I've never been much for rubrics. I find they often put constraints around the very thing they are trying to bolster. However, I recently saw a rubric that addressed student expectations (as opposed to specific projects.) I thought this might be an interesting way to address what Engagement looks like at South B.
Since the class operates around the four stages of the Artwork Thinking Process, Inspiration, Design, Creation and Reflection, these were used as the foundation. Each area then addresses the top three expectations of the Engaged student. If the student is accomplishing these 12 expectations, they are truly engaged in the learning process.
It's a rather simplistic chart, yet it's all encompassing, serving as everything from the class syllabus to the assessment process. Are you engaged?
The Open Art Room provides a student-centered approach to art instruction that is inspirational, practical, and classroom-tested.
