Reaching All Artists Through Differentiation

Differentiation


Credits: 3 Credits
PD Hours: 120 Hours
Length: 5 Weeks

It can be overwhelming to meet the needs of hundreds of students in the art room each week. This class will help you the tools maximize the learning for all students, including advanced placement, struggling learners, ELL students, special education students, and students from different backgrounds, cultures and interests. This class will give you the skills and opportunity to enhance and modify your lessons and assessments to be developmentally appropriate and meet all students needs.

We will also cover how to manage the logistics of a differentiated art room, no matter how many students you serve. Motivate even the most reluctant art students and get them excited about art and make positive progress forward. You will leave the class with a toolkit to help you take the strategies directly into the art room and implement them right away.

  • Take your lessons and revamp them to optimize for all learners
  • Learn how to identify and manage the needs of your unique art students
  • Conduct interest and strength inventories to use in the classroom
  • Research best practices in differentiation strategies
  • Observe examples of actual art teachers putting these ideas into practice
  • Revamp your own assessments to be more developmentally friendly
