The Attitudinal Changes Produced By Intensive Art-Related Experiences for Culturally Deprived Students and the Resultant Effects on Participating Student Teachers and Classroom Teachers. Final Report.
Weidenheimer, Ruth E.; And Others
This experimental program was designed to test four theories dealing with an intensive series of art and art-related experiences presented to a culturally deprived elementary school population by senior-year student teachers using performance-based modules of instruction. The Visual Arts experimental program covered a ten-week period involving six student teachers from the College of Education, Florida Technological University, and 24 classroom teachers and 541 students in grades one through six in the Grand Avenue Elementary School. Twelve of the classroom teachers and two of each of the six grades comprised the control group, with the remaining 12 classroom teachers and two of each of the remaining six grades providing the pilot group. The student teachers spent the entire school day of every week at the elementary school. Each student teacher was responsible for two pilot classrooms of the same grade for the total 10 week period. An art lesson was presented by the student teacher every day in each classroom. The remaining time was spent in the same classrooms observing, identifying student needs, developing art-related materials to be used by the classroom teacher in other disciplines, and in individual supportive advice and instruction.
