Editorial Essay: Marginalia On Marginality And Diversity, Harold Pearse Jan 1992

Editorial Essay: Marginalia On Marginality And Diversity, Harold Pearse

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The 1992 NAEA Conference in Phoenix highlighted a series of sessions as "'A Celebration of Diversity," a kind of "'conference within a conference," Organized in response to Arizona's decision not to establish an official state holiday in honour of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, as an alternative to boycotting the convention, the forum provided art educators with an opportunity to explore how issues of diversity and marginality relate to our field. As could be expected, the relationships are diverse, involving not only racial, cultural and ethnic considerations, but also issues involving gender, disability, economics and class ...

Integrating People Experiencing Disabilities Into Community Arts Events: Model Project And Guidelines, Doug Blandy, Karen Branen, Kristin C. Congdon, Linna Muschlitz

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

People experiencing disabilities, and their advocates, are actively demanding the right to live, work, and recreate in integrated and normalized community settings. Community based art education events will be impacted by this in-process civil rights movement. This article focuses on the means through which art educators can make community art events accessible to people experiencing disabilities. Segregated community events, like the Very Special Arts Festivals, are discussed as they are able to accommodate community integration. Guidelines for creating barrier-free environments are included.

Finding Meaning For Postmodernism, John Wilton Jan 1992

Finding Meaning For Postmodernism, John Wilton

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Recent media hype throughout the land has brought wide-spread conversation on the phenomenon known as postmodernism. True to its nature, the media (while propelling the rapid dissemination of the term itself) gives us very little insight into the history/meaning/concepts/origin/definition or effects of the now quite fashionable designation.


Reviews: The Playful City: A Vision Of The City Through The Eyes Of Young Children, Joanne Kurz Guilfoil Jan 1992

Reviews: The Playful City: A Vision Of The City Through The Eyes Of Young Children, Joanne Kurz Guilfoil

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Review of The Playful City Conference Program: The Playful City is a Vision of the city through the eyes of young people. It is not a vision of painted flowers on walls or a city where only children live. It is a fundamental rethinking of how we understand, design, implement and use the urban environment. It is an effort to create a city that meets the needs of all its citizens.


The Impact Of Dramatic Improvisational Strategies On The Oral Comprehension Skills Of Children With A Low Socio-Economic Background, Heather A. Timms Jan 1992

The Impact Of Dramatic Improvisational Strategies On The Oral Comprehension Skills Of Children With A Low Socio-Economic Background, Heather A. Timms

Theses : Honours

Children with a low socio-economic background frequently fail to reach a high level of scholastic performance during their school years. The school milieu is a potential contributor to this scenario, as schools are generally designed for the attributes, needs, and skill levels that are characteristic of children from middle socio-economic backgrounds. As a result, these children require specific intervention to enable them to function within this 'alien' system. Drama offers unique and exciting possibilities in this field. Previous research endorses the use of improvisational strategies for this specific purpose; and the theories propounded by learning and language theorists and drama ...


Secondary Non-Art Teachers' Perceptions Of Characteristics Of An Effective Art Teacher, Christine M. Morton-Lo Jan 1992

Secondary Non-Art Teachers' Perceptions Of Characteristics Of An Effective Art Teacher, Christine M. Morton-Lo

Theses : Honours

Since 1986, the offering of art in secondary schools as a Tertiary Entrance Examination subject has secured its position as a school subject. However, there is increasing pressure on art and on other subjects offered in secondary schools in Western Australia, to demonstrate a contribution to Australia's social, economic and cultural priorities. In an increasingly competitive educational environment, all subjects need to negotiate viable positions as courses of study. As a result of the implementation of the Better Schools Report 1987, school-based decision-making groups have been established to assume responsibility for matters which had previously been the concern of ...


Teacher Backgrounds, Resources, Facilities, Personnel And Time Allocation: A Survey Of Music Education In Metropolitan Pre-Primary Schools, Anna-Therese Kania Jan 1992

Teacher Backgrounds, Resources, Facilities, Personnel And Time Allocation: A Survey Of Music Education In Metropolitan Pre-Primary Schools, Anna-Therese Kania

Theses : Honours

The pre-primary year of schooling, the first year of formal education for many children in Western Australia, has the potential to capitalize upon young children's rhythmic and auditory responsiveness and can provide a solid foundation upon which further musical understandings may be built. Music educators such as Kodaly and Orff have stressed the advantages of children's early exposure to music. (Lawrenoo, 1978, p. 108; Leak, 1985/86, p. 8). The Western Australian music syllabus "Music in Schools K-3” (1980, p. 3) highlights the significance of music education in early childhood and warms that "to neglect music at this ...
