These instructional materials were created by a team of Arkansas classroom teachers and teaching artists through a partnership between the Arkansas Department of Education, the Arkansas Arts Council, and Arkansans for the Arts. Many thanks to the team: Marisa Arnold, Amy Bramlett, Emma Crystal, Missy Gipson, Tim Peerbolte, Jason Suel, and Jennifer Unger. The modules were inspired by the Model Cornerstone Assessments of the National Core Arts Standards.
