Arts Education Standard Course of Study Frameworks, K-12: Dance, Music, Theatre Arts, Visual Arts. Revised.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This booklet provides a framework for developing K-12 arts curriculum in dance, music, theater arts, and visual arts. The frameworks consist of goals in each of these subjects and are developed for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade levels along with suggested objectives. Significant differences in this updated 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 area 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 in some arts areas, concepts such as conflict resolution, teamwork, sensibility to and tolerance of others and their views, heightened perceptual awareness, synthesis of ideas to arrive at a logical deduction, and work force preparedness are dealt with as integral aspects of study.
