Education Reform Opportunities for Artists and Craftspeople. A Handbook.
The Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990, which champions arts education as an integral component of a holistic curriculum and assessment process, encourages schools to make use of resources from the community, including arts and cultural organizations, artists, folklorists, and craftspeople. This broadened approach to education provides opportunities for Kentucky's artists and craftspeople to become involved in education. This document aims to inform artists and educators of education reform and become familiar with potential funding sources. The text is organized in six sections, including: (1) "Background"; (2) "An Overview of Education Reform"; (3) "Professional Artists and Craftspeople in the Classrooms"; (4) "Professional Artists and Craftspeople in Other Education Reform Programs"; (5) "Funding and Resources for Artists and Craftspeople"; and (6) "Keeping Informed about Special Opportunities and National Grants." Appendices give "Kentucky's Learning Goals and Academic Expectations"; the "Kentucky Scoring Rubric"; and "Sample Lesson Plans" in dance, drama, music, and visual art. (MM)
