South Carolina Visual and Performing Arts Curriculum Framework. Field Review Draft.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
Arts education reform in South Carolina led to the development of frameworks for dance, drama/theater, music, and visual arts education that were organized around a common set of curricular components. Aesthetic perception, creative expression, historical and cultural heritage, and aesthetic valuing form the basis of comprehensive education in the arts. The first section of the document discusses arts education in the state and in the nation, provides a definition of the arts, and states the mission and essentials of art education. The section on curriculum, instruction, and assessment addresses utilization of the four curricular components in arts programs. This section describes student presentations, educational diversity, and assessment purposes and techniques. The third section emphasizes administrative issues of scheduling, staffing, and teacher preparation for arts programs. For a quality arts program, the fourth section presents the need for materials, facilities, and resources for arts programs. Frameworks for dance, drama, music, and visual arts education for K-12 follow with information on lessons, materials, and activities. The appendix lists resources for arts programs. (CK)
