Great Link: Curriculum Planning Documents

I love a good planning matrix!  I even have some of my own that are aligned with my curriculum, which you can download and edit on my Lessons Page. What I really love is thinking about curriculum, planning out curriculum, and making it all work and flow together.  Am I a nerd?  Anyone else feel the same? Anyhow, I was so excited when I found the Ball’s Bluff Elementary Page on the NAEA site.  They have a variety of curriculum planning docs for view and I absolutely love the different formats and ways to think about planning out the way you might teach art content.  Nothing like a spreadsheet to make me giddy!

Here is a little preview of what I found:

Enjoy browsing this site!

What is essential in your eyes to have when planning out your curriculum? What do you look for in organizational documents to help your year run smoothly?  While you are at it, check out some of my planning matrixes I am anxious to create more organizational documents to share based upon your feedback!

    I love this…..I know that for me I love organization and need it especially with art. I have to complete a curriculum map for grades K-8 to turn into my principal and any help out there is greatly appreciated. I have my own curriculum map that works for me but I want something more professional to turn in and these forms really help. Thanks!
