College Board Releases Common Core/Arts Framework Alignment Study
Most of you know that the National Core Arts Standards Conceptual Framework was released on January 14, 2013. The College Board has been part of the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards and has provided several research components that support the work.
Late last week, the College Board announced that the Common Core alignment study is complete. The work, entitled A Review of Connections between The Common Core State Standards and The Next Generation Arts Standards may be downloaded at http://nccas.wikispaces.com/Common+Core+Alignment
Dr. Nancy Rubino, of the College Board, discusses Common Core connections in the Conceptual Framework roll out presentation, also housed on the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards wikispace. The presentation and PowerPoint may be found at: http://nccas.wikispaces.com/Conceptual+Framework+Presentation+to+Field
These studies can provide answers to your questions and valuable information that can help with the curriculum work you are doing at the local level.
