The Evolving Theme of Teaching Multicultural Art Education. Monograph Series.
La Pierre, Sharon Greenleaf, Ed.; Ballengee-Morris, Christine, Ed.
This publication, sponsored by the U.S. Society of Education through Art (USSEA) as a forum of past presidents involving audience participation, aims to stimulate dialogue on the evolving theme of teaching multicultural issues and what affects student learning. Session participants were past presidents of the USSEA who prepared written statements on specific topics that would inform policy needs. The publication seeks to continue the dialogue on evolving multicultural issues and help teachers address concerns or give guidance where it may be needed. It is divided into the following four topic areas: (1) Define the range of multicultural concerns as we presently know them. What has characterized the most changes over the past 5 years in regard to teaching and learning? (Al Hurwitz and Kenneth Marantz); (2) Is this range of multicultural concerns and issues similar or different in regard to international art education? Is this a country-specific concept and practice? (Maryl Fletcher De Jong and Mary Stokrocki); (3) What are the major stumbling blocks to teaching multiculturally and are there usable solutions in light of the expanded range of inclusions? (Lois Petrowich-Mwaniki); and (4) There has been a generation of youth taught with multicultural pedagogy. Is there a common thread that binds the concept of multicultural art education to general educational concerns and practices? If so, what and how effective has it been to date? (Larry Kantner, Janina Rubinowitz, and Enid Zimmerman). The document concludes with the final chapter, entitled "Multicultural Art and Visual Cultural Education in a Changing World" (Christine Ballengee-Morris and Patricia L. Stuhr). (BT)
