New National Core Arts Standards and Website Launched June 4, 2014
Help us celebrate the unveiling of standards written for and by arts educators to support quality teaching and learning! The official launch of the new website, http://www.nationalartsstandards.org/ was June 4, 2014.
These new, voluntary National Core Arts Standards are framed by artistic literacy, as outlined in philosophical foundations, lifelong goals, and artistic processes; articulated as anchor and performance standards that students should attain; and supported by instructional resources, including model cornerstone assessments that illustrate how literacy might be measured. The connective threads of this conceptual framework are designed to be understood by all stakeholders and, ultimately, to ensure success for both educators and students. Read More
