Prioritizing the Curriculum Process
Delaware educators worked with Learning Focused school consultants in 2009 to prioritize the Delaware Standards and GLEs. The Prioritizing the Curriculum Process enables Delaware educators to make decisions about how to focus instructional time regarding the standards and GLEs. The statewide Prioritizing the Curriculum materials were used to rank the GLEs as Essential, Important, and Compact.
Working Definitions of Essential, Important, and Compact
*Note: In the upper grades, COMPACT may refer to a review of content. In lower grades, COMPACT may refer to content that is new and is being introduced to students for the first time.
