North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This booklet is a revision of the original publication and provides a framework for developing art curriculum for K-12 programs in dance, music, theater arts, and visual arts. The frameworks consist of goals and objectives in each of these arts and are developed for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade levels. Features in this version include: (1) a strong emphasis on communicating, reading, writing, and, where plausible, mathematics throughout each arts curriculum; (2) integration of learning among the four arts areas and among other subject areas; (3) emphasis on critical and creative thinking; (4) greater focus on knowing about, understanding, and appreciating a variety of world cultures and historic periods; (5) ability to use knowledge, skills, and processes learned in the arts and apply them to other disciplines and to life beyond school; and (6) where appropriate, integration of concepts such as conflict resolution, teamwork, sensitivity to and tolerance of others and their views, heightened perceptual awareness, and synthesis of ideas to arrive at a logical deduction, and workforce preparedness.
