Summary

This curriculum framework presents a philosophy of arts education, synthesizes current research, and sets learning standards for students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The curriculum framework's core concept is that experience in the creative process is essential for all learners, and that, in the arts, this process involves solving problems with skill and imagination, discovering new questions, ideas, and objects, or interpretations of existing works. According to the framework, learning in, about, and through the arts develops each learner's capacity to make meaning from experience, respond to creativity, and contribute to society. The curriculum framework is divided into the following sections: "Overview of the Arts Framework";"Guiding Principles"; "Habits of Mind"; and "Arts Content." The Guiding Principles section is subdivided into: (1) "Arts Education for All Students"; (2) "Multiple Intelligences through the Arts"; (3) "Arts Education and Human Development"; (4) "Comprehensive and Sequential Arts Programs"; (5) "Multicultural and Interdisciplinary Connections"; (6) "Assessment in the Arts"; and (7) "Partnerships for Arts Education." The Arts Content section is subdivided into: (1) "Creating and Performing Strand"; (2) "Thinking and Responding Strand"; and (3) "Connecting and Contributing Strand." Contains three appendices, 27 references, and selected resources. (BT)
