Social Justice Education and Contemporary Art: Elementary Teaching

This class introduces social justice art pedagogy in preschool and elementary schools as “situated practice,” that is both teaching and learning take place within particular historical and societal contexts. Students develop knowledge and skills to plan, organize, and facilitate meaningful, socially relevant art curricula for students with varying needs and abilities, paying attention to learning processes, motivation, communication, classroom management and the inter-relationship of art to speaking, critical thinking, writing, reading and other curricular subjects.
