Creating a Student Centered Classroom Choice Based Art Education http://vimeo.com/47676569 What is Choice Based Education? http://vimeo.com/47513104 What does a choice based
classroom look like? In a TAB classroom students can: How does choice based learning
benefit the students? - Work at their own speed
- Work from strengths
- Follow a line of thought over time
- Learn from and work with peers
- Be "on task" for a great portion of the class
(students set up their own workspace and
move on when finished)
- Develop a working style
- Use what they know to show what they know
(student interests can be explored in depth)
- Form cooperative groups for collaboration
- Show responsibility by care of materials and centers - Have more one-on-one time to determine students strengths and weaknesses
- Allow for more in-depth instruction on a range of topics
- Offer special "scaffolding" to struggling students
- Get to know students through their personalized styles
- Expect students to come to class highly motivated and ready to work
- Individualize instruction to play on individual strengths and interests How does choice based instruction
help teachers? Provide students with: What do teachers do? - Time for creating
- A studio space
- A variety of materials
- Encouragement and excitement
- Group and individualized instruction
in a slew of skills, techniques, historical
contexts, and master artists. Centered around artistic mediums. What do choice based classrooms
look like? The class is set up with different centers that hold
different mediums. Each of these centers are opened
and introduced to the students center by center to
insure a full knowledge base of the materials. Permanent centers may include: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Clay, Collage, etc.

Interest based centers could include: Mask making, Origami, Cut Paper, Puppets, etc. What do these centers look like? A Perfect Match! How does choice align with standards? Each choice class begins with a 5 minute demo where the
whole class is presented with new topic, artist, technique, concept, material, etc. These demos are designed to align with the Oxford Hills curriculum, Maine Learning Results, and National Standards. The students then respond to the demo through choice. Authentic Learning and Assessment How is choice assessed? "Unlike classrooms where students primarily follow teacher directions, choice-based studio centers let learners show you what they really know and can do." (Douglas)

Instead of focusing on step by step assessments, choice based classrooms assess on effort, skill with materials, creative problem solving, and making artistic choices; which are exactly the topics graded on progress reports. We need a 21st century classroom! Why now? Although there are many waves throughout education now, Mass Customized Learning, 21st Century Skills, Expeditionary Learning, etc; the intent is the same - to engage students in meaningful learning in order to foster 21st century citizens.

"The only way to achieve true education reform is to redesign student learning from class time to curriculum, and from teaching styles to learning spaces. The instruction [needs to be] tailored to each student’s needs and interests." - Julie Mathiesen, director of Technology & Innovation in Education (Mass Customized Learning)
