Curriculum is our backbone to quality teaching. Without a strong curriculum we are teaching without a clear direction or focus.
What is our version of curriculum? Where are we at on the line between "book curriculum" and "created curriculum?" Where should we be? Is there a distinction between our textbook and our curriculum? We have new books in Algebra 2 and are planning on it in grades 6-8. Are we doing it correctly? Are we using the books as a resource - or are they the curriculum?
Vertical and horizontal alignment...do we know what the our grades/courses are teaching?
