Toward a New Era in Arts Education: Interlochen Symposium
ACA Books, 1988 - Art - 138 pages
While it is evident that excellence exists in U.S. arts programs, there are not enough outstanding arts education programs in existence, and too few students gain the basic knowledge or skills that are requisite for the maintenance of such an important aspect of our civilization. The papers presented at this symposium reflect the opinions of a diverse group of arts professionals, although all called for improvements in the quality and quantity of commitment to the arts. The papers presented are: "Developing Professionals for Arts Education" (K. Martin; J. Ross); "Planning Long-Term Improvements in Arts Education" (R. Glidden; T. Shannon); "Assessing Arts Curricula in the Schools: Their Role, Content, and Purpose" (P. Lehman; R. Sinatra); "Promoting Partnerships in Arts Education: Teachers, Artists, and Scholars" (C. Dorn; L. Jones); "Promoting Partnerships for Arts Education: Organizations, Agencies, and Institutions" (R. Bell; J. Katz); and "Adopting Strategies for Advocacy and Action in Arts Education" (S. Kaagan; S. Chapman). Recommendations of the discussion groups and the proposals of the Symposium are included. (PPB)
