Title: Curriculum project proposal: deaf art students using K-W-L strategy
Author: Boling, Leisa
Abstract: The purpose of this project is to determine if the use of the K-W-L teaching model will foster Deaf art students' cognitive knowledge and ability to express in an art form what they have learned regarding a specific subject. The following observation was made over a three year period working with Deaf art students. Deaf students need guidelines and a method of developing their ability to determine: · prior subject knowledge; · if additional information is needed; · results of research and; · how to use the information to express their creative ideas about a topic. K-W-L provides a visual structure to record prior knowledge and document additional information a student may want to learn about a subject. It provides students with a method of recording what they learned, comparing prior and new knowledge, in addition to providing a structure for interactive classroom discourse. K-W-L has been proven to be effective with second language learners and would be an appropriate strategy to explore as a curriculum project for Deaf art students. These curriculum activities will be conducted at Rochester School for the Deaf and will explore the use of K-W-L strategy in a "Studio in Art" classroom to determine if the students can effectively utilize this strategy to express knowledge on a particular subject in an art form.
