  4. What is Curriculum Alignment? • Curriculum alignment refers to the process of interpreting learning standards, then developing learning objectives that are directly targeted to the standards

  5. Curriculum Structures Curriculum Mapping Curriculum Alignment Curriculum Pacing

  6. Curriculum Structures Curriculum Mapping Curriculum Alignment Curriculum Pacing We are here

  7. A Curriculum Pacing Guide is a planning tool that helps teachers plan the pacing of their instruction so that all tested topics are taught prior to the administration of the SOL test

  10. What is Curriculum Mapping? • Curriculum mapping is a process that helps teachers keep track of what has actually been taught throughout an entire year

  11. Why Curriculum Mapping? • The map becomes a tool that is used to help modify and refine next year’s instruction

  12. A Pacing Guide is an outline of the intended curriculum A Curriculum Map is an outline of the implemented curriculum

  13. Steps for mapping... 1. Collect data (record what was actually taught) using a calendar-based format: • Content • Skills • Activities • Assessments

  14. Steps for mapping... 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

  15. Steps for mapping... 3. Identify changes that can be made to curriculum alignment or curriculum pacing guides to correct deficiencies

  17. Description: What? Collect data Analysis: So What? Review data Reflection: Now What? Identify possible changes

  18. Steps for mapping... 1. Collect data (record what was actually taught) using a calendar-based format: • Content • Skills • Activities • Assessments

  19. Remember... Your curriculum map reflects what actually occurs in your classroom • Reality is “messy” • May not be a “pretty” document • That’s ok!

  20. Some Guidelines... • Include enough specifics to make the map useful (so it “tells” you something upon reflection) • Use specific vocabulary vs. vague/generic terms

  21. Some Guidelines... • Don’t write too much! • No need to write out objectives or complete activities

  26. Steps for mapping... 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

  27. 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.)

  28. 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

  29. 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

  30. Steps for mapping... 3. Identify changes that can be made to curriculum alignment or curriculum pacing guides to correct deficiencies

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  35. A Review... • Make sure that your course curriculum is aligned with the Standards of Learning • Develop a pacing guide to ensure that all tested topics are taught prior to the administration of the SOL test • Use curriculum mapping as a tool to monitor and “fine tune” your curriculum

  36. How does our school get from here... to here? Standards of Learning --------> Student Achievement

  37. Instruction Important to know and do Curriculum Assessment
