The arts and its various disciplines can stand alone or can join to support and supplement other content areas. Proficiency in the arts includes creating, performing or presenting art, recognizing artistic qualities in works of art, and understanding the historical and cultural contexts in which art is created. This guide for teachers states that Oregon's students in grades k-12 can choose from five disciplines to achieve the arts standards: music, dance, the visual arts, theater, and cinema. The benchmarks were written to define developmental levels of achievement for each content standard. The guide is divided into the following sections: "Introduction" ("Arts Education in Oregon"); "Standards" ("Oregon's Arts Standards"; "National Standards for Arts Education"; "What Students Should Know and Be Able to Do in the Arts"); "Curriculum and Instruction" ("Roseburg"; "Sweet Home"); "Assessment" ("Arts Assessment"; "SAT Scores of Students in the Arts"; "Formalism Drawing Student Response Sheet"); and "Resources" ("Critical Success Factors for Achieving District-Wide Arts Education"; "The Role of the Arts in Brain Development and Maintenance"; "Arts Education Web Sites"; "Content Standards for the Arts").
