Alaska: Arts in Education Handbook.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
The purpose of this handbook is to help educators in rural and urban areas of Alaska develop a more comprehensive arts in education program. Parts of the handbook can be used by educators in other states as well. The introductory section to the handbook defines and discusses the goals of a comprehensive arts program. How to establish goals for such a program, suggestions on getting started, and a sample teacher survey are provided in section two. The third section, dealing with arts-in-basic-education, focuses on how to integrate the arts into the basic curriculum. Provided are samples of art and suggestions for art activities directly connected to the areas of energy saving ideas, interdisciplinary arts, math, exploring environments, social studies, careers, and language arts. Specialized arts education which includes classes or activities for students with special needs as well as those one-time experiences designed for entire student bodies is discussed in the fourth section. The fifth section treats community arts resources. The addresses and telephone numbers of organizations in Alaska willing to provide assistance to art programs are provided. Resources from outside the state of Alaska are then presented. Included are art organizations, grantsmanship resources from the Grantsmanship Center in California, sources of reproductions and art periodicals, and suggested readings. (Author/RM)
