Clover, Faith, Comp.; And Others
The document contains suggestions for developing a goal-based instructional program in art for grades k-12. It was designed as a model for curriculum development committees and classroom teachers by the Oregon State Department of Education. It is presented in five parts and nine appendices. Part one introduces the program. Part two discusses goal-based planning in art related to state, district, program, and course goals. Part three explores various planning activities, including teaching methods and the importance of sequence in presenting historical background, art concepts, vocabulary, techniques, display, discussion, and evaluation. Part four lists and enlarges upon program and course goals. Program goals include studying history of art, how art affects the environment, art as a career and hobby, design, the interrelationship of art and culture, and creating works of art. Each broad program goal is presented with student objectives and specific course goals for various grade levels. Each course goal includes activity suggestions, vocabulary, and a list of needed materials. Part five suggests approaches for assessment. Nine appendices cover definition, health and safety, art criticism, storing and displaying artwork, competitions, the handicapped, and careers. A bibliography and list of Oregon state art organizations conclude the document. (CK)
