Guide to Performing Arts Programs in Elementary and Secondary Schools. Final Report.
Collier, Nina P.; And Others
Artist-teachers, administrators, and other educators will find the elementary and secondary guidelines useful in formulating the objectives and methods of teaching the performing arts. The underlying assumption is that providing children with opportunities to observe, listen, and react to exciting performances leads to educational experiences, both affective and cognitive, which are of inestimable value. Three major parts emphasize the necessity for cooperation among educators, artists, administrators, and parents. Part one explains the principles, objectives, and philosophy of the programs and, further, offers some effects and evaluation of the theatre arts programs. Outstanding examples of selected programs are described in Part II. Although the emphasis is on music programs, other topics dealt with are drama, dance, pantomime, poetry, and puppetry. In Part III, practical suggestions are provided for implementing and using performing arts programs in the school. Information is given on how to design and build programs and on the role of school personnel and the school itself. Appendices include chapter supplements, sources, and selected bibliographies. (SJM)
