AED 500: Meth & Mat:Cur Methods
Experimental uses of materials and methods and their didactic implications. This course seeks to develop skills in designing curricula for varied age groups which focus on the expressive range of each media. Students will meet for studio-based sessions to explore alternative media and techniques and pursue ideas to create art objects and design lessons and units with which these same ideas may be taught to others. In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, students seeking teaching certification in either PK-9 or 5-12 will have readings and field practicum specifically for the intended age range. Students aiming for careers other than teaching will do readings and a field practicum appropriate to those career goals.
