3rd Edition. Updated January, 2016.

This book provides basic information about what the job of an art teacher is. It asks future teachers to consider how/why art is important to teens (remembering that teenagers need art for different reasons than adults) and outlines how to set up a classroom for deep discussion and brave art making. This is a self-published compilation of a professor's class notes that serves as a companion text for a general "Intro to Secondary Art Education" course. It is best suited for students who are interested in contemporary art practices and progressive teaching methods. This book does not include art lesson/project ideas. Condensed format of content allows for low cost/production.
