Social Studies: World History Through Art and Music.
Foreman, James M.
This course of study was written as part of a total effort to revise curriculum to fit the quinmester (five 9-week periods) administrative organization of the Dade County Schools. The major intent of this publication is to provide a broad framework of goals and objectives, content, teaching strategies, class activities, and materials all related to the described course of study: music and art history. The course is described as one which makes use of audio visual materials in a study of art and music through the ages. It is designed for students interested in the arts but are not necessarily art students. Emphasis is on the ways art and music reflect the society of the artist through his perceptions; students explore attitudes and values of different periods in the western world. The guide is divided into a broad goals section, a content outline, objectives and learning activities, and materials. Some of the goals are the enabling of students to distinguish selected periods of art and to analyze art as an expression of social existence. The eight units, one for each broad goal, are outlined in column which indicate specific topics, behavioral objectives, learning activities, and references to materials, e.g., texts, films, slides. Recommended materials, supplemental public resources, and alternative student and class materials are listed in a final resource section. Related documents are: SO 002 708 through SO 002 718, and SO 002 768 through SO 002 792. (Author/DJB)
