Description:

This paper discusses an article that explores socio-constructivism, a creative student-centered approach to teaching in today's American arts classroom. The author notes that although the article, "Teacher Research in the Socio-Constructivst Art Classroom" by Eliza Pitri is often repetitive and pedantic and contains a detailed description of the components of socio-constructivism as well as practical instructions for teachers who wish to implement it. The paper concludes with a brief analysis of how the use of this approach might impact pedagogy in the author's school.

From the Paper:

"Expanding upon the work of earlier scholars, Pitri maintains that the socio-constructivist approach recognizes that people construct knowledge from the events and phenomena they come across in their lives. Citing a handful of scholars who have devoted themselves to the study of socio-constructivist epistemology and its implications for classroom instruction, Eliza Pitri writes that learners who actively pursue knowledge instead of simply sitting in a desk passively absorbing knowledge as articulated by someone else are learners who aggressively integrate new information and experiences into their pre-existing knowledge base; along the way, they revise and re-interpret "old" knowledge as part of an ongoing effort to reconcile it with "new" knowledge...."
