EDUC 380 The Teaching Artist in School and Community Settings


This course engages students in the theory and practice of the teaching artist. Students will explore the role of the teaching artist in arts education in an historical context as well as in current practice with children, adolescents, adult and senior populations. This exploration is anchored in study, reflection, and direct experience in Chicago Public Schools, arts organizations and community settings. Students will spend class time studying teaching artist fundamentals including: building partnerships, developing and implementing inquiry-based arts curricula and lesson plans, creating community in the classroom, designing inclusive experiences in the arts, working within community and school cultures, and understanding classroom management in a variety of settings and populations. Guest teaching artists, from a range of disciplines, will lead sessions introducing a range of effective teaching artist strategies. Students will observe and/or assist in the delivery of arts instruction in a variety of settings.
