               PLANNED COURSE CURRICULUM GUIDE
I.    COURSE DESCRIPTION AND INTENT:
      The increasing role of technology in society makes the Computer
      Literacy course a necessary segment of the curriculum. This course is
      designed to familiarize students with computer functions, capabilities,
      and role in society. Through a hands-on approach, students will work
      with Windows and the MS Office suite to complete assignments. An
      emphasis is placed on developing skills to enable the student to become
      an independent learner and computer user.

      NOTE: A passing grade is required for graduation.

                                                    PLANNED COURSE ADAPTATIONS/MODIFICATIONS

                                                                                   Introduction
         The instructional adaptations that follow are provided as suggestions to be implemented with all students, particularly with those in need of special education services
including the gifted. This listing is in no way intended to be exhaustive. Rather, it is reflective of some major considerations in the area of curriculum adaptations/modifications.

         These instructional adaptations will work with any student, but are especially beneficial to those in need of learning support. Some may argue that these modifications are
simply good teaching. Indeed, modifications of this type do represent good teaching. These principles of good teaching become instructional modifications whenever: (1) certain
students in a particular class require such modifications above and beyond what is typically required by most students in that class and (2) without these modifications, these same
students would not succeed.

         Assessment is an integral part of instruction reflecting student progress as well as achievement. Therefore, also included are suggestions for assessment modifications.

      Users and information seekers should familiarize themselves with the purpose and terminology of this Planned Course
Curriculum Guide (PCCG). We suggest that you first read the following:


                                               • PCCG PURPOSE AND INTENT
                                               • PCCG DEFINITIONS


        The PCCG specifies the unit lesson outcome, essential content, standards, activities, resources, and evaluation of student performance.
This sector provides the means to initiate the learning activities to attain the program goal as identified in the course description and intent.

       The standards and outcomes are minimal expectations; further embellishment of the course is discretionary with the instructor
depending upon the capability of the students.

       This PCCG is designed as an ACTIVE document capable of technological modification as required.

       The instructional delivery of this curriculum is quality controlled through the lesson plan development of the teacher.
                                                                            5

                                            PURPOSE AND INTENT


                          The Planned Course Curriculum Guide (PCCG) is a multi-purpose document:
• All staff, particularly new teachers, can understand instructional expectations through the WRITTEN curriculum

• A continuing district-wide instructional process and scope and sequence of subject matter are enhanced. The WRITTEN curriculum is delivered
  through the TAUGHT curriculum [instructional content and learning activities] and is evaluated through the TESTED curriculum [expected levels
  of student achievement - learning outcomes]

• Priority student-centered outcomes are identified and attained through suggested learning activities and content designed to help insure a balanced
  and comprehensive basic curriculum

• Essential content and course standards provide an efficient basis for selecting appropriate instructional materials and resources

• Staff development areas for curriculum improvement are provided

• The PCCG conforms with current Pennsylvania Department of Education curriculum regulations and serves the dual feature of providing both an
  administrative document and an instructional guide

• Content and subject format remain flexible and adaptable to modification - an “active” document

• Special Pennsylvania Department of Education [PDE] legislation is identified

• Parents and students are provided with an overview of the instructional program and each course in particular
                                                                         5
