Note: this workshop is SOLD OUT
There has been a lot of discussion about high-quality curriculum materials lately. The research in support of verified, high-quality curricula is compelling, and demonstrates the importance of ensuring equitable access to materials that are adequately complex, usable, and standards-aligned for all students. So what makes a curriculum “high quality”? What are the tensions between strict fidelity to a curriculum, and “integrity” of implementation? What are the challenges to delivering a high-quality curriculum in a personalized classroom and what are the opportunities? Join us for an interactive exploration into top-rated open source curriculum units. Hear from educators who are navigating the intersection between high-quality curriculum materials and personalized learning; investigate the connection between curriculum and implementing high-leverage instructional practices; discuss critical features of curriculum flexibility; and participate in activities to adapt strong materials to better meet student needs and learning goals.
