Common Core State Standards
Teachers usually need to connect curriculum to Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Nancy is researching how to make these connections with her recycled art in-class projects. She is also developing environmental education lesson plans to accompany her garments. Check back to this site for details. Meanwhile, here are some resources for art teachers about how the CCSS connect to the Next Generation Arts Standards:
