PREPARATORY STUDY FOR A HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM IN THE FINE ARTS FOR ABLE STUDENTS.
RICE, NORMAN L.
THIS PRELIMINARY STUDY WAS DIRECTED TOWARD (1) DEVELOPING A RATIONALE AND SERIES OF COURSES FOR A 5-YEAR PROGRAM IN THE FINE ARTS FOR ABLE STUDENTS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS, (2) FINDING WAYS TO RELATE THE EXPERIENCES IN THE ARTS TO OTHER CURRICULAR EXPERIENCES, AND (3) DEVELOPING WAYS TO PREPARE TEACHERS FOR THE NEW FINE ARTS CURRICULUM. A SERIES OF MEETINGS BROUGHT TOGETHER CONSULTANTS, COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVES, AND PUBLIC SCHOOL OFFICIALS. AS A RESULT OF THE MEETINGS, TWO WORKING PAPERS ON FINE ARTS INSTRUCTION WERE DEVELOPED. (THEY ARE PRESENTED IN THE APPENDIXES OF THE REPORT.) OTHER MEETINGS OF EXPERIENCED TEACHERS WERE DIRECTED TOWARD FEASIBILITY STUDIES, PROCEDURAL PLANNING, AND DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHING METHODS. THE EXPERIENCED TEACHERS REPORTED THAT--(1) A VALID AND MEANINGFUL PROGRAM IN THE FINE ARTS COULD BE DEVELOPED, AND (2) SUCH A PROGRAM WOULD HAVE SIGNIFICANT VALUE IN AIDING YOUNG PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THE FUNCTION OF THE ARTS IN AMERICAN SOCIETY. IN THE TIME AVAILABLE, THE OVERALL PROGRAM COULD NOT BE DEVELOPED IN DETAIL. THE DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM CONDUCTED WAS IN THREE PHASES--(1) VALIDITY OF WORKING PAPER OBJECTIVES, (2) BASES FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, AND (3) STEPS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP CLASSROOM MATERIALS. (JC)
