Beane, Mildred B.
Ideas and suggestions are presented on how to develop student thinking skills in the performing arts. Performing arts include music, dance and movement, drama and theater. The examples of arts focusing on performance given in this monograph are intended to be merely representative, and teachers are encouraged to apply the concepts to their own situations. The guide consists of the following four chapters: (1) Arts in Education, (2) Curriculum Integration, (3) Application of Thinking Skills, and (4) Instructional Issues in Performing Arts, a chapter which includes discussions of singing, dancing, and acting as performance arts, and how they link to the school's curriculum. Appendices consist of the following materials: Guidelines for Selection of Choral Literature; Concert Program Samples; Evaluation of a Professional Performance; and Sample Rating Scale for a Study. An 18-item bibliography is included. (AS)
