Abstract

This study is about the choice-based classroom philosophy of Teaching for Artistic Behavior. It investigates the outcomes for students in light of the cognitive possibilities of Elliot Eisner and Nel Noddings’ theme of care. I utilized the method of education criticism in order to gather observations from my own TAB classroom in combination with reflections on the development of strategies and structures within the classroom. Observations of student actions and conversations provided data that were evaluated to find evidence of Eisner and Noddings’ possible outcome. The data revealed that in a structured environment student choice was able to help students achieve these results. This study concludes that structured student choice aids student agency and maintains the student as the maker of meaning, aligning with the writings of John Dewey.
