Fine Arts and Physical Education. Minimum Standards Implementation Series.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
One of a series of documents prepared in conjunction with the revised minimum standards adopted in 1983 by the Ohio State Board of Education, this publication outlines the minimum standards for fine arts and physical education courses and provides course-of-study suggestions for kindergarten through 12th grades. It also defines fine arts credits, possibilities for laboratory courses, educational options, and a list of available materials and consultants. The document is presented in five sections. The first chapter--making up the majority of the document--covers suggestions for developing courses of study at appropriate grade levels in each of the following disciplines: dance, drama/theater, music, visual arts, multidisciplinary arts, physical education, and handicapped students and course-of-study development. The second chapter outlines high school units of credit in fine arts. A fine arts course must meet twice a week and provide a minimum of 120 hours of instruction for a unit of credit. The third chapter defines laboratory courses credit needs. Physical education courses get one half unit of credit for 120 hours of instruction. Chapter four outlines educational options for fine arts and physical education courses; these include educational travel, independent study, and mentor programs. Chapter five provides a list of materials and services available to schools through the Ohio Department of Education. (MD)
