A Local Art Curriculum

At my state art ed conference I was reminded that many art teachers around the state do not have a local art curriculum. With recently revised state standards and new National Arts Standards, a teacher in this situation might wonder why they would want such a thing. Well, all you have to do is ask a teacher who has one.

Time for PD and planning

Yesterday we had a county-wide staff development day (and student holiday), a day dedicated to providing time for teachers to gain valuable training within the contract day and without interfering with instruction. With any luck some teachers might have gotten a little time to do some grading or planning.
