COURSE DESCRIPTION

The School of Art at Illinois State University is committed to preparing art educators who promote a high level of competence and integrity in practicing their profession. Graduates will contribute to Realizing the Democratic Ideal (RDI) by providing excellence in education thus enhancing the quality of life potential for all learners. Courses offered through the School of Art develop and assess the knowledge, performance, and disposition standards required of the professional art educator. Standards adopted by the School of Art include those of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), the Interstate New Teachers Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC), and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) standards outlined in the Illinois Professional Teaching Standards (IPTS), and the Illinois Visual Arts Content - Area Standards (VACS). Illinois Core Technology (CTS) and Language Arts (CLAS) Standards for all teachers are also considered.

Art 309 is for art education majors preparing to teach art in the elementary, middle, and secondary schools. The course is designed to be completed in two consecutive semesters, Fall through Spring after completing Art 201 and Art 211. Participants are involved with both academic and practical experiences during the year. These experiences are selected to prepare future art teachers to relate to the needs and interests of children and adolescents. Coursework addresses the National Standards for Arts Education and the Illinois State Goals and Learning Standards for Fine Arts for students. A comprehensive approach to art education that includes historical and current issues from cultural perspectives, art criticism, aesthetics, and art making is applied. As the students acquire information about art education and teaching, they receive periodic feedback regarding their progress through formal and informal assessment. The Program encourages students to realistically evaluate their interest in, and capabilities for, teaching art in the schools. The course is scheduled to meet 1:00 - 3:50 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. Additional time is required for observations, participation, and teaching experiences that include five Saturday classes during the fall semester for area children. Resource persons contribute to specified content areas. The class usually meets as a whole, but may meet in sub-groups, or in other combinations of students and faculty.

 
   
Students are expected to complete written work using acceptable professional writing. The professor may require that projects be revised if completed in an unsatisfactory manner and may adjust the course grade accordingly.

Professional behaviors reflecting the dispositions required of teachers will be expected from prospective teachers. These behaviors include promptness and consistent attendance, preparedness for class discussion, meeting due dates, manners, honesty, and ethical behavior.

Attendance, promptness, an enthusiastic attitude, and full in-class participation are expected at all times. Absences, late arrivals, and early departures can contribute to a lowered letter grade.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

Academic integrity is expected in all class-related endeavors. Students are expected to be honest in all academic work. Offenses involving academic dishonesty include, but are not limited, to the following: cheating on quizzes or examinations, computer dishonesty, plagiarism (the appropriation of another's work, words, or ideas), grade falsification or collusion (see Student Handbook for definitions and University regulations regarding academic dishonesty). Acts involving academic dishonesty will be reported to the Director of the School of Art and the Student Judicial Office. The penalties for academic dishonesty may be severe, ranging from failure on the particular class requirement, to failure in the course, to expulsion from the major or the University. (see catalog and Student Handbook for a description of adjudication procedures).

DELIVERY SYSTEM

Lessons will be presented in a lecture and discussion format. Students will participate in lab/studio and teaching activities.
