Level 1 Curriculum Management Audit Training—Curriculum Assessment, Design, and Delivery is a three-day training program designed to prepare participants to examine and evaluate deep alignment issues to improve student achievement.
Through determining the scope of written curriculum and specification of curriculum guide components, participants learn to ensure curriculum articulation, develop a curriculum management plan, and design strategies for program cohesion. Participants will determine purposes, components, and scope of assessments in an effort to interpret and use test data appropriately and establish a design for program evaluation.
By distinguishing between equality and equity, participants learn to identify district equality issues and assess curriculum connectivity. To ensure appropriate quality of teaching and learning, participants learn to monitor curriculum and instruction delivery through the use of teacher of appraisals and walk-throughs and by specifying district expectations.
