What is Curriculum Mapping?
  • Curriculum mapping is a process that helps
    teachers keep track of what has actually been
    taught throughout an entire year

11
Why Curriculum Mapping?
  • The map becomes a tool that is used to help
    modify and refine next years instruction

12
A Pacing Guide is an outline of the intended
curriculum
A Curriculum Map is an outline of
the implemented curriculum
13
Steps for mapping...
  • 1. Collect data (record what was actually
    taught) using a
  • calendar-based format
  • Content
  • Skills
  • Activities
  • Assessments

  • An individual teacher
  • A group of teachers of the same grade level or
    the same course
  • A group of teachers from varied grade levels or
    varied courses within a department

16
Steps for mapping...
  • 3. Identify changes that can be made to

Remember...
  • Your curriculum map reflects
  • what actually occurs in your classroom
  • Reality is messy
  • May not be a pretty document
  • Thats ok!

28
Some Guidelines...
  • Include enough specifics to make the map useful
    (so it tells you something upon reflection)
  • Use specific vocabulary vs. vague/generic terms

29
Some Guidelines...
  • Dont write too much!
  • No need to write out objectives or complete
    activities

Steps for mapping...
  • 2. Review data
  • This analytic tool can be used by
  • An individual teacher
  • A group of teachers of the same grade level or
    the same course
  • A group of teachers from varied grade levels or
    varied courses within a department

39
As an individual teacher...
  • Can review timing, sequence, level of instruction
  • Serves as documentation of successful
    instructional activities
  • Assists in monitoring types of instructional
    methods used (ex., cooperative learning, direct
    instruction, etc.)

40
As a group of teachers of the same grade level or
course...
  • Can share activities and assessments (both
    successful and unsuccessful)
  • Collaboration enhances team feeling
  • Can serve as a guide for new teachers

41
As a group of teachers of varied grade levels or
varied courses within a department...
  • Can examine for gaps in the curriculum
  • Can note repetitions in the curriculum
  • Provides opportunity to collaborate with
    colleagues across grade levels and courses

42
Steps for mapping...
  • 3. Identify changes that can be made to
  • curriculum alignment or curriculum
  • pacing guides to correct deficiencies

Social Studies
Realized while mapping that having to write down
what she was teaching helped to keep her on track.
Concluded that mapping was an easy way to ensure
she stayed focused and followed her pacing guide.
45
English
Noticed that different teachers were using
different novels to teach concepts, and pacing
varied greatly.
Identified which novels and pacing formats seemed
to be most successful. Shared successful
learning activities.
46
Science
Noticed that test scores were weak in the area of
scientific investigation. Realized the process
was not being taught consistently across grade
levels.
Defined how process would be taught across
grades. Agreed to use consistent vocabulary/
terminology.

    with the Standards of Learning
  • Develop a pacing guide to ensure that all tested
    topics are taught prior to the administration of
    the SOL test
  • Use curriculum mapping as a tool to monitor and
    fine tune your curriculum
