Back to Ensuring High-Quality Curriculum: How to Design, Revise, or Adopt Curriculum Aligned to Student Success
Curriculum is the core of the classroom experience, but what makes a quality curriculum? What lessons, learning experiences, and assessments are most effective, and how should they be embedded within the curriculum? The answers to these and other questions appear in this definitive, step-by-step guide. Drawing from her work with teachers and administrators to facilitate curriculum development, author Lalor offers targeted advice and real-life examples from elementary and secondary units of study across a variety of content areas and standards, as well as field-tested rubrics, protocols, and other tools. The author provides criteria for evaluating each component of a curriculum and end-of-chapter checklists to ensure that the criteria are met. Relevant to anyone who is creating or revising curriculum, or evaluating options among published alternatives, Ensuring High-Quality Curriculum is a comprehensive and accessible roadmap to developing a solid foundation for teaching and learning—and better results in the classroom.
