Education 466: Methods and Assessment in K-12 Art Education
Course Description: Objectives, methods, and resource materials for teaching art in elementary and secondary schools. (Colorado State Course Catalog, under the "Education-General-EDUC" subpage, http://catalog.colostate.edu/general-catalog/courses-az/educ/)
This course was my methods course geared towards establishing myself as an art teacher. We went into depth with creating and delivering lesson plans, assessment, safety, and general points that all art teachers should know. We spent time filling in at Polaris Expeditionary School as the art teachers for their elementary students. I was in a group of three teaching first graders once a week for the whole semester. The experience gave me an immense amount of knowledge towards being an educator.
