This presentation examines a school district’s Art I Foundation curriculum change into the Understanding by Design curriculum template. Find out the challenges and successes for this National Art Education Association annual conference in New York City March 2017.
Learning about the Question Formulation Technique in my graduate studies at Texas Woman’s University has been one of the most valuable additions to my teaching toolkit. This presentation has links to one of the developer’s TEDx talk as well as a video that was made in my classroom at the beginning of the year’s Sculpture I class. You can find out how I have the students return to the essential questions they generated for themselves throughout their creative process, from initial design to their end of project reflection. QFT is a powerful, easy and meaningful way to help our students be more engaged and in charge of their learning.
Click the “QFT Presentation” blue link below to download the presentation from the conference. The PowerPoint contains video content and will take some time to download, so be patient! Go grap a cup or better yet, work on some art while downloading. Feel free to share and please contact me with comments or questions. I would love to hear how other art teachers use QFT in their classroom!
