Transforming Curriculum and Assessment

Go to:

Skim through the section on Core Competencies. If you have time, go also to the Curriculum Drafts and pick out a subject/grade and read the associated page. As you read the text, consider:

1) How, if at all, is the notion of “core knowledge” (a la Hirsh et al.) appearing in the curriculum?

2) What is your understanding of “curricular competencies”? How do curricular competencies compare with “concept and content learning standards”? (hint: you may wish to see the “Glossary of Curriculum Terms”)

3) To what extent does the text resonate (or not) with your own approaches to teaching?
