This is a short course of learning brought to you by the State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education, serving arts education across the nation through our members.
The release of the 2014 voluntary National Core Arts Standards presented a major shift in conceptualizing arts education in the United States. The new arts standards establish a contemporary vision for teaching and learning in the arts (dance, media art, music, theatre, and visual arts). This course is designed to help educators read, understand, and apply the arts standards. Major topics include:
a snapshot of the background and history of the standards-development process,
an examination of artistic literacy and how the standards are written to support this important goal,
a review of the performance standards by arts discipline, and
additional tools and resources that support the 2014 arts standards.
Act I, Artistic Literacy in the Classroom answers these questions and more: Why were new arts standards created? What are the broad goals of the new standards? How are the arts standards organized? How might the new arts standards inform teaching and learning in my twenty-first century classroom?
If you are looking for a chance to delve into the 2014 national arts standards, this course is for you. It will help you construct your own knowledge about the standards. Once you understand the basic tenets and features of the new standards, you will discover new ways to think about art education, what you teach, and how you teach it.
This course is designed to complement ARTS 122, Curtain Up! An Introduction to the National Arts Standards, a broad overview of the main components of the arts standards.
