Great Minds Great Ideas: Transgressive Aesthetics: When Children Curate the Classroom

March 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Dr. David Rufo’s research examines the self-initiated creativity of children in educational settings. During his time as an elementary classroom teacher, Dr. Rufo documented the array of creative actions his students initiated. In his research, he posed the question, “What would a classroom look like if the students were given permission to organize, decorate, and alter the space according to their personal aesthetic?” This lecture will respond to that question and then explore the benefits and challenges of allowing children significant creative agency in the elementary classroom.
