Visual and Performing Arts Curriculum and Instruction

National Core Arts Standards in 2016. The standards are CREATE, PERFORM/PRESENT, RESPOND, and CONNECT. The standards and resources from the Core Arts have provided a helpful structure for collaborative curriculum and assessment work for K-12. Teachers have developed standards-based common rubrics that outline progressions of learning for each standard in music and art from K-12.
