Eisner, Elliot W.
The contributions of education in the cultural arts to students in the Fresno City Unified School District are evaluated as part of PROJECT DESIGN, funded under ESEA Title III. There are at least four areas or domains in which artistic learning is possible and which can be used to formulate elements in an arts curriculum. These are the productive, critical, cultural, and philosophic domains. The objectives for each of these domains are generally described for average students at the primary, intermediate, and secondary levels. Some of the principles underlying the selection and organization of learning activities are identified, and the necessary instructional support media and evaluation tools are described. Data on the status of the arts programs in the Fresno schools and some conclusions about the adequacy of the programs are presented. (MF)
