The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum says that many of their educational programs present design "as a verb", which I think is fabulous. This tough talk is backed up with an exciting line-up of educator programs, which include everything from lectures to lesson plans.

If you click on any of these links, you may expect to go down the visual art resource rabbit-hole.
OMG, the Online Lesson Library!
