Assessment

As Art Teachers, ‘assessment’ is going to become a bigger and bigger part of our lives going forward. As districts try to keep teachers more accountable, as we search for ways to improve our tactics and methods as well as providing real validation for our lessons, assessments and this eBook will become a more and more important tool for Art Teachers to have at their disposal!

Art Room Assessment

 

To get the complete picture, with more background information, more implementation ideas, more AOE printables assembled ready to go so you can put them to use on day one, you’ll want to check out “The Complete Guide to Simple Art Assessments!”  It’s the best resource I know of for Art Teachers who want to experiment with assessment in their own classroom, and want to get started doing it sooner rather than later!

 

This book is the ultimate resource for busy Art Teachers who don’t feel they can afford time to add one more thing to their plate. This eBook helps  you get motivated and excited about assessment by dispelling the myths, breaking down barriers, and giving you strategies and printable guides you can use right now, today, in your classroom.  It empowers you to ask the right questions of your students, and make the small changes that make all the difference in student Art Room performance.

Curriculum

Putting together an art curriculum is like putting the pieces of a puzzle together: a puzzle that’s NEVER finished. You will always be tweaking until your last year of teaching draws to a close. But I get it – you are so busy and don’t always have time to research best practice in curriculum development. This eBook changes all that. It’s time to take control of your curriculum.

Designing Your Art Curriculum

 

After going through a frustrating Curriculum Review process in my own art department, I wanted to create for you the resources I WISH we possessed when reviewing and re-writing our curriculum. So much precious time was wasted researching, and as we rushed to complete in a few hours what should have taken days, I look back and think our curriculum could have been much stronger if we just had the right support and resources to get the job done and fulfill our vision.

 

This book is meant to be a guide  to enhancing each and every one of the learning experiences you already do, finding new ways to add to your existing curriculum and help to make your curriculum feel complete. Nothing will be left behind! This book is meant to be a customizable resource meant to inspire you. It’s not a “have to” guide, it’s a “here are a bunch of ideas, now take them and put them together in the way you best see fit” guide.

After reading AOE’s first book on Assessment in the art room, I have to say I was blown away. It’s not just a philisophical book or a study on the affects of assessment, it’s full of actual strategies which I put to use in my own classroom – some the day after reading about them. What an amazing resource for art teachers like me who don’t get a lot of input from the administration. Thanks for this great book! -Sara L.
