An examination of the goals and objectives of the art curriculum as it relates to the goals and objectives of education and the development of the child from the holistic point of view. Students investigate theories of curriculum as found in current professional resources and research projects, plan teaching strategies using current methods recommended for the teaching of art, and evaluate this area according to specific assessment tools. This course continues the building of meaningful art experiences begun in ARE 311, focusing on middle–secondary levels of learning. Management techniques for administering and budgeting will accompany the construction of a K–12 curriculum.
