Building a Case for Arts Education: An Annotated Bibliography of Major Research, 1990.
The first section of this monograph describes research trends and major issues in the arts education field, such as: (1) some of the major arts education advocacy pieces; (2) current policy and practices in arts education; (3) current trends in arts education research; and (4) building a case statement for arts education based on research. The second section lists bibliographic citations from the research literature that validate each of the 11 points of a case statement proposed on behalf of arts education based on current education concerns. The third, and final, section contains annotations of the 88 sources cited in the monograph arranged by discipline (multidisciplinary studies, dance, music, theater, and visual art). The sources include qualitative and quantitative research on dimensions of the arts and other variables; journal entries that are compilations of research on dimensions of the arts and arts education; writings that are the accumulation of years of research by well known education and arts researchers; and evaluations and assessments of arts projects and programs. The second and third sections of the monograph are cross-referenced. (Author/DB)
