A Course of Study for Art is Elementary (Teaching Visual Thinking Through Art Concepts) K-6.
Talbot, Walter, D.; And Others
This publication, first in a series of two intended for Utah's elementary teachers, outlines objectives for teaching visual thinking through art concepts. The second part in the series entitled "Art Is Elementary" (ED 158 872) provides teaching strategies and lesson plans for each objective. The subject areas in which the program is intended to be taught include math, science, social studies, communications, music/art, health/physical education, safety education, foreign languages, and career education. The first two sections of this publication contain a discussion of the program's philosophy and present administrative guidelines for implementing the program. The listing of instructional objectives, which comprises the bulk of the publication, is then presented. The objectives are organized by grade level from preschool through grade seven. Maturity level goals are indicated for each objective. The maturity goals are intellectual, ethical-moral-spiritual, emotional, social, physical, environmental, aesthetic, and productive. Other information provided in code form for each objective includes subject area in which the objective is to be taught, grade level, and relationship of each objective to the general curriculum goals. A glossary and pronunciation guide for artists' names and art terms follows the listing of objectives. The publication concludes with three appendices containing a chart illustrating reading skills taught in the program, a chart of holiday and seasonal art activities, and a student progress record form.
