Since 1996, our goal has been helping students achieve their dreams.
That is where our services come in.
The Art Institute of Tampa, a branch of Miami International University of Art & Design, has partnered with Adopt-a-Classroom to donate money for art supplies in four local high schools.
I couldn't be more pleased with the result.
Saturday morning for High School juniors and seniors has never been more engaging or inspiring. Take a course, develop a portfolio which can be used to request proficiency credit* toward a degree at an Art Institutes school, which can save time and money. Invite friends and family to a closing Showcase.
What matters most to the argument I am going to make?
* Students who successfully complete a course will receive a certificate of completion. College Bound courses are non-credit bearing and do not transfer into our academic program offerings or the offerings of any other institution. However as part of the course you will have the opportunity to develop a portfolio that you are able to request proficiency credit. Proficiency credit is awarded based on the proficiency credit policy defined in an institution’s academic catalog. The cost of the College Bound courses varies between $325 and $350. This cost is waived for any student that has an application and completed essay on file with the school. Check with the school you are interested in attending for exceptions and details, as not all programs are offered at all locations. Individual location participation is subject to change. Online College Bound courses are not available to residents of the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New Mexico, and Oregon.
Overall, what’s more important—the similarities or the differences?
The exercise has the added benefit of becoming an in-class exam review much more effective than having an instructor re-teach material already taught in class. The exercise is almost completely led and directed by the students themselves. Furthermore, the instructor could decide to expand the exercise by introducing and starting it in one class, but conducting the presentations in a later class meeting. In this way the presentations could be more formal, and it would meet the goal of having students work together outside of the classroom if this were a particular goal of an instructor.
