Impact: Interdisciplinary Model Programs in the Arts for Children and Teachers. Final Report.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park.
This is a final report on five demonstration programs developed by four professional arts education associations. The program, which had a primary concern of retraining teachers, had for its goals: the reorientation of the school climate towards the arts and affective learning; development of educational programs of high artistic quality in each art area; conducting of inservice programs to retrain those involved in the program; the infusion of the arts into all aspects of the school curriculum; and utilization of artists, performers, and educators from outside the school system. This report presents an overview of the project and its evaluation procedures. The programs at each of the five sites are described as to setting, objectives, strategies for change, evidence of change, and concluding observations. The results of the evaluation discuss the findings pertinent to each of the objectives, as well as general observations on the effects of the program and recommendations in regard to curriculum change in general and in the arts specifically.
