Fine Arts Elementary Core Curriculum: Dance, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts. Grades K-6.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This elementary core curriculum is written to communicate what students are expected to know and be able to do in dance, music, theater, and visual arts in the state of Utah. The curriculum provides the basis for professionalism and accountability for teachers, and defines the expectations and achievement standards for students. The Utah core curriculum is arranged in alphabetical order and is organized into four standards, with accompanying objectives and assessment indicators. A statement of student work clarifies the parameters of each standard. The objectives articulate specific goals to be accomplished by the student. The assessment indicators are tools designed to measure achievement of the objective through relevant performance tasks. Examples of instructional strategies and literature have been included in many instances. Standards are printed in boldface type with definitions presented in the glossary. Assessment indicators are set apart with a bullet, and all strategy examples are underlined. Correlations to other elementary core documents have been footnoted to identify possibilities for integrated instruction. (EH)
