Visual and Performing Arts Framework for California Public Schools: Kindergarten through Grade Twelve.
Lundin, Janet, Ed.; Smith, Theodore, Ed.
The framework is organized to assist curriculum planners in designing a curriculum that has a triple thrust--one that develops the unique characteristics of each of the arts, interrelates the arts, and infuses the arts into the general curriculum as appropriate. Chapter 1 discusses the commonalities of the arts. Chapters 2 through 5 examine the unique aspects of each discipline: dance, dance/theatre, music, and visual arts. The individual discipline sections follow similar formats and include discussions of special terms, objectives, program development, students with special needs, multicultural education, careers, and evaluation techniques. Chapter 6 provides a guide for interrelating the arts and for integrating the arts in the total learning process. The concluding chapter discusses what is needed to develop an adequate program for all of the arts. Appendices contain criteria for evaluating instructional materials and an annotated bibliography of references for each discipline. (RM)
