A survey was performed of the current practice of appreciation learning within drawing and construction and arts courses at Japanese elementary and middle schools nationwide. The results were totaled, and creation was made of a "Survey Report Regarding Appreciation Learning and Guidance within Drawing and Construction Courses and Arts Courses." In this way, a variety of aspects became clear : problem points in current art education at schools, the awareness of instructors concerning appreciation learning, the contents, methods, and evaluations of appreciation learning, and the current status and problem points of university education curriculum designed to foster new teachers. Also, in the questionnaire section called "Open statements," one can read various worries and the true sentiments of teachers regarding their classes ; in this way, this Report serves as fundamental reference material that helps to close the gap between theory and practice.

In addition, for the development of curriculum models for appreciation learning, cases were collected, and further was research performed regarding appreciation learning chiefly at elementary and middle schools. Here, an attempt was made to construct curriculum models based on such case-based research. For improved model creation, research must be performed on the basis of a further increase in actual cases of appreciation learning, and the appropriateness of models must be validated. Less
