Curriculum Mapping and Assessment Design

 

This Boot Camp begins with a focus on establishing a mission for curriculum mapping and a strategy for implementation within your school. We also guide participants through upgrading unit maps and the integration of assessment data into curriculum maps to improve student performance. Onsite coaching is customized to meet the needs of each school group in attendance.
 
Day 1 Curriculum Mapping Fundamentals

The first day provides a core understanding of mapping and the foundation for a robust and effective curriculum improvement initiative at your school.


Establishing Your Mission for Mapping | Whether your work is driven by a need to align to specific standards or to a particular pedagogy, we will help you develop a genuine purpose for your program that will directly impact curriculum and assessment decisions.  We will consider your student population, existing leadership structure and the opportunity to develop site based teaching and learning councils.

Procedures for Launching Curriculum Mapping |
You will receive guidance on how to get started with a curriculum mapping program at your school. We'll cover developing unit maps, constructing quality rubrics for assessment, and selecting and developing supporting technology. We will examine sample maps and case studies that demonstrate effective planning and communication within and between faculty, and discuss opportunities to improve learner performance through documentation.


Days 2 and 3 Professional Development Planning

Small group work and 1-on-1 coaching on days two and three allow participants the time and guidance needed to identify quality unit maps and assessments, and develop action plans that support school goals.

 

Integrating Assessment Data into Curriculum Maps | Together we will evaluate strategies for curriculum integration and devise a plan that meets your specific school assessment needs. We'll look at gap analysis and the collaborative inquiry process to examine student work. We will provide guidance around organizing and engaging staff in meaningful dialogue with the intended outcome of developing a consensus map that reflects your schools groups mission and required benchmarks.


Upgrading Maps for the Contemporary Learner | We will share tools, resources and strategies to review maps with the goal of deliberate ‘upgrading’. We will focus on the strategic replacement of dated content, skills, and assessments with current information. A specific focus will be on cultivating the new literacies - digital, media, global.

 

Onsite Coaching | Personalized strategy sessions support the development of an action plan for moving the work forward at your school.

 

By the end of this 3-day workshop, you will have both a professional development plan and a curriculum innovation program that reflects the modern classroom.
