Abstract:
This thesis will explore my personal interaction with arts education in Tucson public schools. It will attempt to document in a creative fashion the struggles and successes that I encountered as a classroom teacher during the fall 2011 semester. The material will explore beyond that, providing my interpretation of the nature of arts education and the way it is treated by various populations, including government, educators, and the community. Additionally, this thesis will incorporate elements of my own development as a teacher and as a student of Creative Writing and Political Science. My study and creative interpretation aim to connect policy with its real implementation in the classroom, as well as examine community involvement in public schools. Lastly, the work explores the ways that my time with students has impacted my own identity as a Tucsonan and as an artist.
