The Network Notebook: A Casebook for the Arts in Education.
Eight New York state school districts received funding to establish models in arts education and to form an Arts in Education (AIE) network. The purpose of the AIE is to share with the rest of the state its findings and experiences. The model sites share a number of essential characteristics, among them: (1) coordination; (2) art and music specialists; (3) regular involvement with arts and cultural organizations; (4) an arts advocacy role; (5) interdisciplinary study; (6) and the superintendent's personal interest. The partnerships that each model program established with area arts organizations are listed. Each program is described in depth according to goals, strategies, and a summary. Other New York arts education programs (e.g., Arts-Infused Social Studies Curriculum), funding suggestions, and related service organizations are listed. The appendix contains samples of curriculum and staff development activities, an AIE Caravan Course (suggested field activities), and a 9-item AIE bibliography. (PPB)
