Exploring Arts and Humanities Careers in the Community.
Andrews, Ellen; And Others
One of a series of 11 arts and humanities career exploration resource guides for grade 7-12 teachers, counselors, and students, this program planning guide suggests several curriculum models for out-of-school programs to augment traditional school courses. Chapter 1 introduces the guide and suggests its uses for administrators, teachers, and counselors. Chapter 2 describes a method for conducting a preliminary survey of community resources (organizations and people available to help the schools by providing sites for various experiences). Chapter 3 describes curriculum models. Some are short-term activities which mainly help students explore arts and humanities careers, e.g., interviewing workers, shadowing workers, going on field trips, and private study. Models for long-term experiences include independent study or volunteer project, teacher aids and student tutors, internship, and apprenticeship. The following components are presented for each curriculum model: General information (design, grade level, credit/salary, time commitment), description, objectives and student activities, and supplementary resources. Chapter 4 offers planning and coordinating suggestions in such areas as funding, legal considerations, union relationship, recruiting and preparing students, and monitoring and evaluating programs for out-of-school experiences. Concluding the chapter are brief descriptions of several programs which link arts and humanities workers with the school system. Appendixes list possible community sites for out-of-school programs, selected unions involved in arts and humanities occupations, and State arts councils which award financial grants to school systems and can also help educators with limited local sites for out-of-school programs get in touch with appropriate workers in other communities who could assist in a program.
