Taking a Second Look: Educational Connoisseurship Revisited

by Elliot W. Eisner 1991

I was surprised but gratified that among my various publications McLaughlin and Phillips selected '"Educational Connoisseurship and Criticism: Their Form and Functions in Educational Evaluation." As much as any of my early writing, that piece perhaps develops most clearly my discomfort with then prevailing models of evaluation. In that article I described a different model, one rooted in the arts, and provided an example of what work using this model would look like. In addition, I described what: I thought its special utilities in education might be. Because I have no reason to believe that readers of the NSSE Yearbook also read the Journal of Aesthetic Education (and every reason to believe that they do not), I will describe the main lines of argument in my earlier essay and then take a "second look."
