Action Research on Environmental Issues Incorporated into Senior High School “Art and Life“ Curriculum
Art and Life curriculum
This study was an action research of incorporating environmental issues into senior high school “Art and Life” curriculum. The objectives of this study were: 1.To analyze the content of the Art and Life curriculum incorporated with environmental issues; 2.To investigate implementation and effectiveness of the curriculum in Datong Senior High School; 3.To propose suggestions on design and implementation of the Art and Life curriculum incorporated with environmental issues. After a review of literature related to environmental education, the Art and Life curriculum guideline, and discourses on environmental art education, the researcher designed three lessons of environmental education that could be integrated into the Art and Life curriculum, including “artists’ green plans”, “the must-know green trend”, and “our creative green plan for YiTong Street”. These lessons were later implemented on 40 students of a third-year class in the senior high school instructed by the researcher, and related data were collected during and after the implementation. Through analysis of the collected data, this study proposed the following conclusions: 1.The integrated Art and Life curriculum should cover a wide array of issues, including global environmental issues and environmental arts issues. 2.The integrated Art and Life curriculum could induce learning motivation in students. By using pluralistic teaching strategies, teachers could achieve the teaching goals of environmental education and those of art creation at the same time. 3.The experiential learning activities and art creation experiences could help increase students’ art literacy and knowledge of environmental education, facilitate their interaction with the community, and also develop more community awareness and local senses in them. 4.The analysis of students’ learning outcomes warranted the positive meanings and values of incorporating environmental issues into the Art and Life curriculum. 5.Based on research results and findings, this study proposed some suggestions with respect to teachers, curriculum design and implementation, school administration, and future research, respectively.
