Curriculum and Collection Mapping: Tools for Leadership and Connection

  1. 1. LIB 604 Libraries in the School Curriculum Spring 2013Curriculum and Collection Mapping Tools for Leadership and Connection
  2. 2. 2 What is Curriculum Mapping? What Is It? − Curriculum mapping is a process for collecting and recording curriculum-related data that identifies core skills and content taught, processes employed, and assessments used for each subject area and grade level. The completed curriculum map then becomes a tool that helps teachers keep track of what has been taught and plan what will be taught. −

  5. 5. 5 Foci of curriculum mapping Three C’s: − Communication -- 21st Century curriculum maps are most often developed and maintained using an Internet-based commercial mapping system. − Curricular Dialogue -- Teachers take part in collegial relationships wherein they make data-based decisions about grade-level, cross-grade level, disciplinary, and cross-disciplinary curricula and instructional practices. Teachers become Teacher Leaders. − Coherency -- A combination of 21st Century communication plus curricular dialogue eventually equals curricular coherency. •

  9. 9. 9 Contents of a curriculum map? Curriculum maps should include: − Content taught − Life and thinking skills taught − Assessment types, quality, and frequency − Learning concepts that can be integrated with other disciplines at your school − Gaps or unnecessary repetitions in your teaching − Strengths of your program − Essential units and the questions that need to be answered about each − Standards (local, state, or national) that are taught − Performance tasks − Sufficient artifacts for student and teacher portfolios • Adapted from Includes a sample map

  11. 11. 11 Arguments for curriculum mapping Decline of the print textbook − The recent challenge from President Obama encouraging schools to embrace digital learning points to the probable absence of a print textbook in the future. Teachers will need to build their math curriculum, science curriculum, language arts curriculum, and social studies curriculum using various resources including print, audio, video, and hands-on experiences. Building a curriculum map is, basically, the only way teachers will be able to bring together their instructional plan of what they teach, when they teach it, and how (resources) they teach. • Is Curriculum Mapping Still Relevant?

  16. 16. 16 Process of Collection Mapping1. Data collection − Count total number of materials in collection2. Compute number of items per student3. Compute the age of the collection − Can be done for each segment of the collection • e. g. according to subject area or Dewey class4. Divide the collection into manageable chunks and periodically compare segments to the curriculum  Harbour, D. (2002, March/April). Collection mapping.

  20. 20. 20Latest from Loertscher on mapping  David V. Loertscher and Laura H. Wimberley; Hi Willow Research and Publishing; 2010; ISBN: 978-1-933170-43- 5; $33.00  More than a decade ago, David Loertscher introduced the concept of collection mapping in two different books mostly to the audience of school librarians of the time. . . . For this new revision of the collection mapping idea, Laura Wimberley has added her expertise and together the authors have designed a book that would be useful to all types of libraries. http://www.lmcsource.com/Catalog/ collectiondevelo.html
