Moving Curriculum Forward

We encourage you to join us as we journey through the development of quality curriculum for content areas. This training will focus on the essential elements of quality curriculum. If your district is starting the curriculum writing or revision process, we will provide sessions to address where to start and how to build your curriculum in a logical order. If your district has a great start but needs more direction or time to work together, we will provide specifics in assessment development, instructional activities, and program alignment. Sessions will be focused to the needs of your team. This will be your opportunity to visit with colleagues across the state as you plan and build your curriculum.  Gather a team and register now!
