New E-Book! Designing Your Art Curriculum: An Art Teacher’s Handbook
I’ll admit it, when it comes to designing art curriculum, I am kind of a nerd… Which is why I am really excited to share with you today what I’ve been working on for the past few months. As you know, putting together an art curriculum is like putting the pieces of a puzzle together: a puzzle that is NEVER finished. You will always be tweaking until your last year of teaching draws to a close. Here is what’s hard. You are so busy! You don’t always have time to research best practice in curriculum development, so you just settle for what you are already doing, maybe throwing in a new lesson here or there.
That is why I wrote this. Because I get it. I’ve been there.
After going through a frustrating Curriculum Review process in my own art department, I wanted to create for you the resources I WISH we possessed when reviewing and re-writing our curriculum. So much precious time was wasted researching, and as we rushed to complete in a few hours what should have taken days, I look back and think our curriculum could have been much stronger if we just had the right support and resources to get the job done and fulfill our vision.
This book is meant to be a guide to enhancing each and every one of the learning experiences you already do, finding new ways to add to your existing curriculum and help to make your curriculum feel complete. Nothing will be left behind! This book is meant to be a customizable resource meant to inspire you. It’s not a “have to” guide, it’s a “here are a bunch of ideas, now take them and put them together in the way you best see fit” guide.
