Arts and Crafts of the Mississippi Hills. ESEA, Title IV-C, 1982-83.
Eaton, Barbara; Weatherford, Martha
An overview is presented of a 1982-83 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Title IV-C project, designed for 50 talented high school art students, to preserve the arts and crafts in the Mississippi hills area and to enrich existing arts and crafts curriculum. Steps are listed for implementing such a program, a simple program budget is provided, and program objectives and evaluation procedures are given. The major portion of the book is presented in its four appendices. Appendix A provides seven craft activities and specific techniques for making pottery, working with stained glass, using an airbrush, doing photography, carving wood, painting eggs, and constructing cathedral quilted pillows. Also included are glossaries, graphics, group pictures, photographic examples, and a scrapbook showing other projects and their creators. Appendix B presents the accountability and instructional management plan for the program and includes a general program design, a tentative time schedule, objectives arranged according to cognitive level, and an extensive program description. The program description, presented in chart form, clearly indicates the objectives, processes, and materials involved in each activity. Specific forms are given for evaluating the activities in Appendix C. A sample student questionnaire, designed to determine student attitudes and their general awareness of visual art, is provided in the final appendix. (LH)
