Fine Arts Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
The Fine Arts--Music, Dance, Theater Arts, Visual Arts--Standards of Learning are part of Virginia's efforts to provide challenging educational programs in the public schools. Knowledge and skills that students acquire through Fine Arts instruction include the ability to think critically, solve problems creatively, make informed judgments, work cooperatively within groups, appreciate different cultures, imagine, and create. These Standards of Learning were developed through the efforts of educators, curriculum specialists, and Fine Arts organizations. The booklet is divided into four sections: (1) "Music Standards of Learning" (Grades K-12, Instrumental, Vocal/Choral); (2) "Dance Arts Standards of Learning" (Introduction, Middle School Exploratory Dance Arts, Dance I, Dance II); (3) "Theatre Arts Standards of Learning" (Introduction, Middle School Exploratory Dramatics, Theatre I: Introduction to Theatre, Theatre II: Dramatic Literature and Theatre History); and (4) "Visual Arts Standards of Learning" (Grades K-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12).
