Curriculum Mapping Goal
Curriculum Goal:
By the end of 2009, K-12 staff will curriculum map
three or more content areas using TechPaths
software.
Purpose is to get the district organized to begin
or continue the curriculum mapping process.

Skills




Skills are written as Action Verbs (See handout)
Precise skills can be assessed, observed and described in
specific terms.
Identifies what you really want students to be able to do.
Skills are key abilities and processes students will develop
related to specific content.

This is often the most challenging aspect of mapping.

The skills are what the kids do to learn the content!

Examples of Precise Skills

finding main idea and supporting details

alphabetizing to the second letter

identify subjects and predicates

interpret data represented in a graph

identify root words, suffixes and prefixes

label the parts of a friendly letter

explain the difference between fact and opinion


compare and contrast the benefits, costs and limitations of
nuclear power
define the hypothesis and conclusion of an “if-then” statement
Skills VS Activity


Skill is what we want the students
to be able to do
Activity provides practice
concerning a skill
Standards


Aligned to the unit
Align the standards that you are
“assessing”.


Can you show if the student mastered the
standard with the skill/s you are teaching?
Not what standards you are “touching on”
Assessments
Include all forms of assessments


Crucial component of the maps
 Often the least developed, inclusive or
balanced
Include all classroom assessments


Summative (Of Assessments)
Formative (For Assessments)

Observable evidence that learning has occurred

Written as nouns
Summative and Formative Assessment
Assessment of Learning (Summative Assessment):
How much have students learned as of a
particular point in time?
Assessment for Learning (Formative Assessment):
How can we use assessments to help
