  1. 1. Camas Ridge Community School PBL Workshop June 23, 2009
  2. 2. &quot;A good school for anyone is a little like kindergarten and a little like a good post-graduate program .&quot; -Deborah Meier
  3. 4. Today <ul><li>Discuss/decide soft and hard structures </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum mapping </li></ul><ul><li>Imagine project possibilities </li></ul><ul><li>Project design template </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Practice agile thinking - honest! </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. How Do We Define Web 2.0? Some Commonly Shared Characteristics <ul><li>User-generated content </li></ul><ul><li>Web-based Applications </li></ul><ul><li>Sharable, collaborative, social </li></ul><ul><li>“ Creative Commons” spirit </li></ul><ul><li>Authentication, data stored in a “cloud” </li></ul><ul><li>Free, extra functions for money </li></ul><ul><li>Mash Ups and Interoperatability </li></ul><ul><li>Organizable through TAGS that make sense to you  “folksonomy” </li></ul>
  5. 6. 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>
  6. 7. 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>
  7. 8. 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>
  8. 9. 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>
  9. 10. 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>
  10. 11. “ 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>
