ASSESSING OUR TEACHERS’ PERSPECTIVES, BELIEFS, AND STYLES ON MAKING STUDENT THINKING VISIBLE

The topic of focusing on student learning and understanding vs. a finished artwork or knowledge/skill has added a new level of discussion among art educators. How can we make students’ thinking visible in an art show? What needs to be present in an artist statement that allows others to see what a student understands and knows after going through the process of creating a work of art? How can students carry with them the knowledge gained as they develop over time? What items should be showcased? These and many other questions have been part of our PLC and meeting discussions. How do our personal philosophies influence how we make decisions in our individual classrooms?
