My one other course is an online elective about Critical Thinking. Spring and summer semesters this school year will be my last three courses and all electives!
I want to share my research questions with you, my cyberspace art teacher colleagues and friends, for your input, guidance and feedback. Over the course of this semester, I will be collecting data in my classroom and therefore implementing activities to facilitate collection. I have a few ideas about what I can do, but other thoughts and perspectives are always welcome. While I am going to class each week, there are no other art teachers and my professor's experience is in reading. She even said that she has never had an art teacher in her course before!
The BIG Question:
To what extent can incorporating visual thinking skills in the art classroom help students become more comfortable talking about art and improve their creativity?
- How can group discussions centered on a work of art become more rich and in-depth?
- What techniques have I discovered that help students work through the creative process?
- To what extent will students be able to affectionately
analyze their own work?
Thank you in advance for your input, ideas and expertise. It is greatly appreciated.
