[teacherartexchange] Graduate Survey

Dear Fellow Art Educators,

I am a high school art teacher in the Southeast Delco
School District, as well as a graduate student of the
University of the Arts. I am working towards my M.A.
degree in the Art Education program.
To assist with my project, I have created a survey to
help me conduct my research. Your participation is
completely voluntary and filling out this survey would
be a courtesy to a fellow art educator. All names will
be kept in confidence according to University of the
Arts protocol.
The research for my thesis deals with identifying the
specific issues and commonalities within the urban
high school art room. I am enclosing my survey in this
letter and requesting your participation in the study.
This survey is going to be used as partial fulfillment
of my Masters research in Art Education.
I will be attempting to use this survey to gather
opinions, perceptions, and attitudes of practicing
urban art teachers to create a practical guidebook
that may be particularly useful for classroom use. I
will provide all participating teachers with a copy of
my completed work.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration
completing my survey. It is greatly appreciated.


Christopher Sweeney
