Studies in an Art Education Studio Area

The course will introduce the participants to various approaches to making and exploring objects and materials, engage with conceptual/aesthetic frameworks to think the sculptural, and consider the social and cultural contexts in which objects are placed (why does place matter?). Contemporary sculptural practices point to social forces, induce experiences, foster encounters, provoke thought, trigger wonderings, and can be rich pedagogical events. This course is composed of online synchronous classes with course content, hands-on projects, individual studio time, and readings. Easy to find, everyday materials and tools will be used.

Teaching Poetry
This course covers instructional methodologies for all forms of poetry. It is divided into three weekly topics: 1) Oral, 2) Literary, and 3) Digital or Media poetry and poetics. Students are expected to engage in a personal quest for poems that will provide the basis for preparing poetry units to teach in schools and other educational settings and to augment these with their own creative writing. Both canonical and non-canonical examples will be used, ranging from poetry in popular culture to ancient and archaic texts. In addition, this course emphasizes a multicultural, world literature approach, and embraces texts in translation from a variety of languages, writing systems, and traditions. One of the starting premises for this course is that a) there is no singular or correct reading of a poetic text, and that all interpretations are possible—divergence is to be encouraged!, b) until one plays with a text, it is hard to get to know it!; c) equal emphasis on appreciating poetry and generating poetry is essential to effective poetic pedagogy.
