    Dear Art Educators, There are several curriculum guides in the Files section of Art Education list. There is also a file outlining the National Standards.

      Dear Art Educators,

      There are several curriculum guides in the Files section of Art Education list.
      There is also a file outlining the National Standards. Those should
      help you plan your map.

      If you are asked to write a curriculum map and have nothing to go
      on..... First contact the county education department. They should
      have a guide there.... If not, contact your state department of
      education. If that doesn't help.... search for good curriculum on
      line. Several good links have been posted in the past. Here is a link
      that explains all that a curriculum map should do:
      http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/instruction/ela/6-12/Curriculum%20Mapping/Index.htm
      This site has templates that you can adapt.

      I found many curriculum map resources for visual arts on line.

      This publication from NAEA might be helpful:

      No. 256 Creating Curriculum in Art

      By Phillip Dunn. Creating Curriculum in Art, newest in NAEA's Point of
      View Series, outlines the theoretical orientations for art curricula,
      the five critical areas for art curriculum development, an examination
      and analysis of curricular approaches, and a discussion of student
      evaluation and art program assessment. This book translates art theory
      into curriculum-and into daily practice for the art teacher,
      curriculum coordinator, and for the school administrator! Creating
      Curriculum in Art is a central text for anyone teaching art
      curriculum; anyone redesigning an art curriculum; anyone writing and
      planning an art curriculum; and anyone assessing an art curriculum.
      Creating Curriculum in Art is for the student, the young professional,
      as well as the experienced art educator! It is indispensable for
      teacher centers, libraries, and staff development collections.
