Arts Integrated ELA Lesson Seeds: Sample Curriculum Map

By |2018-01-17T10:15:46-07:00October 2nd, 2015|

Last spring, I shared a sample curriculum map integrating Common Core math standards and the arts. In the arts integrated classroom, careful planning to authentically align standards from Common Core and arts contents is key. Curriculum mapping is a wonderful tool to help make those connections. So today, I’d like to share a sample ELA arts integrated curriculum map that you might be able to use and/or adapt for your own classroom.

This map has been developed to align 3rd grade Common Core ELA standards to Core Arts standards in visual art, music, media arts, and drama. However, with a little creativity, I hope you can easily adapt these lesson seeds and assessments to suit the needs of your own classroom.
