Models for Improving the Delivery of Services to: Gifted Students in the Areas of Visual and Performing Arts. Research & Demonstration Series in Gifted Education.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Special Education.
This report describes three model demonstration projects in Ohio school districts which focused on strategies for identifying students gifted in visual and performing arts and delivering hands-on arts education and appreciation experiences. Presented for each program is information on: identifying characteristics (district, location, school population, project director); project goals, objectives and activities; project results; promising practices and recommendations; and project products. The first project is the Black Swamp Arts Scene (Defiance) which attempted to increase arts appreciation skills of participating elementary teachers, validate a visual art and music identification procedure, involve students in a variety of arts experiences, and develop courses of study in visual arts and music. The second project, "Fields, Forms, and Fulfillments," in Athens County, developed an identification system appropriate for rural school settings at the intermediate, middle, and high school levels, initiated a pilot instructional program, and developed a collaborative partnership among school, university, and community personnel. The third project, in Wheelersburg, utilized the computer as an art medium for visually gifted secondary students. It also provided career exploration experiences for these rural students as well as inservice opportunities for educators. (DB)
