Developing standards-based curriculum doesn't have to mean starting your lessons from scratch. Learn how to align your teaching material with the National Core Arts Standards and your state standards, following a case study of early childhood learning in a multi-grade setting.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Develop standards-based lesson planning in your theatre classroom
  • Cross-map the National Core Arts Standards with your state standards using curriculum mapping. 

This course includes:

  • Instructional article explaining the process of curriculum mapping.
  • Sample curriculum maps developed by Jo Strom Lane.
    Video complementing the article.
  • The complete National Core Arts Standards for reference
  • Quiz to reinforce your learning
