Designing and Implementing "Exemplary Content, Curriculum, and Assessment in Art Education"
Popovich, Karen
Art Education, v59 n6 p33-39 Nov 2006
A comprehensive, well designed approach to curriculum and assessment is fundamental to effective teaching and learning in the field of art education. Exemplary curriculum and assessment is evolving, non-linear, and responsive to students' interests and current events. In this article, the author addresses key components of effective visual arts curriculum based on her 10 years of experience designing and implementing curriculum and assessment in the visual arts and current research in the field. Interdisciplinary integration, authentic assessment, and the contemporary curriculum discourses of postmodernism, phenomenology, and autobiographical text are the main focus of current research in the field. The author's pedagogical practices for curriculum, assessment, and instruction in the art classroom are supported by authentic examples provided within the context of interdisciplinary integration, authentic assessment, and the contemporary curriculum discourses.
