A well-developed, current curriculum provides many benefits for students and teachers. A curriculum that lays out course objectives and content sequencing allows the teacher to focus on designing specific lessons and assessments to teach individual students effectively. Additionally, curriculum planning helps a teacher ensure that standards are being addressed and met. This webinar will include presenters from elementary, middle, secondary, and higher education to provide a balanced review of this important activity.
