“Teaching and learning frameworks are research-informed models for course design that help instructors align learning goals with classroom activities, create motivating and inclusive environments, and integrate assessment into learning.”Yale University

During the past two years, RIDE has developed curriculum frameworks to provide guidance on implementation of education standards. The frameworks are part of an effort to develop relevant curricula. To create them, RIDE has drawn on the expertise of an interdisciplinary team of educators.

Now is the time to create a comprehensive quality arts curriculum. An arts curriculum framework will help all stakeholders understand the National Core Arts Standards and envision how they can be used for arts education.

RIDE’s Arts Education Coordinator Carolyn Bennett is embarking on the process of developing an arts framework. She is asking for input from a diverse group of stakeholders, and, at inflection points, will ask for your help. Bennett and the arts education team are kicking off the framework process by asking you to assist in creating a vision for student success in the arts.

How you can do your part and get involved in this important process is respond to our survey. It will allow you to provide input so we can develop a high-quality arts education framework.
