In 2013, the Maine Arts Commission funded a six member team of teacher leaders representing Visual Art, Music and Theater, at elementary, middle and high school levels, who were be charged with two things: 1) Create two full standards-based units, including assessments, lesson plans and resources, and 2) Create templates that anyone could use to submit resources to the bank in the future or to develop arts curricula for classroom use. Mission accomplished! There are now 12 complete standards-based units serving two purposes: 1) to be shared and/or adapted by other teachers for their own classroom use, and 2) as exemplars of quality arts curriculum work. The templates for unit design, lesson plans and assessments are available on this link. This resource has been updated as of OCTOBER 2015 with new, added resources.
