The Arts Toolkit places at your fingertips literally hundreds of useful and informative K-12 materials to help teach dance, drama, music, and visual arts.
What It Is
The Arts Toolkit Web Site offers lesson plans, idea cards, glossaries, video clips, and special features in dance, drama, music, and visual arts. Each discipline has its own section and special features that help make that discipline come alive. All resources are aligned with Kentucky academic standards but can be adapted to the needs and standards of other states.
Boxed Toolkits in Dance, Drama, Visual Arts, and Music are available for purchase. Each toolkit includes about eight hours of video segments offering instruction, demonstrations, interviews, studio visits, and performances; a binder with lesson plans (with assessment components), glossaries, responding guides, guides to state arts resources, and special features such as informational guides to cultural art and periods and styles; a set of Idea Cards; posters; and discipline-specific features such as the Kentucky Virtual Art Museum on CD-ROM (in Visual Arts) and the From Page to Stage CD-ROM (in Drama).
