What is aDistrict Essential Curriculum Map?

A tool that addresses Performance Standards, Essential Questions/Big Ideas, Content, Skills, and Assessments

What is the purpose of theDistrict Essential Curriculum Maps?“DECMs”
  • To align with Public Education Department High School Redesign (SB561)
  • To align with APS Redesign K-12 initiatives
  • To align APS assessments and instruction to NM Standards
decm goals
DECM Goals

  • Every curriculum map will be articulated horizontally and vertically
  • Educators will have online access to District Essential Curriculum Maps through the Albuquerque Instructional Management System (AIMS)

performance standards
Performance Standards

A performance standard identifies what students need to know and be able to do at a specific grade level.

linking performance standards to assessments
Linking Performance Standards to Assessments
  • Performance Standards are aligned to district benchmark assessments
  • High School Short Cycle Assessment is aligned to the scope and sequence of the Algebra I curricular framework

The High School Short Cycle Assessment is given for:

        • Algebra I, Geometry, & Algebra II
        • grades 8-12
        • Fall, Winter, Spring administration
essential questions
Essential Questions

Lead students to Big Ideas based upon the Performance Standards

  • Encourage higher-level thinking
  • Ask “Why” and “How” rather than “What”
  • Organize key concepts
  • Written in student-friendly language

EXAMPLES

In what ways can the graph of a quadratic equation

help us answer questions about the height of an object?

Why look for patterns?

How can data be represented, organized, or interpreted?

essential questions14
Essential Questions

The “mental Velcro” that help ideas stick in students’ minds for a long time to come!
