Implementing the New Visual Arts Standards: How Teachers are Using the Unit Design Template to Support a Comprehensive Art Experience
The new standards provide opportunities to plan units of study that fully integrate the four artistic processes of creating, presenting, responding and connecting. See how the unit design template is both flexible and adaptable to your teaching situation. Learn from an early career art teacher how she is using the template to integrate the standards into a thematic unit for fifth graders; and from a veteran art teacher how he is using the template to tailor instruction. Find out more about sharing your lesson designs with art educators through the Lesson Design Challenge Pinterest Board!
Presenters: Dennis Inhulsen, NAEA President and Chair of the Visual Arts Writing Team; Elementary Art Teachers Alison Marchbanks and Bob Reeker.
Upon completion of an NAEA webinar, participants will receive a Certificate of Participation with (1) clock hour of professional development per session, as designated by NAEA. Clock hours provided upon completion of any NAEA professional learning institute are granted for participation in an organized professional learning experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction and can be used toward continuing education credit in most states. It is the responsibility of the participant to verify acceptance by professional governing authorities in their area.
