Too Important to Quit: A Call for Teacher Support of Art
Patterson, Jodi A.
Educational Forum, v81 n3 p339-355 2017
The author argues that general education teacher candidates must learn to "­re-start" art to empower them with the skills needed to realize art's promise within their future classrooms. Entry/exit surveys completed by candidates ­revealed that an art methods course corrected misconceptions about the nature of creativity and improved candidates' confidence in their artistic skills.
