Welcome and Introduction
3
Agenda
  • Curriculum Mapping
  • What, Why, and How
  • Mapping at a Class Level
  • Mapping at a Grade Level
  • Mapping at a School Level
  • Wrap-up

4
K-W-L
  • What do you know about curriculum mapping?
  • What do you want to know about curriculum
    mapping?
  • What have you learned about curriculum mapping?

5
What Is Curriculum Mapping?
  • Curriculum mapping is a procedure for collecting
    data about the actual curriculum in as school
    district using the school calendar as an
    organizer.

6
We Need Two Lenses
Why Do Curriculum Mapping?
  • A zoom lens into this years curriculum for a
    particular grade.

7
We Need Two Lenses
  • A wide angle lens to see K-6 perspective.

8
Why Do Curriculum Mapping?
  • Do you know what your colleagues of the same
    grade are teaching?
  • Is it possible that some important skills you
    assume someone will teach has never been taught?
  • Is the content you are teaching repeated by other
    teachers?

Curriculum mapping can be the answers to the
questions.
9
Why Do Curriculum Mapping?
  • Gain information
  • Identify gaps
  • Identify repetitions
  • Identify potential areas for integration
  • Match assessment with desired outcomes
  • Review for timeliness

10
Learn and Critique
  • What information is included on the maps?
  • What is possible with the information on the
    maps?
  • What would you be able to do if you had this
    information?

Form small groups, choose a facilitator and a
recorder.
11
Phases of Curriculum Mapping
How?
  • Collecting the Data
  • The First Read-through
  • Mixed-group Review
  • Large Group Review
  • Determine Points That Can Be Revised Immediately
  • Determine Points That Require Long-term Research
  • Review Cycle Continues

12
Phase I Collecting the Data
  • Each teacher records three major elements on a
    calendar-based curriculum map content, processes
    and skills, and assessments.

13
Phase II The First Read-through
  • Teachers will do the following
  • Read each others maps to gain information
  • Look for gaps,
  • Look for repetitions,
  • Identify potential areas for integration,
  • Match assessment with standards,
  • Review for timeliness.

14
Phase III Mixed-group Review
  • A small group of people from different grade
    levels shares and lists findings from the first
    read-through.

15
Phase IV Large Group Review
  • All faculty members meet to share findings.

16
Phase V Determine Points That Can Be Revised
Immediately
  • Faculty members address changes that can be made
    without further study.

17
Phase VI Determine Points That Require Long-term
Research
  • A task force is formed to do research and make
    recommendations.

18
Phase VII Review Cycle Continues
  • Review and revision continue
  • to keep maps timely.

19
Video Viewing Activities
  • What is curriculum mapping?
  • What is included in curriculum mapping?
  • How does mapping improve student performance?

20
K-W-L Revisited
  • What have you learned about curriculum mapping?

21
Curriculum Mapping Charting the Course for
Science
  • Each teacher records major elements on a
    calendar-based science curriculum map content
    and process skills.
  • Teachers from the same grade read each others
    maps to complete a grade level map for science.
  • Representatives from different grade levels chart
    the course for science for their respective
    schools.

22
Elements on a Map
  • Content Unit, concept, theme
  • Process skills Specific, assessable, and
    expressed with verbs
  • Assessment demonstrations of learning, tangible
    products or observable performances, and
    expressed with nouns
