and Nakkula and Toshalis (2006), I argue that risk-taking needs to be reframed as a necessary platform for meaningful teaching and art making. Data was triangulated from a variety of sources, including multiple journals on teaching from the perspective of lesson planning, connections with academic research, and daily reflections. My thesis also incorporates written feedback from students and my cooperating teacher and the students' artwork. I hope that my research will spur new perspectives in the fields of art education, critical pedagogy, and teacher education regarding the role of risk and conflict in student teaching and art education. This involves introducing a theory of learning with students in academic, creative, emotional, and developmental ways. By learning with students, I believe that critical educators can form more authentic connections through their teaching. I also suggest that the process of finding the courage to confront risks and conflict collaboratively may result in more meaningful student artwork and more capable art teachers.
