Curriculum Corner

Spring 2021 Edition

Continuing the Momentum

Three years ago, MCVSD laid the foundation for its Curriculum Academy, making curriculum design a priority. The goal? To create a comprehensive, content rich curriculum that was viable, that actually reflected what teachers were doing in their classrooms and that aligned to end of course assessments and industry credentials. It was our mission to help align teachers' short term plans with the district's long term goals, to create uniformity with lesson planning and expectations and to provide regular PD in the use of instructional practices and assessment literacy.

And, even amidst a pandemic, this year was composed of design workshops and work sessions during which our teachers continued to collaborate, learning, prioritizing, creating, getting feedback, and adjusting.

The curriculum training team continued to train cohorts of teachers; in fact, on May 12, 2021 the 12th cohort was trained at CLASS Academy. To date, close to 200 teachers have been trained on the UbD framework and the Rubicon/Atlas platform.

Look at how far we've come.
