Curriculum Innovation Coaching with Teachers and Instructional Designers

We work 1-on-1 or with small groups to reinforce the role of standards, intended outcomes and developing a year-long context for unit plans, with a focus on internal and horizontal alignment. We help designers understand the attributes of quality curriculum and develop units and programs of study that address organizational requirements and meet the needs of students.

Development can include: yearlong context maps, alignment to priority and supporting standards, enduring understandings, essential questions, content and skills, and/ or proficiency scales for prioritized standards. We also design units and assessments and conduct curriculum data analysis.

We help teams improve their databases by reviewing content for quality and continuity. We can also upgrade curriculum maps, standards, assessments and learning activities.
