SUSAN ,
I have taught for 7 years and have never seen this done. However when I went
to the Getty Homepage and down loaded what they had for the National
Standards on scope and sequence ( Can I say how thrilled I was to have this
at my fingertips!!) My administrator told me they wanted a more detailed
breakdown.
The National Standards were more criteria/concept oriented. What I find
incomprehensible-way beyond my right brain-is that they wanted me to detail ,
what I would catagorize as "methods". When do you introduce "scissors" and
when and how do they "master "scissors. When and how do you introduce "Line"
as an art Element, and when do they "master"line..........
Honestly -this is beyond me . And I'm lost as how to sequence-art history,
clay and glazes, watercolor painting, critique, etc.........could we go on
for pages and pages here?????..............
I'm responsible to rewrite curriculum, and do scope and sequence for
Kindergarten
through twelveth grade. I can't even figure out how to start.
I'm ready to look for another job. What anal person took a beautiful left
brained activity and made it into an obsessively endless writing activity????
Forgive me-if you've done this, but the complete half of my left brain went
to my
brother who is a nuclear physicist.
Can anyone help me??? If this were concepts ,it would be manageble.
Are there any examples out there?
Patti
