“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” –Anthony J. D’Angelo
The term curriculum refers to the academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Curriculum typically refers to the knowledge and skills students are expected to learn, which includes the learning standards or learning objectives they are expected to meet.
They meet these standards and/or objectives by materials from a combination of textbook series, projects, materials, manipulatives, videos, presentations, and readings used in a course; and assessments (paper and project-based); both formal and informal, summative and formative.
Don’t let a single textbook define your curriculum. Teach students to use a variety of materials (research-based instruction) in order to get a well-rounded learning experience. Learning shouldn’t be one-dimensional.
Use assessment to drive instruction in your classroom. Let test results help you help students better. That’s what test scores are for, not for penalizing or embarrassment.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies,
so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
1 Peter 4:10-11
