Art Education: A Guide to Curriculum Planning. Bulletin No. 95185. Second Edition.
This planning guide encourages reformation of the Wisconsin art education curriculum toward a less linear, sequential, and compartmentalized approach. The new program draws on recent knowledge of how students learn and how curricula components can be integrated. Focusing on themes and concept development, the guide supports independent thinking and problem solving, and favors experiential activities. Clear links between national standards, state goals, district curriculum, classroom instruction, and student assessment are established. The guide is divided into 12 sections: (1) Philosophy; (2) Curriculum Development; (3) Visual Learning; (4) Art and Society; (5) Design Art; (6) Studio Art; (7) Planning for Instruction; (8) Planning for Integration; (9) Incorporating Education Goals and Standards; (10) Planning for Assessment; (11) Aspects of an Effective Program; and (12) Appendixes, which include State Standards for Licensure, Art, Curriculum, and Instruction; the Wisconsin Administrative Code; the Family-Community Partnership in Schools Checklist; and Resources.
