Increasing Elementary Teachers Knowledge in Discipline-Based Art Education through Inservice.
This paper describes a program developed and implemented to increase an elementary school staff's basic knowledge of discipline based art education (DBAE). The target group consisted of one preschool teacher, three kindergarten teachers, three first grade teachers, one second grade teacher, and two third grade teachers. The program consisted of inservice instruction in the four disciplines of art, scanning techniques, technology and other resources, and a DBAE implementation period. Success was measured by the target group's results on a posttest of basic knowledge in DBAE, successful writing of art criticism questioning strategies, implementation of all four disciplines of art into a unit of instruction, and utilization of technology resources. All of the program objectives were met with the target group improving dramatically in all areas. Appendices include a DBAE pretest, principal's statement, DBAE posttest, an art criticism questioning checksheet, and a unit checksheet which includes the four disciplines of art. Contains 12 references. (EH)
