What new ideas have you gleaned from this class? Suggest a resource for all administrators to use for curriculum development. I have gained a plethora of knowledge regarding curriculum development thoughout the course of this class. The information and models in Wiggins and McTigh regarding UbD design is a wonderful way to implement the curriculum where students get the “big ideas” that you are teaching. I also really like the four circles model from Danielson in which places values on the goals set for curriculum development. I have also learned how to effectively implement a curriculum as well as assess the success of a curriculum. A school environment should be conducive to high level learning by enhancing student’s motivation promoting teamwork and collaboration.
