Arts for At Risk Children: A Curriculum Development and Renewal Project for the Department of Education, Division of Public Schools by the University of Central Florida, College of Education. Final Report.
The development and pilot testing of the Children and the Arts project is outlined. Developed by the University of Central Florida's College of Education in cooperation with the Florida Alliance for Arts Education, this project sought to address the needs of Florida's young at-risk students by providing teachers with arts experience lesson plans for both prekindergarten early intervention and school-age child care programs. Source Books of lessons in art, dance, drama, and music were developed for teachers' and caregivers' use in implementing arts experience with students. The Children and the Arts Source Books of Arts Experiences were pilot and field tested in Orange and Hardee Counties of Florida. Recommendations for implementing an arts experience program in Florida's pre-kindergarten and school-age child care programs are presented. The appendix details proceedings of the Children and the Arts Conference, which was part of a Florida state-wide in-service program. (BB)
