  10. 10. What is a “curriculum map”? <ul><li>When schools complete curriculum maps for each course, they “horizontally” articulate the curriculum. Curriculum maps specify: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When the content will be addressed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How content standards will be addressed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>through in-depth projects </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>through “interludes” or “mini-projects” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Through conventional methods </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How interdisciplinary projects involve multiple content areas </li></ul></ul>

  12. 12. What is a “curriculum map”? <ul><ul><li>No “right” or “correct” format for a curriculum map. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teachers develop maps that meet their needs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maps vary by level of detail and format. </li></ul></ul>

Possible consequences of project planning without curriculum mapping as a first step <ul><li>Lengthy projects that loosely address content standards </li></ul><ul><li>Hard to quantify goals accomplished, achievement gained </li></ul><ul><li>Unnecessary overemphasis of standards = lost interconnections, lack of context </li></ul><ul><li>Under-emphasized key standards </li></ul>
  14. 14. Possible consequences of proceeding without a “road map”. <ul><li>Resources, tradition drive the project planning process. </li></ul><ul><li>In projects, lack of alignment between: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Culminating Products and Performances </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Formative and Summative Assessments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning Experiences </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. “ Curriculum Maps” versus “Pacing Guides” <ul><li>Pacing guides are resource-oriented. </li></ul><ul><li>We define a “pacing guide” as a document that typically includes the chapter of a text, the lesson, support materials used, and the date for completion. </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum maps are standards-oriented. “Curriculum maps” outline when standards will be addressed, project titles, key assessments and resources. </li></ul>
