Children and the Arts: A Source Book of Arts Experiences for Pre-Kindergarten Early Intervention Programs Developed for Florida's At-Risk Children.
University of Central Florida, Orlando. Coll. of Education.; Florida Alliance for Arts Education.
Designed to assist administrators and teachers conducting prekindergarten early intervention programs for at-risk children, this curriculum guide outlines age-appropriate arts experiences that are process-oriented rather than product-oriented. After introductory statements, content focuses on learning activities in the visual arts, dance/creative movement, drama, and music. Each section includes all or several of the following subsections: (1) comments on age-appropriate activities; (2) guidelines for implementing activities; (3) outlines of lessons; (4) suggestions concerning community resources; (5) guidelines for creating a space for activities; (6) recommendations on supplies; (7) lists of materials and bibliographic resources; and (8) sheet music. Lesson plans provide objectives, list materials, advise on preparation and demonstration of the activity, and suggest methods to increase children's participation. Individual sections also intermittently include suggestions on modifying the lesson for older children, organizing an activity center, and/or elaborating the activity in subsequent lessons. (RH)
