Transcript of Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum mapping is a process for collecting and recording curriculum-related data that identifies core skills and content taught, processes employed, and assessments used for each subject area and grade level. The completed curriculum map then becomes a tool that helps teachers keep track of what has been taught and plan what will be taught.
Curriculum Mapping
For Teachers
Resolves questions relate to what needs to be taught
Demystifies the curriculum between grade levels and across disciplines
Eliminates gaps, overlaps, and repetition
Clarifies possibilities for integration
Ensures CCCS are properly sequenced and covered
Maps come in all
Shapes and Sizes
Now, it's your turn!
Maps can also help
Maps are meant to help
Guard Against

That's The Way
We've Always Done It
With a clear map,
we can assess the progress
of our students across and
between grades

Old Model...
New Model...
Learning anywhere, anytime, anyhow
teacher directed
on cooperation,
collaboration, etc.
Learning under one roof
sometimes the learner
Recaller of knowledge

Process and use information
from one basic source
Manipulator of knowledge

Process, analyze,
manipulate and
present information
from multiple sources
Paradigm Shift

Eat all your food
there are starving children
in China and India

Get good grades
because there are well-educated kids
in other countries waiting to take your job
A curriculum map
a lesson plan or directions on how to teach
For Students
Eliminates gaps, overlaps, and repetition
Improves alignment
Increases student achievement
Increases potential for integration and presentation of curriculum in more relevant and real-world ways
Ensures CCCS are properly sequenced and covered
7 Uses for the Word Curriculum:

1. Curriculum as in State Standards
2. Curriculum as in K-12 Articulation
3. Curriculum as in grade level learning expectations
4. Curriculum as in classroom methods – pedagogical approaches (cooperative learning, project-based learning, direct instruction, etc.)
5. Curriculum as in commercial programs (published packages that include materials, and approach to instruction, assessments, and teacher training)
6. Curriculum as in teaching units
7. Curriculum as in classroom materials
In schools that have clear end-of-year outcomes, a curriculum calendar, and increasing number of backwards-designed units, and a sharp focus on how all this comes together in each individual lesson, teachers are constantly thinking about the most important questions: alignment with standards, the knowledge, skills, and understandings students must acquire, potential misunderstandings, and how learning will be assessed.
Effective teaching requires teachers to assess what students are taking away from instruction to meet the differing needs of students.
Consider interim assessments every 4 to 9 weeks to check for understanding. Build in time to re-teach. Don’t get caught in saying, “I taught, therefore they learned.” You need to relentlessly follow up. Implement action plans for re-teaching (teaching things differently the second time around, not just louder and slower), follow up to see if students improve, and reflect on the data.
