Common Core and the ARTS

College Board Releases Common Core Study

I have received emails in the recent months from visual and performing arts teachers who have said they have been asked to do work with the Common Core State Standards (CCCSS) for English/language Arts and math.

Most of you know that the National Core Arts Standards Conceptual Framework was released on January 14, 2013. The College Board has been part of the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards and has provided several research components that supports the work.

Late last week, Amy Charleroy of the College Board announced that the Common Core alignment study is complete.  The work, entitled A Review of Connections between The Common Core State Standards and The Next Generation Arts Standards  may be downloaded at http://nccas.wikispaces.com/Common+Core+Alignment.

Dr. Nancy Rubino, of the College Board, discusses Common Core connections in the Conceptual Framework roll out presentation, also housed on the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards wikispace. The presentation and PowerPoint may be found at:  http://nccas.wikispaces.com/Conceptual+Framework+Presentation+to+Field.

These studies can provide answers to your questions and valuable information that can help with the curriculum work you are doing at the local level.
