Effortlessly Communicate Your Curriculum With These Student Handouts

Hey, AOE Readers! We know that communicating your curriculum to others can be tricky. It can be almost impossible to get coworkers and administrators to actually understand the important skills and concepts that we teach on a daily basis. Not to mention communicating all of this to the students! Helping students verbalize what they’re learning in art can be a powerful advocacy tool and help them feel more connected to class.

Luckily, we’ve created a set of handy resources to help you out! The “What Will I Learn” student handouts below lay out everything students are expected to learn throughout elementary school. Download and use them all or tweak them to fit your classes!

And, if you’re looking for even more curriculum resources, check out this reading list!
