The Blueprint for Teaching and
Learning in the Arts: PreK-12 provides a standards-based, rigorous
approach to teaching the arts.
We are proud to release the revised 2015 edition of the Blueprint for Teaching
and Learning in the Arts: PreK-12. This version includes documents to address arts instruction in PreK settings, for students with disabilities, and for English language learners. The Blueprint also provides guidance for aligning the arts and the Common Core as well as the “Specific Considerations in the Arts” for arts studio practice and observations. There are also revised bibliographies, website resources with active links and assessment guidance and other useful resources. We are confident that the Blueprint for Teaching
and Learning in the Arts: PreK-12 will remain an essential tool for New York City arts teachers.
