The Nottingham Apprenticeship Model: Schools in Partnership with Artists and Creative Practitioners
Griffiths, Morwenna; Woolf, Felicity
British Educational Research Journal, v35 n4 p557-574 Aug 2009
This article documents the collaborative research and development of an apprenticeship model of learning for the arts. It focuses on teachers working in partnership with artists and other creative practitioners. The model is rooted in theories of social learning and cognitive apprenticeship. It was developed and tested through collaborative research, some of it action research. The aim was to explore and test the model for appropriateness and for its impact on the learning of all participants (children, teachers, creative practitioners). The model was found to be useful as a guide to the organisation of children's learning in the arts. Moreover, using the model had a positive effect on the inclusion of children on the margins into wider school learning. The model was also useful in facilitating the professional development of the adults concerned: teachers, artists and others. (Contains 4 figures and 4 notes.)
