Curriculum Design, Review and Evaluation

July 20 - 21, 2020

This training will be conducted virtual

Daily Schedule: 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m
Lunch: 11:30 - 12:30

Join your colleagues across the state as we discuss the components of strong curriculum design and how to evaluate its effectiveness and connection to quality instruction.  We will spend quality time on the new MSIP 6 Curriculum Standards and review what is required to meet these standards  This will be a very thorough process suitable for teacher, coach and administrator teams.  During our time together we will:

  • Discuss the contents of a quality curriculum and what constitutes strong curriculum design, review exemplars and set the parameters of a curriculum evaluation. We will examine an evaluation “vocabulary” and how to use it effectively.
  • Review the steps of curriculum review using sample rubrics and scoring guides to conduct the review. We will work through a process using your current curriculum.
  • We will review the new DESE Curriculum Standards and use the new Curriculum Review Tool to check MSIP 6 expectations.
  • Discuss the content areas and how to review content specific material. We will examine how clarity of curriculum affects quality instruction.
  • provide time to review the overall process and to begin your own review and evaluation.
