I am a student who has just started an Art Ed sequence of classes I need
to be certified to teach. We are currently reading about and discussing
Postmodernism. And because they seem inseparable, we are also covering
Modernism. All of this information, regardless of how interesting it may
be, means absolutely nothing to me because I don't understand what it has
to do with teaching art.
A question to those of you who already teach. How, in your daily routine
and weekly planning, does knowing what Postmodernism and Modernism are
affect what you do. Why is this information important, if at all. It's
hard for me to know what to do with this info if I don't understand what
bearing it will have when I actually begin to teach.
