CMSi Curriculum Management Planning Workshop
The CMSi Curriculum Management Planning Workshop is a two-day training that focuses individuals on the key components of a quality written plan that outlines the priorities and procedures involved with managing written curriculum in the district to assure alignment and to support the most effective instruction in every classroom.
November 11-12, 2019
8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day
Built off the concepts and standards of the Curriculum Management Audit, the workshop reviews the 15 characteristics of a quality plan, and engages participants in reflection on the research concerning best practices, curriculum design, and effective instruction, particularly with underachieving or disadvantaged students.
Participants will also work in teams to develop their definition of critical components of the plan, such as the district's philosophy concerning teaching and learning, a definition of effective instruction, expectations for using data to plan instruction, a vision for what student-centered instruction really looks like, and an outline for the key steps in creating, delivering, and monitoring a quality written curriculum that supports these district values.
This workshop asks participants to complete selected readings prior to coming; these readings are made available electronically. Additional materials are provided at the training, as well as sample plans and a template for drafting a curriculum management plan.
Participants are expected to leave the training with a framework for a plan in place and at least four to five characteristics or components defined in draft form. This workshop is most appropriate for those personnel involved in leading curriculum development and at least one representative of those monitoring its delivery.
