Mapping the Big Picture
  • Escambia High School
  • Escambia County School District
  • August 10, 2007

2
Major Concerns for Teachers
  • FCAT preparation
  • FCIM
  • Documentation
  • Learning Gains

3
Bridge to Success
4
Curriculum Mapping
5
What is possible with the information on the maps?
6
What would you be able to do if you had this
information?
7
What would you be able to do if you had this
information?
  • Identify benchmarks that were taught
  • Adjust teaching of benchmarks
  • Identify weak areas
  • Identify missing/overlooked benchmarks
  • Adjust master schedule for next year
  • Adjust FCIM focus

You cant build a reputation on what you're going
to do. Henry Ford

Lesson Plans vs. Curriculum Maps
11
How would your school be different if you had
this information available now?
12
What Is A Curriculum Map?
  • A curriculum map is a calendar-based record of
    what really happens in a classroom it is not a
    curriculum guide or educational philosophy
  • Maps are used for communication, short and
    long-term planning, and as a teacher training tool

13
TIME
  • If you dont have time
  • To do it right
  • When do you have time
  • To do it over?
  • Roger Taylor, 1996

14
Life is ten percent what happens to you and
ninety percent how you respond to it. Lou Holtz

How Do You Map Curriculum?

20
What Information Do We Collect On The Map?
  • CONTENT
  • ASSESSMENT
  • SKILLS
  • Essential Questions

21
Escambia County School District Website
www.escambia.k12.fl.us
  • Log on to the district website
  • Select the icon for Departments and Resources,
    which is located on the left side of the home
    page
  • Select Staff Development
  • Select Download Forms
  • Scroll through the forms listed, and select
    Curriculum Mapping Templates.

22
Performance Pathways
23
Mapping The Content
  • What are you teaching each month?
  • List the content, using nouns a topic, a theme,
    a problem, an issue or works.

24
Important Points
  • Enter only what you have taught.
  • Honesty is important.
  • Enter your data alone.

25
Mapping Skills
  • List after content.
  • Use action verbs.
  • Focus on student skills not teacher activities.

26
Skills vs. Activities
  • Calculate the area, volume and mass of an object.
  • Determine the cause of the Protestant Reformation.
  • Answer the questions at the end of the chapter.
  • Do the even problems in the addition of
    fractions.

27
Use Blooms Taxonomy
  • Use the verbs of Blooms to describe student
    skills.
  • Match level of skills to FCAT items.
  • Work from lower level skills to higher order
    thinking skills.

28
Skills Are Displayed On The Map
  • Precise skills can be
  • Assessed
  • Observed
  • Described in specific terms

29
Mapping Assessments
  • What will the student perform or produce?
  • Project Chapter test Performance Test
  • Connect assessments with skills
  • Use nouns or noun phrases

30
Assessment
  • Assessment demonstrates learning.
  • Assessment gives evidence of skill and process
    development.
  • Do you assess at the consumer level or the
    producer level?

31
Consumer vs Producer Levels
  • Consumer Level
  • Interview for info
  • Read for info
  • Make note cards
  • Label a map.
  • Producer Level
  • Analyze validity
  • Determine causes
  • Critique a work
  • Write a position
  • Discuss an issue.

32
Assessment Examples
  • Journal Entry A Day in the Life of a Homeless
    Person
  • Quiz on the various forms of art
  • Quizzes
  • Revisions
  • Lab assignments
  • Journals
  • Worksheets
  • Oral presentations
  • Chapter tests
  • Literature discussions
  • Demonstrations

33
Assessments Are The Major Products And
Performances
  • Assessment is observable evidence of
  • 1)Tangible Products
  • 2)Observable Performances

34
Critique Your Assessments
  • Have you assessed at the consumer or producer
    level?
  • Have you used age-appropriate assessments?
  • Wheres the rigor?

35
Essential Questions
36
Essential Questions balance
37
An Essential Question Is The Heart Of The
Curriculum
  • If your class is about to start a study of the
    U.S. Constitution for four weeks, as the
    curriculum writer you need to ask. What are the
    concepts that my students should investigate
    about the constitution in four weeks? What should
    they remember and reflect on a year from now?

38
Essential Questions
  • What do you want students to remember a year
    from now?

39
Essential Questions
  • What questions will open the door to
    understanding and facilitate the understanding
    to stick?

40
My Essential Questions are
  • What is an Essential Question?
  • How do you write Essential Questions?
  • What is your schools plan for Curriculum Mapping?

41
Essential questions are productive for children
  • When a teacher or group of teachers selects a
    question to frame and guide a curricula design,
    it is a declaration of intent. This is our focus
    for learning.
  • Essential questions are an exceptional tool for
    clearly and precisely communicating the pivotal
    points of the curriculum
  • They act as mental velcro

42
What you design is what you get!
  • You are probing with your students
  • Traditional Question What are the three branches
    of government as organized in the constitution?
  • Essential Question How is the constitution the
    backbone structure of America?

43
When Designing The Curriculum
THINK
T H I N K
  • What is the purpose of the unit?
  • Given the amount of time we have to work on a
    topic What is essential for us to examine,
    explore, learn?
  • If you use essential questions the retention rate
    for kids doubles. Kids read words unless they
    know the essence of what they are looking for.
  • What you design is what you get?

44
What you design is what you get!
  • EQs spark new questions.
  • EQs should recur throughout the course.
  • EQs are interesting and provide an avenue for
    alternative views.

45
What you design is what you get!
  • Behind any EQ a student needs to provide
    justification. The best EQs are arguable.
  • EQs transfer an idea from one setting to other
    settings.

46
Example In Practice
  • An assignment could be
  • As you read Chapter 2, determine what you think
    were the major contributions of Egyptians?

47
Essential Questions as an Organizer
48
About Essential Questions
  • A teacher structures a unit around 2-5 essential
    questions.
  • The questions are the scope and sequence of the
    unit.
  • They go to the heart of the subjects history,
    arguments, and insights.
  • They must engage and interest the learner.

49
Examples of Essential Questions
  • How and why do things in nature fly?
  • How does flight impact humans?
  • What is snow?
  • How does snow affect people?
  • How will I ever learn to multiply?
  • Where will I ever use multiplication?

50
Essential Questions
  • What is the difference between a scientific fact,
    a scientific theory, and a strong opinion?
  • What should we eat and why should we eat it?
  • To what extent is DNA destiny?

51
Essential Questions
  • How do we hit with greatest power without losing
    control?
  • How important is follow-through for distance and
    speed?

    happen next? How sure are you?

55
Mathematics
  • Whats new and whats old? Have we run across
    this idea before?

    solving the given system? Justify your decision.

57
For Example . . .
  • Everyday Physics Transportation Safety
  • How can cars, boats, and airplanes become safer
    for passengers?
  • How can principles of force and motion help
    driver effectiveness and safety?
  • Are safety and speed compatible?

58
For Example . . .
  • Intelligence
  • What is intelligence?
  • How has intelligence evolved?
  • How is intelligence measured?
  • Is intelligence solely a human phenomenon?
  • How will intelligence be altered?
