Explain why it is important to have a curriculum in art that accommodates diverse learners.

Directions: Be sure to make an electronic copy of your answer before   submitting it to Ashworth College for grading. Unless otherwise stated,   answer in complete sentences, and be sure to use correct English spelling and   grammar. Sources must be cited in APA format. Your response should be four   (4) pages in length; refer to the “Assignment Format” page for   specific format requirements.

Many children with special needs   spend at least part of the school day in special education classrooms, where   they receive special instruction, sometimes quite didactic, adapted to their   unique needs (Hendrick & and Weissman, 2007). The open-endedness and   process orientation of art can serve as a reprieve from the highly focused   tasks often used in special education. Imagine that you are in an early   childhood education setting, and you are the lead art teacher. Using this   information and support and guidance from Lesson 3, determine how you would   create a curriculum in art that accommodates diverse learners.

Part 1: Explain why it is important   to have a curriculum in art that accommodates diverse learners.

Part 2: Provide an example of an   activity for children with each of the following:

  1. Emotional and intellectual challenges
  2. Visual impairments
  3. Hearing impairments
  4. Orthopedic impairments

You may use the ideas in the   textbook as springboards, but do not copy them. Come up with ideas of your   own that show you understand the needs of the child with that particular   challenge or impairment.
