A Coordinated Fine Arts Program in a Rural Setting. Final Project Report.
Livingston-Steuben-Wyoming Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Leicester, NY.
A solution developed to correct the lack of cultural experiences for rural children in art, drama, dance and music is evaluated in this final project report. A summary of findings lists the number of school programs and their budgets. The nature and number of subjects and activities employed in attacking the problem are briefly described. The emphasis on student participation and interest is evaluated from tables giving pretest and posttest responses to rating scales administered to students. A difference in behavior patterns is discernible in favor of the group involved in the project. The data received from a family questionnaire indicates approval of the existing programs. The outcome of continued and expanded programs in most schools seems partially due to successful efforts to keep costs low. Modifications of the original project plans and recommendations for other areas with similar needs are noted. Specific requirements for the most successful implementation of this type of project are discussed. (KSM)
