Development and Implementation of a Discipline Based Art Education Staff Development Program for Elementary Art Teachers.
Herbert, Deborah A.
This program was developed and implemented to identify, inservice and coach elementary art teachers who did not have pre or post graduate discipline based art education (DBAE) training. The reason this training was important is because the district has written and adopted a kindergarten through twelfth grade DBAE art curriculum. The objectives for this program were for all the teachers in the target group to successfully complete a full day inservice training session; and improve their classroom environment by the increased use of art prints and critical thinking skill questioning strategies. Teachers and their students also viewed a DBAE instructional video created by the writer in order to observe and practice DBAE teaching strategies. All participants were observed teaching an original DBAE lesson. All the program objectives were met with five of the seven target group teachers improving dramatically in all areas. The two remaining target group teachers also showed marked improvement. Appendices include DBAE Observation forms, DBAE student and teacher artwork, and a DBAE activities page and surveys. (Author)
