Art Teaching Reading List

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by bookbeetle, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. Hi! I'm sorry if this isn't the right area to post this, but since it is dedicated to art and design, I thought it would be appropriate.

    I am starting a PGCE in Art and Design in September and I would like to start getting ready and read some informative and/ or inspiring material concerning art teaching, as I am very interested in the academic side of it. I looked online and the only thing I came across that was vaguely relevant was Helen D. Hume's "Art Teacher Book of Lists", and still is not quite what I was looking for.

    Has anyone got some interesting recommendations for me? From ideas for lesson planning, pedagogy, and art related reading I am up for anything! I look forward to your recommendations.

    if your an arts specialist the art bit is the easy bit, its the teaching part you need to read up on, i highly recomend a book called "getting the *** to behave" a very easy to read and follow book on behaviour management.
     
  5. I'm starting an Art PGCE in September this year as well. I'm currently doing PTLLS course which is a lower level course aimed at adult education but many of the theoretical aspects are similar. I've just bought "Teaching Today" by Geoff Petty which was highly recommended for both my PTLLS course and PGCE. It's a huge book, very well written and easy to read and contains a LOT of information about teaching generic theory and I think it'd be a great introduction to some of the ideas you're likely to come across on the PGCE.
     
  6. I am currently on the PGCE Art and Design course and am coming to the end of my final placement. I know the position you are in because I felt exactly the same this time last year, but my biggest advice would be, do not read anything, just go out, enjoy your time, see your family, friends, everyone, go on days out, go to the gym, the cinema, the park for a walk, because when you start, all that will stop. It's a really full on, difficult course. As soon as you start you will be told specific books that you need to read and any others wont mean anything, don't buy any. Uni should send you a book list anyway.
    I really didn't think it would be this full on but it really is, and you really need to enjoy your free time and relax!

    Enjoy
