Promoting School Libraries' Support of Investigative Learning in Art Classes: A Case Analysis
Keywords:investigative learning, inquiry, school library, art classes
In this study, 25 reports of art classes were surveyed to analyze school libraries’ ability to support investigative learning in art classes and to propose methods for doing the same. The results suggest that school libraries can support all stages of students’ investigative learning in art classes, including those where students learn about ideas or concepts of the work. The most frequently reported activity was utilizing different types and characteristics of media. In collaboration with art teachers, school libraries are required to work to prepare and support students’ access to various media, in order to deepen their investigative learning.
