An Art Teacher's Perspective: The Value of Museum Resources to the Common Core
Gray-Rodriguez, Chrissy
Journal of Museum Education, v40 n3 p250-256 2015
Visual art teachers have often been the producers and directors of their own curricula, turning to various resources and objectives (local, state, and national) to form their own sets of standards. Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have provided new opportunities to integrate the arts into content-based curricula. The author, a classroom art teacher, describes how museum resources and professional development workshops have helped her not only integrate the arts into core subject lessons, but how to demonstrate evidence of cross-curricular learning, and advocate for the importance of art in teaching critical thinking skills.
