NCTM - National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

Curriculum Alignment

Alignment and coherence of these three elements:

curriculum, standards, and assessment—are critically important foundations of mathematics education.

  • National Governors Association– Common Curriculum and Rigor

  • Researched and evidenced-based

  • Internationally benchmarked

  • Aligned with college and work expectations

  • Rigorous content and skills

NSTA - National Science Teachers Association - Assessment

Instruction and assessment be aligned so that formative and summative assessments are meaningful and can be used to improve the science curriculum as well as determine what students have learned.

  • NASSP – National Association of Secondary School Principals - Achievement Gap and Rigor

  • Feb. 2009 – preparing all students for

  • postsecondary success

  • Close the Achievement Gap

  • Access to rigorous coursework

  • for all is a key feature of

  • Breakthrough schools

  • *Breaking ranks – promotes

  • open access to rigorous courses

  • for all students

NCSS – National Council for the Social Studies – UbD

Constant= Time/ support

Variable = Learning

If we make learning targets the variable then ….

1. … a student’s past academic

achievement is believed to

be constant.

2. … multiple levels should be

considered.

3. … a course level becomes the

intervention.


Glenbard district 87 where excellence is tradition

If we make time and support the variable, then ….

1. … all students are expected to meet

a highly rigorous academic level.

2. … a student’s past academic

achievement is used to determine

the support systems that are

needed to help them be successful.

3. … teachers and administrators work

together to continuously consider

and develop new ways to support

students.
