Education for Aesthetic Awareness. Final Report. July 1, 1977-June 30, 1980.
Robiner, Linda G.
The final report of the Education for Aesthetic Awareness project (Cleveland Area Arts Council) summarizes the development and implementation of Master's Degree courses for teachers and specialists in grades K-12. The document is presented in fourteen sections. The first five sections provide background of the program; goals and guiding principles; qualifications and methods of selecting faculty and participants; and lists of faculty and participants. The focus of the program was on expressive qualities of the arts. The approach was interdisciplinary and the study of the arts was seen not as a means to better learning in other subjects but as an end with its own authenticity and value. The next three sections outline the syllabus, class scheduling, and assignments with accompanying bibliographies. The four quarter courses consisted of Introduction to Aesthetic Awareness, Foundation of Aesthetic Education, Principles of the Arts and Their Applications in Education, and Planning for Change in Aesthetic Education and Building a Comprehensive Arts Curriculum. The bibliography includes general readings on the arts and the arts in education and specific readings on poetry, visual arts, dance, theatre, film, music, architecture, and child development. The following two sections discuss funding and evaluation techniques. The final three sections present program documentation, publications, speeches, and examples of printed materials often in the form of newspaper and journal articles on the Education for Aesthetic Awareness project.
