Art and Assessment in the Science Curriculum.
Artistic endeavors can be planned for and used wisely in ongoing science lessons and units of study. Criteria in rubric form could be developed to assess student art projects and processes, and art in science might become part of a student's portfolio. Art can be a method of learning science subject matter as well as a skills objective stressing creativity on the part of the learner. Four examples show how teachers and student teachers have used art in science instruction. Some students prefer art as a way of indicating what they have learned. Expressing knowledge through art products is a good fit with the learning styles of some students. (SLD)
