The Fourth R: A Visual Arts Curriculum Handbook.
Hastings, Kathryn Kusche
This handbook contains ideas for basic visual arts production in grades K through 6, and gives suggestions for using the ideas in art and interdisciplinary lessons. The book is organized into 5 sections. The Introduction provides a Table of Activities that serves as a reference to the art elements addressed by specific activities. Section 2, "Art Ideas," includes activities in "Drawing"; "Color"; "Painting"; and "Paper." Suggestions are given for linking these activities with interdisciplinary subjects. Many activities given in Section 2 are coded to link with subjects given in Section 3, "Art Integrated Lessons." Lesson plans that integrate art with "Science"; "Health"; "Language Arts"; "Social Studies"; and "Mathematics" are given in the third section. Each idea is also cross-referenced to the student learning objectives presented in Section 4, "Art Management." Student learning objectives are designated by appropriate grade and experience level and by applicable Art Element: Color, Line, Pattern, Shape and Form, Texture, and Value. The last section, "Bibliography," contains an index, reproducible patterns, and worksheets. (MM)
