A Case Study in Classroom Management and School Involvement: Designing an Art Room for Effective Learning
Broome, Jeffrey L.
Art Education, v66 n3 p39-46 May 2013
The purpose of this research project is to investigate the design of classroom environments through the lens of a uniquely selected art educator. More specifically, the purpose is to use case study methodology (Stake, 1995) to characterize the resulting instructional experiences for an art educator who had the unique opportunity to collaborate with a school renovation committee in designing a new art room with particular attention paid to the subsequent effects in classroom management. While few teachers may have the opportunity to collaborate with classroom design committees in such a way, this article may aid art educators in considering the rearrangement of their art rooms as a way to address classroom management and will also provide suggestions to preservice and first-year art teachers considering the organization of their rooms for the first time. By sharing the experiences of those in unique educational situations, researchers add to the resources that may be used by others in collective decision-making (Donmoyer, 1990).
