The Lincoln Center Student Program for 1971-72 was planned as a comprehensive program in the performing arts for senior high schools selected by the New York City Board of Education and located in federally designated poverty areas of New York City. The program was intended to provide a concentrated instructional program within the English curriculum of each school which would relate the performing arts to literature, media, language growth, and general learning improvement. It was also to cause a general improvement of awareness, understanding, knowledge and appreciation of the performing arts by involving students and teachers in a performing arts curriculum. Several program objectives were enunciated, including: (1) providing an intensive instructional program in visual and aural literacy; (2) increasing verbal and non-verbal communication skills; (3) sharpening perceptions so "listening and looking become active hearing and seeing"; (4) increasing the store of information and facts about the performing arts; (5) developing a performing arts vocabulary to enable students to speak and write critically about these arts; (6) increasing opportunities for productive communication between artists and young people; (7) increasing responsiveness to the arts by providing opportunities to originate, participate in and observe performances; (8) assisting teachers in classroom instruction through seminars, planning sessions and workshops; and, (9) evaluating student responses and work as evidence of increased interest and knowledge.
