You may think of becoming a chef or make it as your future career after college graduation. Support opportunities for the public to experience and engage with the arts in meaningful ways throughout the province. You will acquire new analytical skills, forge powerful creative partnerships, and explore the relationship of the arts to other sectors in education.
Finally, Partnership for 21st Century Skills (2009) encourages the teaching of life and career skills that students need in the twenty-first century. You can also pursue a career in a wide range of professions that draw on your major studies in arts and which are complemented by your education studies, perhaps publishing, editing and writing, community program development or education journalism.
Teachers can browse the Artist in Residence Roster to find an experienced teaching artist to lead a hands-on workshop in their school. We are a model for international educational leaders who have visited from China, Brazil, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia and Japan to learn about how we do arts education.
If you are going to compare the two, we actually need to make educational hour longer and teachers stricter (and more qualified) throughout our educational system (music, math, physics, reading, etc). Browse the reports and other resources on these pages for insights into improving and expanding arts education for young people.
Choice-based art education supports multiple modes of learning for the diverse needs of students (Douglas, 2013). Such education comes about when the learner produces an artefact in satisfying a particular need in the society. Spending time in nature through outdoor education improves standardized test scores, grade-point averages and develops skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and decision making.
