GED 668 Administration and Interpretation of the Woodcock-Johnson IV (3cr.)

Instructor:  Rich Reid

The Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery - Fourth Edition (WJ-IV) is a wide-range, comprehensive set of individually administered tests for measuring cognitive abilities, academic achievement, and oral language development.  The WJ-IV has been updated to reflect the contemporary research on cognitive abilities, to increase utility relative to determining special education eligibility, to provide greater diagnostic capabilities to inform instruction, and to reflect the research regarding language development and overall academic achievement.  Through participation in this course, participants will learn about the tests, factors, and scoring options that result from the administration of this test battery.  Students will also learn to administer, score, and interpret the WJ-IV.  Classroom discussions, demonstrations, and activities will be supplemented by three complete administrations of the battery.  Students who successfully complete this course will have met the training criteria recommended by the authors and publisher of the WJ-IV.  The course will also include a discussion of a variety of essential related topics such as Vermont's special education eligibility criteria as they relate to tests and scoring options.  The WJ-IV will also be thoroughly examined in regard to its use within Responsiveness to Intervention (RtI) model of student support. 

GED 673A: Portraits and Manuscripts: Off Grid (1 cr.)
Instructor:  Ben Patrick

Classroom and art teachers ask their students to make portraits and visual documents for many different curriculum projects.  Through a series of hands-on activities this course is designed for educators to gain confidence and expand the possibilities in their ability to help their students express identity and perspective.  We will use mixed media to draw, collage, and sculpt portraits and make manuscripts as well as be inspired by the varied ways artists have interpreted portraits and manuscripts in the past.  To model an integrated curriculum project we will explore Homer’s Odyssey to demonstrate how to visually convey different emotions, values, and physical attributes.  In the process of creating portraits and manuscripts we will keenly observe the range between abstraction and representation and use of symbols, text, metaphor, and layering.

GED 673B: Creating Stories from Art History and Our Visual Culture (1 cr.)
Instructor:  Jonathan Silverman

Have you ever looked at a piece of art and wondered how to talk about it?  How do you help your students critically and imaginatively respond to the visual culture we live in? How might contemporary art work inspire the creative process and lead to personal expressive interpretations on the environment, human rights, or globalization? This one credit course is open to those who want to extend their knowledge of inspiring works of art, make sense of visual culture, engage in the creative process, and generate ideas to include arts literacy in educational environments. The essential premise for this class is that the arts have not only been an enduring literacy to all cultures they provide a moral, spiritual, and aesthetic window into our culture today and the future.  As we read a variety of images and understand the context in which these images are made and the stories they tell, we will build our observational skills and perception.  We will enrich our vocabulary to communicate about images, spark our creativity by being inspired by works of art and review accessible resources. After participating in a variety of active aesthetic education exercises students will design an inquiry project of personal interest and/or one that relates directly to their curricula. This course is designed for those with or without (positive) art history experiences and who seek to explore vibrant ways to integrate art and history, visual and culture and imagination and creativity.

GED 673C:  Enlivening Reading with Drama (1 cr.)
Instructor:   Joan Robinson

Research has shown that creative drama builds reading skills and yet, it is rarely used in teaching reading. This course, designed for K-12 teachers with all levels of acting experience, presents ways to teach theater skills and to easily interweave drama into the study of both fiction and non-fiction texts. A reading list will be available by mid-June.

GED 673D Special Topics in Art:  Science, Bookmaking, Arts (3 cr)
Instructors: Linda Lembke and Susan Sawyer

In this course we will explore bookmaking as a means to support scientific concepts and drawing as an essential tool for communication of observations, processes, and concepts in science. In the mornings, Linda Lembke will lead students through the construction of several book models suggested by concepts of cycles, sequences, and classification as well as field journals designed for scientific exploration. In the afternoons, Susan Sawyer will lead drawing exercises to demonstrate that much of the content of science can best be communicated visually. Together we will work on a collaborative science project that brings together both bookmaking and drawing skills. The course is designed for art, science, and classroom educators at all grade levels. Independent projects will relate to students’ interest in developing an area of the science curriculum or a scientific concept with a related book form. There is a $100.00 materials fee due at registration.

 

GED 673E Thinking Like DaVinci: Bringing Innovation to Interdiciplinary Curriculum & the Common Core (3 cr.)

Instructor: Autumn Bangoura

With the newly developed Common COre Standards focusing primarily on literacy and mathematics, many educators are struggling to maintain an adequate focus on Science, History and the Arts. Inspired by DaVinci's innovative way of thinking about the worlds of science, art, technology, writing, mathematics, and invention, this course is designed to help teachers develop a cross-disciplinary approach to unit planning. Conducive to K-8 educators, teaching artists, and museum educators this course provides opportunities for participants to experience model lessons that employ such cross-disciplinary (and Common Core friendly) skills as observation, prediction, experimentation, inquiry, and imagination that will lead to individually designed "DaVinci" units.

GED 674 Multicultural Arts (3cr.)
Instructor:  Ann Joppe-Mercure

This course will combine the discipline of visual arts with the concept of multicultural studies. By engaging in hands-on projects, using artifacts, going on field trips, and discussing professional readings, participants will learn to integrate multicultural studies into their curriculum. The major themes of the course include inquiry based exploration of cultural artifacts, similarities across cultures and folk art. Connections will be made to the Common Core’s goal of understanding other perspectives and cultures. This course fulfills the integrated arts requirement in the Arts in Education concentration. A $50.00 materials fee is due upon registration.

GED 684 School and Community (3cr.)

Instructor: Valerie Gardner

This course introduces current and prospective educators and administrators to the ever changing, but closely coupled, relationship between school and community.

GED 695 Teaching K-8 Science and Design Technology (3cr.)

Instructor: Tim Whiteford

This course is designed to explore the many facets of teaching science and design technology at the K-8 levels.

A $25.00 materials fee is required and due at registration.
