Indian Education for All Online Book Club Course
IEFA and the Visual Arts
This self-paced online course serves as an opportunity for participants to explore Indian Education for All through the lens of the Visual Arts. Participants will review and apply The Art of Storytelling: Plains Indian Perspectives; A Beautiful Tradition: Ingenuity and Adaptation in a Century of Plateau Women’s Art; Crossing Boundaries Through Art; and Learning Through Art: Corwin (Corkey) Clairmont and Juane Quick-to-See Smith, all available on the Office of Public Instruction website.
Participants will use these materials in completion of a selection of instructional activities and design lessons appropriate for use in their own setting. Students will use additional source materials via weblinks, interlibrary loan and/or scanned documents of the Moodle classroom to realize their course objectives. Through comparison of the National Standards for the Arts and Indian Education for All’s Essential Understandings, participants will develop lesson planning respecting the mandate of IEFA while reflecting on artistic, cultural and artistic problems and designing artistic solutions. Most required materials will be provided in the course Moodle or through the OPI website, though participants may need to seek additional resources at their local museum or school district art department or library.
This course is the equivalent to 30 classroom hours (30 OPI renewal units), which is the equivalent of 2 university credits. This is a self-paced course, but do not expect to complete it in one sitting! Course participants must be comfortable working independently and be self-motivated to complete all work within the flexible time frame.
