INSTANT ART, INSTANT CULTURE: THE UNSPOKEN POLICY FOR AMERICAN SCHOOLS
By Laura H. Chapman.
Chapman critically examines the reasons for the token educational programs
many schools offer in all the arts, including music, dance, and theater, but
with particular emphasis on the visual arts. She writes with conviction on the
importance of effecting change in attitudes and school practices that actually
prevent many children from studying arts on a regular basis. Chapman devotes
much of the book to providing suggestions for improving school instruction in
Among the topics covered are: What should be taught in an arts program and
who should teach it; why a school curriculum should include the arts, sciences,
and humanities as core subjects for all students; how to improve teacher
education programs; what models for change have been suggested by
various panels and federal groups, and how effective they would be.
