ARTE 3605 - Creating an Inclusive Art Classroom: Curriculum and Instruction

Credits: 2

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): ARTE 3601 or permission of department

Description: This lecture/practicum course addresses the steps needed to create and implement effective curriculum in an inclusive or mainstreamed art classroom. Students learn about various exceptionalities of pre K-12 students, ranging from mild to severe. The challenges to meet the individualized needs of a diverse student population through effective instruction are explored in the classroom and in the field. During the semester, students meet in-class for the first eight weeks to prepare for their practicum experience, completed during the second half of the
semester. Putting into practice the theories discussed in class, pre-service art education students develop effective techniques for fostering student engagement, individualization strategies, problem solving, and classroom management techniques, while working directly with special needs students in an inclusive learning environment.
