What is Curriculum Developer™ (CD)?
The Results-Based Education Model (R-BEM) Curriculum Developer™ is a powerful system for developing a district curriculum. Curriculum Developer™ (CD) serves as a reference site and management tool for teachers, parents, and administrator regarding what will be taught and assessed and in what time frame. CD is web-based and purposely aligned with Common Core State Standards (CCSS). It is based on the notion that curriculum is a seamless web: teaching/learning/assessment.
Why is Curriculum Developer™ Better?
This easy-to-access program is fully customizable and promotes on-going refinement and alignment of a district first-curriculum. The proven organizational structure within the product is key to fast implementation and ease-of-use.
The internal “mapping” component gives users a year at a glance overview of any course and/or subject. Unit descriptions, including learned skills and knowledge, are articulated in these maps. Estimated unit delivery timeframes and identification of imbedded assessments are also parts of this process.
The second part of this process involves unit planning and curriculum framework development. The instructional units are based on objectives/results and are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The student learning sequence drives each of the unit results. The framework is the key sub-set of the unit(s) and these items are bolded for easy identification within CD.
Once these curricular frames are developed and sequenced, a timeline for unit delivery is established. The activities are motivated by the objectives, and the prior learning (connections) and content determine the duration of each unit. Key vocabulary, resources, and materials are identified along with process, procedures and attachments. In-process formative assessments check and confirm understandings and a summative assessment assures successful attainment of the goals and objectives. Motivation, engagement, and volition are important elements of the unit delivery process and are described here.
