I too will start student teaching in Jan. All of my lesson plans have the
DBAE weaved into them. It is a good thing, but I know of no other way since
I am new. I think it helps your lesson to have a purpose other than just art
production. Take for example, Art Criticism; The average person will spend an
average of 7 seconds looking at a work of art in a museum. The Art Criticism
part of the DBAE will break it down and stretch a criticism out to about 45
minutes. A student will really get to know the artist, their background, the
possible meaning of the piece, and see what elements & principles were used.
Questions like, "what would you do different?" could be asked. The neat thing
is when a student is having trouble with their own art, you could bring up
what was discussed in an earlier critique. This is just one part of the DBAE
I have touched on. I think it is a good thing and it will also save you when
you are asked to do something like, a poster contest or craft project. It
seems to keep one on track with the curriculum, but what do I know. Good luck.
