Guidelines for Arts-Centered Instructional Units
The Guidelines for Arts-Centered Instructional Units were developed over the past three years by the Curriculum Task Force of the Transforming Education Through the Arts Challenge (TETAC), a five-year national initiative by the National Arts Education Consortium that links comprehensive arts education with national and local efforts to reform our nation’s schools. TETAC is being implemented by a broad national network of stakeholders interested in reforming education by advancing the place of the arts as part of the basic core of learning in K-12 education. These guidelines are intended to integrate advances in comprehensive arts curricula with curricula reform movements within general education.
This document is intended to serve as a model to guide the development of meaningful instructional units and the evaluation of existing units; it is not a rule-bound formula or exact prescription. It is offered with the expectation that the user will become more proficient in its use over time.
