Writing and Dialogue for Cultural Understanding: Multicultural Art Education in an Art Teacher Certification Program
Millman, Joyce
Art Education, v63 n3 p20-24 May 2010
"Why do they always tell you what "not" to do? Why don't they tell you what to do?" a student in an art education course for certification complained. The course is required for undergraduate students and post-baccalaureates, and introduces multicultural education and topics related to teaching, including educational philosophy, school law, and the history of education. Because students' questions surfaced during a discussion about issues related to diversity in the classroom, it became clear that the author needed to make changes in her class assignments and activities, especially relating to multicultural education. In this article, the author describes the methods she used with her certification students to approach multicultural education. She agrees with Chalmers that "a multicultural approach is for everyone. All students should be prepared to live in an increasingly pluralistic society." (Contains 4 figures.)
