Just when the curriculum discussion is dying down, here I come to start up a sidebar.
First, do each of you highschool art teachers have a syllabus (for each class) that you've written or that has been handed to you from your state dept. of ed?
Second, (and what I'm really curious about) -- Have any of you prepared a course syllabus using a packaged program? It seems that we are soon to be handed such a program, into which we must format our present courses of study "so that all school syllabi will have the same format and be aligned with national and state standards." The only precise info I can cite is that the program is by EdVISION. The sample I've seen is formatted into columns with such mind-numbing headings as "The learner will", "Strand", "Source", "Bloom's", and "Resources."
If any one of you can say something encouraging about this software, I shall be most grateful to read it. At the moment, "consistency" is the only word I can come up with, and I'm not reacting with a smiley face. Thanks, J.
