Art Education and the Art Teaching Profession. Monograph No. 1.
Anderson, Kent, Ed.
The purpose of this monograph is to present the thinking of art educators from all levels of the profession regarding the means to identify and encourage qualitative art career education. Each of the four sections is comprised of small group session reports of contributions, concepts, needs, and concerns that emerged from four National Art Education Association conferences that focused on career education in art education. The report of the elementary division sessions is a synthesis of what has been done and what could be done in the future to increase students' awareness and understanding of themselves, their abilities, and the world of careers. The secondary session report focuses on present efforts in career education, suggestions for future actions, cautions/problems/hindering forces, and recommendations for association actions. The report of the higher education division addresses continuing education, college art education for majors and non-majors, and the responsibilities of higher education toward the K-12 curriculum. Finally, the report of the supervision and administration division discusses the need for support at the highest levels of decision making. (LRA)
