Teaching in the NYC Public Schools ADE-304
Students apply the insights gained through previous coursework, reading, and observation as they participate in a professional teaching situation in either a NYC public elementary school or a NYC public secondary school. Under the guidance of a NY State certified visual arts instructor, students work for 20 full days at their assigned sites–observing, assisting and ultimately teaching independently. An ADE faculty member observes the students at their sites 3 times over the course of the semester and leads 4 on-campus seminars that serve as a forum for reflection, analysis, and inspiration. Lesson plans and artwork from lessons taught, as well as issues related to classroom management, curriculum development, and school culture are the subjects of discussion.
