I am interested in the advantages of the CCSS. I think that actually they make the art teachers job easier in some ways. It would appear that you can pull more things (interdisciplinary) into your classroom and get credit for it. Sounds great. On the other hand the assessment part of it is a bit frightening. I wonder how assessment would even be done?
I found the three UDL Principles very interesting and productive. "Representation, action/expression and engagement". I thought that providing these multiple meanings helps students master the art of learning.
