Dr Shari Stoddard

I have been the director of Art Education in the Department of Art at Central Washington University since 2000. My Ph.D. is in Curriculum and Instruction with a cognate area in Art Education from Indiana University. My M.S. degree is from Indiana University in Art Education, and I received a B.F.A. from the University of Michigan in Oil Painting and Ceramics. Previously I taught at Ball State University and the University of South Carolina. I have presented at international, national, regional, and local conferences on topics such as including aesthetics and art criticism in elementary school curricula, cooperative learning strategies, and reflective thinking. I received the 2001-2003 Western Region Binney & Smith Crayola Dream-Maker Grant, and in 1998-1999 the Mary McMullan Teacher Incentive Grant from the National Art Education Foundation. My chapter Including Aesthetics in a Second Grade Curriculum: It Can Be Done has recently been published in the book Teaching Art in Context: Case Studies For Preservice Art Teachers.
