Secondary Art Guide 8-12: Curriculum Guide and Content Resources.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria. Curriculum Development Branch.
Arranged into two major parts, the guide offers practical and motivating techniques for teaching secondary art. The first section, a brief curriculum guide, presents a rationale, program goals, learning outcomes, program scope and sequence, course list, and evaluation information. The largest part of the document is a resource guide providing resources, suggestions, activities, and approaches for achieving learning outcomes at all levels of development (foundation, basic, advanced) and in all degrees of visual expression. All of the approaches are organized around six learning outcomes for secondary art programs; imagery; the elements and principles of design; historical and contemporary developments; reasoned criticism; the applications of materials, tools, equipment, and processes of art to the visual expression area; and vocabulary. Topics include art foundations; ceramic art; image, technique, and material in drawing and painting; traditional and contemporary practices in the graphic arts; sculptural art; and textiles and the cultural tradition. The chapters have been organized so that readers can combine resources from any content area for use in planning lesson units. (LH)
