  5. 5. SPACE • How many centers can you accommodate? • Can you make a gathering/demonstration area? • Are there areas for displaying menus, directions and resources in each center? • What sort of storage do you have for unfinished work? • Where is your water source?

  12. 12. Instruction Contextual and Emergent *Whole Group *Small Group *Individual *Peer to Peer • Teaching comes in many forms: direct and indirect (through visuals and references), whole−group demonstrations and discussions, small groups of students who choose a particular exploration, and one−to−one teacher to student interaction. • Student independence is encouraged. • The teacher's roles include demonstrating, modeling, facilitating, coaching, providing content, and altering that content as a result of observations made in class. • Students provide much of the instruction. • Student "experts" who work in one medium over time serve as coaches and peer tutors, enjoying further learning in the process. • Student discoveries are shared with classmates and teachers. • Students form cooperative groups in an organic manner. • A great deal of information is transmitted student to student.

  15. 15. Assessment Artistic Behaviors Artistic behaviors are honored and noted in the ongoing daily assessment process. . 
Choice-based art education uses multiple forms of assessment to support student and teacher growth.
 Teacher-created documentation captures observations of students’ artistic behaviors, needs and accomplishments. Some of the Artistic Behaviors choice teachers value include: • Risk-taking • Following a line of thought over time • Going deep with a preferred medium or technique • Playing and experimenting • Bringing aspects of their life into their art Rubrics • Rubrics are negotiated between students and teachers and are broad enough to affirm diverse learning styles. • Rubrics are generated while viewing student artwork as examples of excellence. What does Excellence look like in Art Class? • Examples show a range of materials. • Some represent weeks of work while others are simple sketches done in minutes.
  16. 16. Advocacy Established in 2001, the Teaching for Artistic Behavior TM (TAB) organization is a grassroots educational movement entirely developed and maintained by art teachers. This concept comes directly from choice-based art education practices and action research in visual art classrooms around the United States. Our Board of Directors is charged with upholding TAB’s Mission, Vision and Professional Development offerings. Teaching for Artistic Behavior became incorporated in 2007, in order to better serve the needs of choice-based art educators.
  17. 17. Personal Reflection and Growth DO THE GROUNDWORK • Read everything you can get your hands on relating to TAB practice and student-centered learning and teaching. • Look for articles on Differentiated Learning, Constructivism and Choice in all areas of education. • Print out the practices, stories and research summaries at • Join the TAB online discussion forums …you’re ready to jump into creating a TAB CHOICE art program? Or to EVOLVE one you’ve started?? If you talk with experienced TAB Choice Art Teachers, most will tell you that their program the first years looks A LOT different than their current one. As we expect our students to reflect and grow, we do the same. Keep what works, let go of what doesn’t. Don’t be afraid to fail and remember to celebrate successes!! Connect with TAB Choice colleagues…they are irreplaceable. It is pretty incredible to experience the authentic student growth through the constructive pedagogy of a CHOICE based art education!!
