Museum of the Arts Integrated Lesson Plan

Overview: Students use the poetry of Robert Frost to synthesize the decision making process and presenting those choices through the arts into a museum which they curate as a group.

Today’s Free Friday post is a new arts integrated lesson plan seed that connects Common Core Literacy standards with the new draft Visual Arts NCCAS for middle school students.  Through the new  National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCAAS), we wanted to show you an example of how beautifully these new potential standards can create a strong link to Common Core Standards without sacrificing the integrity of the Arts themselves.

In this lesson plan, students are using the poetry of Robert Frost to help them synthesize how choices are made and presenting those choices through the arts into a museum which they curate as a group.  We hope you enjoy this lesson seed and if you are looking for other examples, feel free to download one of over 30 other high-quality samples in our Lesson tab.  Happy Friday!
