  • Education is no longer business as usual . . .
  • In the 21st century, schools can't be throw
    backs to the state of education fifty, twenty,
    or even ten years ago. The instructional content
    they provide, the learning experiences they
    offer, the teaching methods they employ, and the
    assessments they use, must all keep pace with
    this century.
    Arne Duncan

Student Engagement

The first principle of instructional
improvement is that increases in student learning
occur only as a consequence of improvements in
the level of content, teachers knowledge and
skill, and student engagement. Richard
Elmore

    (formative, interim/benchmark, summative)
  • Allows for flexibility, innovation and
    experimentation
  • Promotes interdisciplinary and other
    instructional approaches that include the
    integration of 21st century skills and habits of
    mind, technology and global perspectives

11
Why is designing curriculum is not business as
usual in New Jersey and Across the Nation . . .

    Elementary and Secondary Education Act

  • Support a more complete education- do not
    narrow curriculum

The QUALITY AND INTENSITY OF THE HIGH
SCHOOL CURRICULUM is the single biggest
predictor of post secondary success. Many
students, but especially low income and minority
students, are trapped in courses that dont
prepare them for much of anything.
Key elements of effective schools are in our
control -A Guaranteed and viable
curriculum -How Faculty teach, get and use
feedback -How schooling is personalized -How
Assessments are designed and student work is
graded -The quality of feedback to students and
acting on results in a timely
manner - -Leadership based on mission -
