Abstract (Summary)

This is a quantitative non-random experimental study involving two ceramics classes in a California public high school. One class will be the control group of the study while the other will be the experimental group. The control group will be taught in a traditional unit of ceramics instruction (TUCI), while the experimental group will be taught in a critical pedagogy unit of ceramics instruction (CPUCI).

This experimental study rests on three hypotheses. Hypothesis 1, an experimental group of high school ceramics students exposed to a CPUCI whereby the students are active participants in the curriculum, are hypothesized to demonstrate a significant increase in their civic engagement between pretest and posttest, while in high school and in their intentions after graduating. Hypothesis 2, A control group of high school ceramics students exposed to a TUCI is predicted to demonstrate no significant shift in their civic engagement between pretest and posttest. Hypothesis 3, the experimental group of high school ceramics students taught with a CPUCI, are hypothesized to demonstrate a significant increase between pretest and posttest regarding their civic engagement in comparison to a control group of high school students taught with a TUCI.
