Keys to Curriculum Mapping

Keys to Curriculum Mapping
Strategies and Tools to Make It Work

Edited by:

Foreword by Heidi Hayes Jacobs

March 2005 | 120 pages | Corwin
Build bridges to a brighter future when you plan with curriculum mapping!

What role does curriculum mapping play in addressing all content standards? How does it promote staff development? How can educators use curriculum mapping to match teaching with assessment? Proper preparation for the curriculum mapping process insures success and eventual expertise in this highly rewarding process. This practical resource provides the tools necessary for successful implementation and exciting results.

Keys to Curriculum Mapping is packed with templates, flowcharts, tips, and troubleshooting techniques for curriculum mapping. Drawing on her own experience as well as her collaboration with curriculum mapping expert Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Udelhofen includes processes for:

  • Finding time for curriculum mapping
  • Sharing information with colleagues within the curriculum mapping framework
  • Adapting curriculum mapping to support other school-based programs
  • Utilizing curriculum mapping to implement No Child Left Behind initiatives

Curriculum mapping provides more than a map of curriculum units, assessment formats and scheduling; it allows educators to build relationships, improve schools, and meet assessment goals.
