Arts Impact: Curriculum for Change. A Summary Report.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park.
The summary report of the Interdisciplinary Model Programs in the Arts for Children and Teachers (IMPACT) is presented in three sections: Introduction, Project Sites, and Evaluation Results. The introduction consists of an overview, describing the background and site selection, and of the evaluation procedures for the first and second years of the program, with tables of data and notes on the limitations of the project and project evaluation. Part II concerns the five project sites, noting the settings, objectives, and administrative structures, and strategies, such as inservice programs, workshops, visiting and resident artists, community volunteers, and resource teams. Part III, Evaluation Results, presents findings, observations, and recommendations. The findings focus on common program attributes and changes in teachers' attitudes and behaviors as related to project objectives. Observations of the effects of and on administrators, teachers, students, and curriculum change are made. Recommendations for those interested in fostering curriculum change with regard to curricula in the arts, and also with regard to other areas of the curriculum are directed to curriculum planners/funding agencies, school personnel, and evaluators.
