What is the sequence teachers may use to plan curriculum?

Yearly, Unit, Weekly, Daily


Define Backwards Design.

This type of curriculum focuses first on desired outcomes and results. What do we want students to know and be able to do? The next step is to design the summative assessment. Only then does the teacher design the lessons to match the assessment.


What are integration models and their purpose?

Single-Subject Integration: (One teacher, one subject, one topic) A single subject requires students to solve real problems.
Coordinated Model: (Two teachers, two subjects, one topic) Two or more teachers cooperate in teaching integrated single subjects.
Integrated Core Model: (One teacher, two subjects, one topic) A single teacher remains with students for two or three periods. A teacher might teach science as a core in the context of math or social studies.
Integrated Double Core Model: (Two teachers, four subjects, one topic) Two teachers integrate ‘cores’ to the students. On might teach math in the context of science, while the other teaches language arts within the context of social studies.
Self-Contained Core Model: (One teacher, multiple subjects, one topic) A teacher, with multiple credentials, instructs one group of students all day within a single context.


Levels of Curriculum planning
