The Arts and the Common Core: A Review of Connections Between the CCSS and the National Core Arts Standards Conceptual Framework
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) is currently spearheading the revision of the national standards for arts education for the first time since their creation in 1994, and this presents a significant opportunity to highlight the overlap between the Common Core’s objectives and the practices of arts-based learning. Given the central role that the Common Core standards are playing in education and school reform initiatives nationwide, it is a priority of the Coalition to ensure that the goals and objectives of the Core Arts Standards relate clearly, directly, and meaningfully to the Common Core, and that these connections are actively considered as a part of the standards writing process. In an effort to inform the work of the standards writers, College Board researchers undertook a study of the Common Core standards as they relate to arts-based learning.

Cardboard Automata

Cardboard Automata are a playful way to explore simple machine elements while creating a mechanical sculpture. This activity was inspired by the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, a group of automata builders based in England. Artists like Paul Spooner, Keith Newstead, and Carlos Zapata build beautiful narrative pieces using elegant mechanisms based on cams, gears, springs, and linkages. Working with simple materials, this activity is easy to get started, and may become as complex as your mechanical sculpture ideas.
