Overview of Comprehensive Health Sample Curriculum
Transcript of Overview of Comprehensive Health Sample Curriculum
From its beginnings, the field of educators across the state has been the force behind this project. This will continue to be the case as the project and its outcomes are:
Driven by the field
Generated by the field
Relevant to the field Rationale/Origins Next Steps As the next step in standards support for the state, the project is oriented around three fundamental goals:
Facilitating successful implementation of the CAS
Helping build the capacity of Colorado educators to create curriculum materials based on the standards
Bringing together Colorado’s educators to create a variety of samples that reflect the diversity of our school districts
Sample Unit Overviews The samples:
Represent the translation of the CAS into unit overviews for all (10) content areas
Illuminate possibilities for sequencing grade-level expectations (GLEs) and content-specific standards across courses/years
Offer one possible foundation for exploring standards-based unit and lesson-plan development
The Curriculum Project & Samples For an overview of the project and samples please view Dr. Brian Sevier’s

High School Units Teachers have the flexibility to teach these units over the course of a semester or a full year.
