Constructivism in the Art Classroom: Praxis and Policy
Thompson, Christine Marmé
Arts Education Policy Review, v116 n3 p118-127 2015
Constructivist thought and practice connect easily with forms of art education that emphasize choice and student agency. This article traces the contemporary forms of constructivism that vie with more structured pedagogical approaches in American schools and recommends policies and procedures that may preserve the qualities of constructivist teaching in the arts in an era of restricted possibilities for educational innovation.
