This incisive and wholly practical book offers a hands-on guide to developing and assessing social justice art education for K-12 art educators by providing theoretically grounded, social justice art education assessment strategies. Recognizing the increased need to base the K-12 curriculum in social justice education, the authors ground the book in six social justice principles-conceptualized through art education-to help teachers assess and develop curriculum, design pedagogy, and foster social justice learning environments. From encouraging teachers to be upstanders to injustice to engaging in decolonial action, this book provides a thorough guide to facilitating and critiquing social justice art education and engaging in reflexive praxis as educators. Rich in examples and practical application, this book provides a clear pathway for art educators to connect social justice art education with real-life educational assessment expectations: 21st-century learning, literacy, social skills, teacher performance-based assessment, and National Core Art Standards, making this text an invaluable companion to art educators and facilitators alike.
