Quality Curriculum

Quality curriculum is responsive to student readiness, needs, and interest, while clearly reflecting the essential understandings, knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination.
It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now so that the steps you take are always in the right direction. Covey, S. R., (1989). The 7 habits of highly effective people. New York, New York: Fireside

  2. Using Essential questions as a path to understanding.
