  Place-Conscious Pedagogy: Using the Local to Enrich Art Curriculum and Frame Critical Reflection - Jesse White

Through an exploration of the connections between identity of self and identity of place, and art’s potential to serve as a tool for sensitive inquiry, this project pushes past surface definitions of community-based art education and place-based education to create space for a place-conscious pedagogy. The author pulls together issues of community culture, student empowerment, and teacher education to illustrate how the local can be used to engage students in meaningful artmaking and inform processes of critical reflection.
