Connections: The Arts and the Integration of the High School Curriculum.
Boston, Bruce O.
This report seeks to build a case for the potential value of arts-centered cross-disciplinary approaches as a possible way to integrate an often-fragmented high school curriculum. Stressing that there is no universal panacea for the complex and multi-layered issues of school reform and change, the report suggests a possible vision that could lead to a new milieu for what teachers teach and how students learn in U.S. high schools. Sections of the report include: (1) "Purposes and Premises of the Report"; (2) "Cross-Disciplinary Study"; (3) "The Arts and Cross-Disciplinary Study"; and (4) "Current Contexts and Future Prospects." Two appendices and a 105-item bibliography accompany the text. (EH)
