Curriculum

Curriculum is an agreed upon set of knowledge, skills, and experiences that all students are expected to master (not just be exposed to) regardless of the teacher they have. As curriculum must be planned, it is necessary to specify in advance what we are seeking to achieve and how we plan to do it.  In this way, the curriculum provides an instructional map or guide that establishes standards, common content, and assessments. The development of the curriculum should be collaborative, visible, shared, accessible, and occur on a regular cycle.
