Curriculum and Materials

The term curriculum conveys many things to many people.  Perceptions of the term may vary since curriculum encompasses more than a simple definition.  Curriculum is a key element in the educational process; its scope is extremely broad, and it touches virtually everyone who is involved with teaching and learning.

Accordingly, an exemplary curriculum guide is a tool that assists in planning and implementing a high quality instructional program.  A comprehensive curriculum:


·         is a set of overarching goals that guide an entire program.

·         establishes sequences both within and between levels and assures a coherent and articulated progression from grade to grade.

·         outlines a basic framework for what to do, how to do it, when to do it, and how to determine  if it has been achieved.

·         allows for flexibility and encourages experimentation and innovation within an overall structure.

·         promotes interdisciplinary approaches and the integration of curricula when appropriate.

·         suggests methods of assessing the achievement of the program’s goals and objectives.
