Heidi Hayes Jacobs - Curriculum Mapping
Heidi Hayes Jacobs' Vision
*Teaching to the 21st century -

"I often wonder if many of our students feel like they are time traveling as they walk through the school door each morning. As they cross the threshold, do they feel as if they are entering a simulation of life in the 1980s? Then, at the end of the school day, do they feel that they have returned to the 21st century?" (Jacobs, 2012)

* Getting rid of the "binder on a shelf" curriculum

Student learning
Professional Development
Curriculum is a "living, breathing document"
always changing
