Sample Curriculum Maps for Arts Instruction The Office of Arts and Special Projects is pleased to offer teachers of the arts a series of sample of Curriculum Maps to support their planning for instruction. These Maps were developed by teams of veteran educators in Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts with a deep commitment to the integrity and talent of New York City arts teachers. Informed by their respective Blueprints in the Arts, each team developed dynamic introductory Curriculum Maps for four different grade levels: early elementary, upper elementary, middle, and high school. Each Map has several defined Units that consecutively span an entire school year. These Units provide a sample comprehensive series of teaching and learning experiences, and furthermore, each Map contains two fully developed lessons for teacher reference and use.
