Steps for mapping

Steps for mapping...

1. Collect data (record what was actually taught) using a

calendar-based format:

  • Content

  • Skills

  • Activities

  • Assessments

2. Review data

  • An individual teacher

  • A group of teachers of the same grade level or the same course

  • A group of teachers from varied grade levels or varied courses within a department

Remember

Remember...

Your curriculum map reflects

what actually occurs in your classroom

  • Reality is “messy”

  • May not be a “pretty” document

  • That’s ok!


Some guidelines

Some Guidelines...

  • Include enough specifics to make the map useful (so it “tells” you something upon reflection)

  • Use specific vocabulary vs. vague/generic terms


Some guidelines1

Some Guidelines...

  • Don’t write too much!

  • No need to write out objectives or complete activities

2. Review data

This analytic tool can be used by:

  • An individual teacher

  • A group of teachers of the same grade level or the same course

  • A group of teachers from varied grade levels or varied courses within a department


As an individual teacher

As an individual teacher...

  • Can review timing, sequence, level of instruction

  • Serves as documentation of successful instructional activities

  • Assists in monitoring types of instructional methods used (ex., cooperative learning, direct instruction, etc.)


As a group of teachers of the same grade level or course

As a group of teachers of the same grade level or course...

  • Can share activities and assessments (both successful and unsuccessful)

  • Collaboration enhances “team” feeling

  • Can serve as a guide for new teachers


As a group of teachers of varied grade levels or varied courses within a department

As a group of teachers of varied grade levels or varied courses within a department...

  • Can examine for “gaps” in the curriculum

  • Can note “repetitions” in the curriculum

  • Provides opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across grade levels and courses

Social Studies

Realized while mapping that having to write down what she was teaching helped to keep her on track.

Concluded that mapping was an easy way to ensure she stayed focused and followed her pacing guide.


Curriculum mapping auditing the taught curriculum to improve student achievement

English

Noticed that different teachers were using different novels to teach concepts, and pacing varied greatly.

Identified which novels and pacing formats seemed to be most successful. Shared successful learning activities.


Curriculum mapping auditing the taught curriculum to improve student achievement

Science

Noticed that test scores were weak in the area of scientific investigation. Realized the process was not being taught consistently across grade levels.

Defined how process would be taught across grades. Agreed to use consistent vocabulary/ terminology.
