Improving Student Visual Art Skills Through the Use of Direct Instruction and Student Mentoring by J. C Burke( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes a program for implementing a formal visual arts program into the elementary curriculum in an attempt to increase the academic performance of elementary students. Third-grade students in a self-contained classroom in a small, rural community in central Illinois were the subjects of the study. The problem of a lack of visual art skills brought on by insufficient art instruction and implementation were documented by teacher observation, student performance, and instruction by untrained teachers. When surveyed, the faculty reported a feeling of inadequacy when teaching the visual arts because of a lack of knowledge, time constraints, cost factors, and inadequate facilities. Two major categories of intervention were the design and implementation of a formal visual arts program for elementary students conducted by a certified art instructor and the training of high school students as mentors for elementary students. Post intervention data indicated an increase in visual art skills, a transfer of art skills into other curriculum areas, and an increase in appropriate social skills of high school mentors. However, a noticeable increase in academic skills did not appear to occur. Twelve appendices contain the research questions and responses. (Eh)

Human Resources Task Group. Task 4: Public School Improvement to Enhance Quality of Life around Military Bases( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chelsea is a small, densely populated city of 1.8 square miles located northeast of Boston across the Mystic River. Median household income is $24,144. and 24 percent of families live below the poverty line. The unemployment rate is 5.3 percent, nearly 40 percent greater than the Massachusetts state average. According to the most recent U.S. Census figures (1990), the city has a total population of 28,710; it is estimated, however, that this figure omits as many as 3,000 unreported immigrants. Although Chelsea was once a strong, thriving community with a long proud tradition of helping new immigrants become integrated into American society, by the late 1980s, poverty, crime, and corruption had brought the city to the point of fiscal collapse and political paralysis. More than 50 percent of the students entering school lacked an adequate background in the English language. In 1988-89, only 24% of high school students took the SAT test, and only one out of every five graduates said that they planned to attend a 4-year college. One in four teenage girls was pregnant or a mother. Fifty-two percent of those who entered high school did not graduate. In June of 1989, Boston University began to manage the public schools of Chelsea, Massachusetts, under a unique agreement known as the Boston University/Chelsea Partnership. The contract negotiated with the city gave Boston University a mandate to transform the Chelsea Public Schools through June of 1998. The Partnership's continuing mission is to rebuild an entire school system and eventually to serve as a model for the reform of urban education. A key element in the success of the Partnership is the involvement of IBM. IBM provides a computer network to link family day care providers with educational resources outside of their homes and with each other. It is an intrinsic part of the Early Childhood program. This report tracks the Partnership's progress over the 1997-98 school year in working towards 17 long-term goals
