K-6 Visual and Performing Arts Curriculum Guide
This curriculum guide for elementary classroom teachers includes integrated lessons at each grade level based on the content standards in the Visual and Performing Arts Frameworks for California Public Schools demonstrating how learning in the arts is an integral part of learning across the curriculum.
The K-6 guide includes lessons in dance, music, theatre and visual arts developed by teams of teachers across subject areas. The process was facilitated by LACOE, LAUSD, and national arts integration consultant, Karen L. Erickson. A matrix lays out per grade level (K-6) the key arts standards and how they support content standards in other core curriculum areas. This guide should be helpful both in developing units of instruction for students and in designing development programs for teachers.
