Curriculum Map Review


Why create curriculum maps

Why Create Curriculum Maps?

  • Locate gaps, repetitions, areas for integration, assessments

  • Authentic alignment to standards

  • Accountability

  • Communication and Reflection

    • We rarely have these conversations!

      • *Identify what occurs throughout the entire school year

      • *Create a picture of students’ experiences from grade to grade

      • *Articulates teacher expectations to parents and students


How can curriculum mapping guide meaningful assessments

How Can Curriculum Mapping Guide Meaningful Assessments?

  • Clearly connects assessments/content/skills

  • Balances assessments

  • Prepares for high-stakes assessments

    • Not teach to the test

    • Teach to the standards assessed on the test

  • Does my curriculum reflect what is being tested?

  • Is my vocabulary consistent with the test?

    Analyzing curriculum maps can help you find answers and build a more meaningful and connected curriculum

  • Use the self analysis tool for your group

  • Read through your maps -

    • Core teachers - focus on the specific indicators: R.3 & G.1

    • Frequency

    • Blooms level

    • Assessment practices

    • Other

  • Make your own observations & note strategies


Then group analysis

Then:Group Analysis
