  2. 2. Making Intersections -Actual -Simulated
  3. 3. Bloom’s Taxonomy
  4. 4. • Sir Francis Drake• Your own story
  5. 5. Benefits to Student Learning• Greater long-term retention of material learned• Forces them to raise the bar above simply peer review• Intrinsic Learning• Increase in production quality and higher order concepts• Maturity in presentation skills• Challenges gifted and talented students• Constructive criticism from someone in the professional world• Team oriented
  6. 6. • ADVISING/MENTORING• REFERENCES• EXPOSURE TO CAREER OPTIONS• FUTURE CAREER CONNECTIONS• COMPETITIONS, AWARDS and SCHOLARSHIPS• HEAD START IN COLLEGE CREDITS, PROJECTS & CRITIQUES
  7. 7. Historical Context• Apprenticeships– Began in Middle Ages with artists guilds needing help.– Apprentices were 14 years of age or younger– Michelangelo was apprenticed at the age of thirteen (1449–1494) creating the renowned Pieta at age 24.– When apprenticing youth from the past achieved the status of craft workers, they became important members of society– Annually there are nearly one-half million registered apprentices in training in American business today
  8. 8. School-to-work learning is concerned withpreparing students for the difficult transitionfrom high school to a 2-4 year highereducation program. Researchers and policyanalysts refer to school-to-work transitions asways to easing the passage from young adultto wage earners. -de Lone (1992)
  9. 9. I love to critique student work and givefeedback whenever I can. We both win and so does the industry. The freshness of a new perspective is priceless and it helps me tobecome a better designer and learn more even after 25 years in the business. -Mark Bird
  10. 10. If so many teachers believe real world projects are great to do, then why aren’t they doing them more often?
  11. 11. Raising the Bar for TeachersWhy teachers may be afraid• student work may be poor quality and embarrassing• afraid guest may expose their incorrect teaching• afraid guest may say things that are in conflict with what you taught• afraid guest will not lead well• afraid students will treat guest poorly• guest will not critique well enough or too harshly• coinciding with curriculum• cost involved• afraid of taking time out of a professional’s work day
  12. 12. Quite frankly, I would not be where I am todaywithout the guidance, encouragement andinspiration of many teachers, professors and industryprofessionals. I try in every way I can to pay themback by doing work that makes a difference and bymeeting/working with young people to pay thatlegacy forward. Hopefully, in some small way, I canempower other creative people, young and old, to dothe same. -Bill Mc Kendry Hanon-McKendry Advertising
  13. 13. Practical Benefits for TeachersWhy teachers should not be afraid• learning from a professional will only improve your teaching for next year• freshness and a change of rhythm and pace is good for a classroom• getting students out of the classroom and into a real studio is exciting to them• good for a student to get a different perspective than your own• it is important for students to know that the world has conflicting opinions on art• great for students who don’t gel with you• opportunities for art program exposure
  14. 14. Teachers need to see how business is a part ofeducation and not just education foreducation’s sake… if the teachers believe inhow this vision works, and how it really doestie in to what they are doing, it’s not an “add-on” to their curriculum. Then it will continueand teachers will ask businesses to come inand speak in their classrooms or send theirstudents into work-based experiences. -Chamber of Commerce NCY
  15. 15. • 74% of students with existing experience in a work place, whether high school, college internships, or short- term connections with school-based projects receive job interviews within that existing business.• 55% of these students will be hired at or above entry level positions within these companies.• 95% of colleges say they look at major-related experiences when deciding on scholarships for incoming freshman.
