Carroll, Karen Lee
This report reviews a program designed to help talented high school students explore the arts. In the first of five sections, major program activities are defined as those intended to increase the students' self knowledge, knowledge of work in the arts, and ability to relate the two in career decision making. Emphasis is on the engagement of working artists to address the student's specialized and interdisciplinary needs. Supportive services for parents, a high staff-to-student ratio, training in an alternative setting, and preservice training for artists as teachers are also mentioned as program activities. A participant summary is included. Section 2 evaluates the attainment of student, parent, and process objectives. For example, the first objective, increasing the student's self knowledge, examines student reflections and reviews the program processes. Processes are described as individual conferences, daily assignments, multiple talent exploration, work evaluation, and problem confrontation. In section 3, anticipated changes and recommendations such as those related to work accreditation, regional participation, new facilities, and improved scheduling are included. The fourth section discusses the major dissemination activities. Related materials are appended. The final section briefly reports on special activities such as attempts to reduce sex stereotyping. An annual report abstract is also presented. (For the evaluation report, see CE 017 745.) (CSS)
