Rigorous Curriculum Design: What Instructional Leaders Need to Know

Ellen J. Stoltz, Ph.D.

Chief Academic Officer

August 20, 2014


Purpose:

Link Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) to the instructional core by defining observable elements of practice stemming from the curriculum

Process:

Mini-lesson, guided practice, small-group analysis and synthesis (DOK 4)

Pay-off:

Apply curricular expectations to identify our next level of work to benefit all students


First…From Instructional Rounds in Education (2009):“Don’t broaden the work with new initiatives, deepen the work with greater focus on building a strong culture of instructional practice.”Let’s begin the next level of work by… recognizing elements (DOK 1), identifying patterns (DOK 2), citing evidence (DOK 3), and applying concepts (DOK 4) to focus on our practice in ELA and Math.


Mini-Lesson: Identifying Elements of RCD

  • What elements do you expect to find as part of a Unit of Study?

Guided Practice: Questions to Consider

  • What examples can you describe that you have observed in your classrooms?

  • How would you compare what you find here to previous instruction in your classrooms?

3. How would you prioritize your focus as an instructional leader in your building?
