I might not be a teacher right now but I’m already in my journey to being one. So I want to be able to be a part of a childcare or to volunteer in schools to have more experience about teaching and interacting with the students.

The stories bridge the cultural gap between students of different cultures, increase listening skills, enhance self-reflections, and improve interactions between students. Storytelling also improves connections and relationships so students will stop segregating themselves in their culture group. Storytelling helps student engagement, creates new ways of communicating, helps students look at ideas in a different way, and changes their attitudes toward others.
Art supports teamwork skills as well as it allows for students to learn the value of constructive criticism. Another goal of my classroom is that education should be taught in ways that are engaging and relevant, in hopes to inspire a love of learning and to help the student find themselves, their interest, goals and dreams, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. My hopes are to inspire them to be driven enough to strengthen their weaknesses though continual learning. Another goal of my teaching is to provide a safe and nurturing place for all students. The art classroom provides a wonderful opportunity for this safe place because it allows all students to learn and advance their skills, no matter their academic ability or achievement or if they have a disability of any sort.
At a Reggio Emilio school, children are also encouraged to rework any artwork if they fail to convey the intended purpose of the project. The work is done in groups by the students but also planned in pairs by the teacher. By making the arts the core of the curriculum, societies can begin to reaffirm their cultural role in children. Through many education classes, I have studied the importance of experiencing the environment to learn. I have also studied the importance of multiple intelligences in the classroom.
Art education teaches students to appreciate, criticize or interpret by using the visual information. Sixthly, the arts strengthens problem solving and critical thinking skills by allowing the students to make choices and decisions. This is certainly allows them to carry over into their education and other parts of life—as this is surely a valuable skill in their adulthood. Seventhly, perseverance whereby the students will be asked to develop new skills and work through difficult projects during the career. Eightly, focus whereby when students persevere through painting, singing or learning in a play, focus is
How To Promote Critical Thinking Inside the Art Classroom? Jonathan Pleitez Texas State University From my educator experience, I have learned a lot about the role of a teacher. One of a teacher’s role is to provide knowledge to their students and to incorporate that acquired knowledge into the world. A strategy teachers use is critical thinking. Critical thinking is crucial in the learning process.
This lesson is informed by my philosophy of education reflecting the purpose of school as a space for student 's to gain an education in art, driven by the desire to understand and learn about the world around them, and how they participate by expressing the innate creative ideas offered that are part of the human experience. Each student will develop the natural curiosity that is gained through developing and strengthening creative problem solving. In addition, students will research artists that have used collage techniques to address world issues. My goal and philosophy as a teacher is to implement a progressive type of classroom. Progressivism is defined as, "organizing schools around the concerns, curiosity, and real-world experiences of students" (Sadker & Zittleman, 2012, p. 190).
In a future I plan to inspire my students and other children to love art. I plan to accomplish this goal by helping them understand and see the beauty of art. Students admiration towards art could start by discovering art such as doing hands on and touching the materials (Cornett, 2011). By visualizing art students could learn and discover the meaning of the art. Having the students observe a type of art could help them imagine and make them use their smell and sound senses (Cornett, 2011).
I plan to teach my students the importance, and keep my education going by learning from my students as well as furthering my own education. I plan to get my masters in art education some day, so I can teach my students to the full creativity of my mind. Conclusion Education is the most important aspect of life. As teachers, we set the path for success in our students, and release them into society as responsible adults. Art helps create these paths by opening blocked ones, and allowing mental breaks throughout the day.
When working in groups, it helps students be more tolerable of different ideas and teaches them how to approach and solve problems in a variety of ways. When coming into my future classroom, there will be students working with technology, arts, reading, and writing. All students learn in different ways; therefore, a lesson can be taught using different techniques. For example, if a teacher is teaching photosynthesis, those working with art could draw or create a flower and write down the process of photosynthesis, those working with technology could make a video or PowerPoint showing the process, and those who enjoy reading and writing could write a paper explaining the process of photosynthesis. Field trips will also be incorporated into my future classroom.
