Literacy and 21st Century Skills
What resources are there for someone who does not have much experience with or knowledge about contemporary art?
Can you still teach traditional techniques in a contemporary Big Ideas curriculum?
Is contemporary art always high-concept and low-technique?
How much freedom should students have to select big ideas, or discover contemporary artists? When is it appropriate to feed them ideas, and when should they discover ideas for themselves?
How deep should I encourage/allow students to go in their research/knowledge building
How can I make meaningful connections to other disciplines through contemporary art? What does true interdisciplinary art ed look like?
How can I effectively engage elementary students in contemporary art? How can I differentiate for special needs students?
