Curriculum

The curriculum standards represent what children should be able to do-- the knowledge and skills required for students to achieve a standard. Teachers base instruction, lessons, activities and assessments on the curriculum standards. Involving students in their progress toward learning creates a road map for what students are working on and learning. Teachers create learning goals, create context for learning, design the learning, develop the materials and set the criteria. Involving parents and students in monitoring progress toward meeting goals increases goal accomplishment.
