Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
The objective of the fine arts survey course outlined in this guide is to give high school students an introduction to understanding the four arts (visual arts, music, dance, and drama), their relationships, and how they each touch our daily lives. The guide begins with an introduction that contains a survey test, discusses the course rationale, and lists instructional materials. The course is comprised of 10 units: I-The Arts in Our Lives; II-Language, Media, and Materials of the Visual Arts; III-Symbols and Images of Graphic Art; IV-Achieving Literacy in the Visual Arts; V-Art as Environment; VI-Discovering and Creating; VII-Materials of Music; VIII-Form in Music; IX-Roots of American Popular Music; and X-Standard Concert Repertory. Information provided for the units includes focus, expected outcomes, background readings for teachers on the unit content, discussion/reaction topics, learning activities, words to recognize, teaching strategies, references and sample test questions. Throughout the course, students are involved in class discussions, are encouraged to actively participate in the creative process, and are assisted in developing their aesthetic sensitivity. (RM)
