Guidelines: Curriculum Development for Aesthetic Education.
Barkan, Manuel; And Others
These guidelines for grades K-12 are designed to aid the curriculum planner in writing programs, courses, and units of instruction for aesthetic education in the schools. They provide (1) a foundation for curriculum development, which presents a concept of aesthetic experience and identifies the general goal of aesthetic education, (2) an explanation of how content, approaches to study, and student activities may be identified for units of instruction, (3) a demonstration of procedures for designing units, (4) a discussion of how units might be combined into courses and programs, and (5) guidelines for evaluating effects of curriculum plans on classroom events. Appendices contain four aids to curriculum writers: a thesaurus of words and phrases to describe educational activities; 1,686 curriculum sentences for paradigm descriptions of educational activities in dance, literature, music, theatre, visual arts, popular arts, and the general environment; 1,195 concepts bearing on curriculum, curriculum content, and student activities; and a workbook containing 10 checklists and two worksheets for curriculum writers.
