  2. 2. Lesson 1<br />Curriculum Design Models<br />
  3. 3. Crafting a curriculum <br />is like writing a lesson plan. It is like making something with the different components, and putting them together in a very creative way. It is a task that all teachers should know and understand, or better still, to know how to craft one.<br />
  4. 4. Generally speaking, a curriculum can be organized either horizontally or vertically. Horizontally organization means, that the direction of the curriculum elements is sideways. For example, the subject social studies move horizontally along history, geography, civics and culture. Taking contents in mathematics and relating these to science is also an example of horizontal curriculum design. On the other hand, using a vertical arrangement or sequence of curricular elements follows a vertical design. For example in social studies content, putting the “family” ahead the topic “community” is vertical articulation or in science the bigger topic on “living things” comes ahead of topics on “plants” and “animals”.<br />
