THE MUSEUM AND THE ART TEACHER.
HAUSMAN, JEROME J.
A COOPERATIVE, 6-WEEK SUMMER INSTITUTE WAS CONDUCTED AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART TO DEMONSTRATE SOME OF THE SPECIFIC WAYS THAT MUSEUM RESOURCES COULD BE USED TO IMPROVE THE TEACHING OF ART IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS. THE PROGRAM CONSISTED OF A COURSE IN THE HISTORY OF ART AND WORKSHOPS IN (1) MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES OF PAINTING, (2) TECHNIQUES IN DEVELOPING AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTIONAL AIDS, AND (3) METHODS OF CONDUCTING GALLERY TOURS. THIRTY-NINE PARTICIPATING ART TEACHERS DEVELOPED TEACHING PLANS AND MATERIALS THAT WERE THEN UTILIZED IN THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOOL SYSTEMS. THESE PLANS CONSTITUTED MODELS OF HOW A PARTICULAR GROUP OF TEACHERS WERE ABLE TO EXPAND THE CONTENT OF THEIR TEACHING. THE EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM HAD IMPLICATIONS FOR FUTURE EFFORTS INVOLVING MUSEUM AND ART EDUCATION PERSONNEL. THE REPORT CALLED ATTENTION TO SUCH FACTORS AS THE SELECTION AND ORIENTATION OF PARTICIPANTS, THE IDENTIFICATION AND ORGANIZATION OF PROGRAM CONTENT, AND THE NEED FOR CONTINUED INVOLVEMENT OF MUSEUMS IN EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF ART INSTRUCTION. RECOMMENDATIONS DEALT WITH THE NEED TO ESTABLISH COGNITIVE LEARNING PROCESSES THAT WILL ENHANCE CAPACITIES TO UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE WORKS OF ART. (JH)
