General Knowledge and Arts Education. An Interpretation of E. D. Hirsch's "Cultural Literacy."
Smith, Ralph A.
This volume explores the antecedents of E. D. Hirsch's concerns and discusses his ideas and their significance for an arts education curriculum. This book makes recommendations for a comprehensive, five-phase elementary level through secondary level curriculum, suggesting content for an intensive secondary level curriculum. The volume further addresses the tradition of general knowledge, the reception of Hirsch's "Cultural Literacy" by various groups, contextual knowledge, and multiculturalism. A plan to promote more culturally literate teachers of art concludes the volume. (RJC)
