Multi-Arts Service Program, E.C.I.A. Chapter 2. Final Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Div. of Quality Assurance.
The District of Columbia's Multi-Arts Service Program, whose first year of implementation (1982-83) is evaluated here, is a multi-disciplinary program in music, dance, theater, and visual arts designed for public school students in grades K-9. The program's primary objectives are to increase student awareness of and interest in the arts, student recognition of the arts as a vital force in their lives, and student interest in pursuing the study of the arts. The assemblies, lecture-demonstrations, and workshops of which the program is composed are developed and presented by teachers and students from Duke Ellington School of the Arts. The program's three primary objectives were achieved during this first year, primarily as a result of participation in the lecture-demonstrations. Inadequate bus service complicated implementation of the latter. The workshops were not held due to late implementation of the program and scheduling difficulties. (CMG)
