Arts Education Inservice Training Project for Curriculum Specialists and Other Administrators. Final Report.
Kase-Polisini, Judith; And Others
An evaluation of the Artists-in-the-Schools (AIS) Program of Hillsborough County, Florida, showed that there was a need for more communication between AIS and the schools. Therefore, an arts education program was designed and implemented by AIS staff. Invited participants included curriculum specialists, principals, supervisory personnel, school board members, all artists employed for the AIS Program, and state officials. Six 1-day workshops were held during the school years 1981-82 to provide participants with an orientation to the AIS Program areas and insight into creativity and aesthetic experience; "hands-on" experiences in arts education; and ideas for integrating the AIS Program into their school programs. The developers wrote performance objectives for each workshop and then designed rating scales to measure these objectives. General evaluation results showed that 60 percent of the participants received enough information to design an AIS Program for their schools and communication between AIS and other educators improved. (Handouts, evaluation instruments, and sample action plan worksheets are appended.) (NE)
