Designing Your Art Curriculum
Designing your art curriculum is perhaps one of the most personal acts you will do as an art educator. It’s like putting together the pieces of a puzzle, hoping that each part will fit together perfectly. It can be very difficult to make sure you are designing a curriculum that is balanced and meets the needs of your students and your teaching style.
As we enter an era of the “canned” or “pre-done” curriculum, art teachers must empower themselves to become experts at curriculum writing to drive home the fact that curriculum is not one size fits all. Through this class you will research what some of the best districts and programs in the nation are using for their art curriculum, as well as observe different styles and types of art curriculums being used and marketed today. Using this data as ammunition, you will design your own comprehensive toolkit with all of the necessary pieces to implement a curriculum that fits in best with your teaching, your students, and their needs. Don’t let someone else be in the driver’s seat when it comes to your art curriculum. Design your own today!
