authentic assessment, curriculum framework, creative arts, early childhood education, integration
Integrating creative arts in early childhood and assessing child development is not only good for children, it is mandated by policy in many countries. The United States congress passed Goals 2000: Educate America Act (P.L.103-227) which added creative arts to the educational landscape in 1994. When designing a creative arts curriculum framework, educators must determine how to measure children's learning and development. This article shares ways to integrate creative arts into a curricular framework, and use authentic assessment in the process.
