Louisiana Arts Content Standards. State Standards for Curriculum Development.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
This document presents guidelines for what every K-12 Louisiana student should know and be able to do as a result of studying the four strands of fine arts: dance, theater arts, visual arts, and music. Following introductory and explanatory information, the contents are organized by strand. Each section begins with a focus paragraph explaining the strand or discipline's importance to the overall education of students. A standard statement gives a general description of the knowledge acquisition expectations. Designated content areas within each strand coincide with the four fundamental components of discipline-based art education (DBAE): creative expression, aesthetic perception, historical and cultural perception, and critical analysis. Specific benchmarks in each content area of the strand are listed for grades K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Charts, a glossary, references, and acknowledgements are included. (MM)
