                 Goals for
             Curriculum Team
Data Retreat Goals:
** Implement MAPS assessment
** Continue to review tier 2 Writing Prompts

District Goals:
** 1. “We will reach and exceed proficiency levels for all
     students as measured by performance on state and local
     assessments by focusing on literacy across the curriculum.

Committee Goals when founded:
** Curriculum Guides / Maps
** Textbook Purchase Rotation
** Continual alignment to State Standards
** Assessment of student performance (all Tiers)
Today’s Focus:
Curriculum Map - content area
Some History…
2007: Technology standards were mapped to
       K-12 curriculum
2007: Essential Standards & Tier II
       Assessments
2005: Curriculum Mapping (some contents)
      http://www2.shelllake.k12.wi.us/District/district-documents/curriculum/index.html

1998: Math & LA standards aligned across
       curriculum (revised in 2004 & 2006)
Curriculum Mapping vs.
      Standards Alignment
 (TODAY’S TASK)
  Curriculum Map: An outline of all content (skills) taught
  to students, including resources used, assessments,
  and standards.


 (NOT TODAY’s TASK)
  Standards Alignment: aligning curriculum taught to
  meet the Wisconsin State Standards.

  Note: PART of today’s task may include listing
  standards met. However, today is not to look at all the
  standards to ensure your curriculum meets them.
Curriculum vs. Textbook
 Curriculum: Course of study; what is
  taught in the classroom; a plan of skills,
  lessons and objectives an educator
  executes.
 Textbook: A resource an educator uses to
  teach the curriculum.

A few statements of support…
“Just because it’s in your textbook, doesn’t mean you
    need to teach it.”
“If it isn’t in your textbook, but needs to be taught, it’s
    okay to teach it using a different resource.”
“Your textbook is not your curriculum.”
“Your curriculum is not your textbook.”
Rationale for today…
Documentation of Curriculum being taught.
  “The District’s road maps”

Step #1 of a Scope-n-Sequence vision
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Vision for future:
   Step #2: Gaps and overlaps leading to curriculum
             revision
   Step #3: Aligning revised curriculum to standards;
            completing entire map

         This is an on-going process. Always.
Today’s Action Plan
Create/Update a Curriculum map.
   K-6: Splitting between Math and Social Studies
   7-12: Content area; at least one (1) course
THREE areas of emphasis today:
   Skills
   Assessments
   Resources
   *Time Frame also
A FOURTH area request if time allows:
   Wisconsin Standards

Samples:
  5th Grade Math (White) : Year 1 sample
  Math 7 (Green): Year 1 sample
  8th Grade Reading (Pink): Completed Year 2-3 sample

Completed maps will be made available on school’s “For Staff”
  webpage once Principal-approved.
Q&A
Q: When does this need to be done?
A: Today.

Q: What if I have eight courses?
A: Your expectation for today is to choose at least
   one course.

Q: What if I finish my one course by 2:30?
A: We are professionals. Today’s time is to aid
   your coworkers and administration to paint “the
   big picture.” Start another course.

Q: When do all of my courses need to be
   completed?
A: No final date has been set in stone because this
   is an on-going process.
