I have taught this 10th-grade, year-long Graphic Design course four times, making changes to the curriculum each time I taught the course. This version of the curriculum map reflects how I most recently taught the class. If I were to teach it again, I would certainly make additional changes. But I feel that the curriculum is at the stage where I can share with other art teachers. Feel free to use any of the ideas here for your classes.
