IMPROVING THE TEACHING OF ART APPRECIATION, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF TEACHING ART APPRECIATION IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
ECKER, DAVID W.
IN THE SUMMER OF 1965, A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM WAS ASSEMBLED AT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY TO CONSIDER THE PROBLEM OF IMPROVING INSTRUCTION IN ART APPRECIATION IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS. THE OBJECTIVES WERE (1) TO PRODUCE NOT LESS THAN EIGHT CORRELATED STUDIES FOCUSED ON SOME OF THE CONCEPTUAL AND OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN FUTURE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES, AND (2) TO EVALUATE THE UTILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY OF SHORT-TERM RESEARCH IN CONFRONTING THE DEVELOPMENTAL PROBLEMS. ONE JUDGE EVALUATED THE TEAM'S WORK-IN-PROGRESS, AND THREE JUDGES EVALUATED THE COMPLETED STUDIES. ON THE BASIS OF THESE FORMAL EVALUATIONS (INCLUDED IN THE REPORT) AND THE INFORMAL CRITICISM OF 35 MEMBERS OF THE INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN ART APPRECIATION, OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, SUMMER 1966, IT APPEARED THAT THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH THE PROBLEMS IT SET OUT TO INVESTIGATE. THE DISCUSSIONS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT WERE (1) A HISTORY OF THE TEACHING OF ART APPRECIATION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, (2) ART APPRECIATION AND THE ADOLESCENT MYSTIQUE, (3) VERBAL OPERATIONS IN CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, (5) THE WORK OF ART AND THE OBJECT OF APPRECIATION, (6) THE WORK OF ART AND THE TEXT THAT ACCOMPANIES IT, (7) FOUR FUNCTIONS FOR AN ART TEACHER, AND (8) EVALUATIONS OF THOSE SEVEN STUDIES.
