Wyoming Arts: An Education Plan for Visual Arts, Dance, Music, Theatre, Literary Arts.
Wyoming State Dept. of Education, Cheyenne.
This document presents guidelines to assist educators in the state of Wyoming to develop performance based outcome objectives for the performing and literary arts. An introductory passage argues that art can promote the development of such basic skills as communication, discipline, and analytical thinking, while also promoting the general quality of life and the future view of contemporary society. The document also suggests that the arts can be an important part of special education, by reinforcing, following up on, and supplementing basic instruction. For grades K-12 there is a call for instruction for all students in the areas of visual arts, dance, music, theater, and the literary arts. Individual sections on each of the arts include detailed appendices. (SG)
