At the heart of education are two fundamental questions: “What should we teach?” and “How should we teach it?” Educators striving to design and deliver the best possible learning experiences can feel overwhelmed by the possibilities. To help them make these critical decisions, Angela Di Michele Lalor identifies five key priorities of a curriculum that matters—practices, deep thinking, social and emotional learning, civic engagement, and equity.
This interactive webinar provides strategies on how to incorporate each element into the curriculum as well as strategies educators can use NOW for addressing these elements in their classrooms.
Emphasizing the importance of schools determining their own path forward, Lalor provides a framework for action.
Along with the book, participants will also receive the Making Curriculum Matter Toolkit. It provides guiding questions and activities educators can use to unpack their vision and mission, review their current curriculum and instructional practices, and create an action plan for developing their version of the Curriculum that Matters Framework.
With insightful observations, research-based background information, and real-world examples from a variety of schools and districts, Making Curriculum Matter presents educators with a path for reaching their most important overall goal: to provide comprehensive, meaningful learning to all students.
