NAEA Advisory

NAEA Advisory
Similar to Translations, the NAEA Advisory is also provided to NAEA members as a free member benefit. Topics for Advisory should be aimed at translating research and theory into practice for the K-12 NAEA member.

K-12 teachers are encouraged to submit papers. Topics might include strategies for instruction and student learning; strategies for classroom organization and behavior management; assessment procedures related to art learning; incorporation of the National Visual Arts Standards into existing state and local curricula; alternative methods for teaching using technology; art instruction and higher-order thinking; issues related to teacher preparation; the incorporation of multiple-intelligences theories; conducting research in the art classroom; instructional practices in other cultures; and, art instruction in community contexts.

Submissions should be no longer than 3-5 pages double-spaced including references (600-700 words). Follow APA style. Refer to recent NAEA Advisory copies for the sense of organization and style or write the editor for further details.
