Learn best practices for time-saving curriculum design using lessons of your choice.
“An hour of planning can save you ten hours of doing.” (Carnegie, n.d.)
In this course, learn to apply a strategic and tactical approach to curriculum planning, beginning with the end in mind. You will intentionally curate national, state, and district standards to create a foundational framework unique to your needs. Implement formative and summative assessment metrics and scaffolding processes to facilitate academic achievement for all learners with built-in checks for understanding. You will leave this course with an original curriculum map ready for implementation and practical curriculum design skills to support future curriculum endeavors.
Note: Credits earned cannot be applied to the Master of Arts in Art Education degree program requirements.
FLEX Curriculum – a flexible, curriculum designed with you, the teacher in mind. Not all teachers plan, teach or have the same budget. That’s why FLEX is designed to fit into your teaching practice, not the other way around. Use all of FLEX to meet your student’s needs, or take parts and supplement the curriculum that you already know and love. Monthly and annual subscriptions are available for individual art teachers and entire districts. A 1-month subscription is recommended for this course, but not required.
