Shoreline Special Education. Music and Dance. An ESEA Title III Project. Final Evaluation.
Shoreline School District 412, Seattle, WA.
The goals of this project were to solve the educational problems of providing an instrumental music curriculum and achieving physiological and social changes through dance for children in special education classes (K-12). Innovative methods emphasized were: 1) neuromuscular skills set to music; and, 2) a modification of the Orff methods and musical instruments for handicapped pupils. A music and dance summer camp and a music and dance dissemination workshop were also developed. The evaluation reports indicate statistically the number of children who have participated, a measure of behavior changes that have occurred, and an evaluation of curriculum developed. Measurement of progress in the primary music classes was evaluated by a 23 item checklist. Instruments were developed to measure student performance in the Orff program, the secondary level guitar and ukelele program, and the elementary dance program. Tables show that all classes demonstrated most of the attempted objectives. Student attitude was measured by a Face Attitude Scale and responses showed a highly favorable attitude. Questionnaires on the camp and curriculum showed a positive parental response. (KSM)
