South Carolina Visual and Performing Arts Academic Achievement Standards. Field Review Draft.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This document describes what students should know and be able to do in the visual and performing arts prior to graduation from South Carolina high schools. The standards are based on the "South Carolina Visual and Performing Arts Framework," adopted by the South Carolina State Board of Education in 1993. Standards for performance in dance, drama, music, and visual art are organized by major content strands: (1) aesthetic perception; (2) cultural heritage; (3) creative expression; and (4) aesthetic valuing. The document, which may serve as a guide for curriculum planning, outlines specific expectations for all students by the end of grades 2, 5, and 9, in drama, music, and visual arts; and at the end of 2, 5, 8, and 12 in dance. It is recommended that at the end of each of these grades students' performance should be measured to determine the progress they are making towards achieving the standards set forth. A glossary of terms is provided for each of the four discipline areas. (MM)
