Source Book of Selected Materials for Early Childhood Education in the Arts.
McIntyre, Barbara M.
The Central Atlantic Regional Educational Laboratory's program in early childhood education included the development of curriculums in the arts. These curriculums, intended to promote esthetic sensitivity in young children through encounters with the arts, involved experienced teacher-artists and the training of classroom teachers. This source book was developed for interested teachers who could not participate in workshop classroom training projects sponsored by CAREL. Part A describes written materials: books, articles, manuals, and workbooks. The items in Part A are divided into seven sections: philosophy, curriculum development, art, dance, literature, music, and theatre arts. Part B discusses multi-media materials: films, filmstrips, records, and transparencies. Each item selected is considered relevant, accessible, and recent, and is recommended by an arts supervisor or active arts teacher. Analysis of items is comprehensive, includes direct quotes when possible and recommends additional recommended sources. (MH)
