All the Arts for Every Child. Final Report on the Arts in General Education Project in the School District of University City, Mo.
Madeja, Stanley S.
This document indicates that the project was designed for schools that could utilize strong community cooperation. Six goals are listed: a) to provide experiences in all the arts for all students at every level in the University City school system, b) to permeate the general education program with arts concepts in order to improve the level of arts instruction, c) to develop instructional units to provide a sequential arts learning experience for students, d) to experiment with a behavioral model as a basis for structuring an art program, e) to develop generalizable plans that might be used to implement similar projects in other settings, and f) to involve regular classroom teachers in the process of curriculum development. The document includes sections on the staffing of the program and the development of instructional units on the folktale, redesigning the community, and editing--a way of life. Also described in the document are the complementary resources provided by the program (including the central media laboratory), the artist-in-the-schools component and provisions for special events and performinggroups. It is stated that progress reports, interviews, and instructional unit evaluations were used to evaluate the project. (JA)
