Eight separate teams of art teachers, curriculum specialists, museum educators, and art discipline specialists worked together to create this stimulating collection of sample curricula. These distinctive approaches integrate art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics, the foundation of elements of discipline-based art education (DBAE). These curricula provide examples of DBAE in practice for teachers who want to create their own curricula tailored to the needs of their schools and multicultural classrooms.

Two units each are included for elementary, middle, and secondary levels; one selection covers a studio production unit in ceramics; and one unit provides an approach to studying a work of art in a museum setting.
