A Guide to Curriculum Planning in Arts for EEN [Exceptional Educational Needs] Students. Bulletin No. 0410.
Ross-Thomson, Betty
The guide is intended to help local Wisconsin school districts develop comprehensive K-12 programs in the arts for students with exceptional educational needs (EEN). Section 1, the introduction, introduces the rationale and goals for the guide. Section 2 discusses general curriculum planning, the developmental levels of students, and the process of instructional program development. Section 3 defines and describes specific handicapping conditions and lists helpful teaching techniques for particular handicaps. Section 4 explains the procedures used to identify EEN students and outlines the role of parents/guardians, administrators, and art educators in planning an appropriate educational program. Described in Section 5 are the various programs or settings established by federal and state law to provide educational services. Section 6 emphasizes the importance of teaching not only the arts but life skills through the arts. Section 7, the longest, presents ideas, teaching activities, and lesson plans for six art forms: visual arts; media arts; music; drama and theater; movement and dance; and language arts. Section 8 focuses on assessment and evaluation of student progress. Section 9, the appendix, lists informational sources, professional organizations, and 135 references. It also summarizes relevant state standards, lists teacher preparation programs, and provides a glossary. (DB)
