"Making it work in the Classroom," Presentation by Meredith Davis
Meredith Davis’ presentation was wonderfully insightful and offered a context for many of the methods I use as a teaching artist. The methods she outlines combine very well with many of the methods Sister Corita Kent used in her assignments particularly those contrasting imagery and text captions/written content. Here is a link to the Corita Kent site:https://www.corita.org/education.html
Sister Corita Kent’s 10 ‘rules’ (https://www.corita.org/component/content/article/21-information-in-education/19-corita-kent-art-rules.html) are ideal for preparing any classroom for the SDI projects. The 10’rules’ are a more nuanced and engaging starting point than the How Might We video.
Meredith Davis’ presentation was the one I found most engaging and insightful of the SDI presentations. Her use of tangible examples and interesting sidebars is masterful, and enhanced the impact of her presentation.
Hi Mark! I just happened upon the ’10 rules’ you posted here and am so thankful. After my first go at a design lesson in 7th grade math yesterday I was wondering if I did a disservice to students that they didn’t analyze the mathematics behind their designs in the same class period. Rule 8 addresses this, and helps me let go of any regret and re-focus on the next steps! So, thank you for making me aware of Sister Corita Kent and her admirable perspective on how we should learn.
