Curriculum Leader's Handbook.
Focusing on the school district's written expectations for students, this document examines curriculum improvement in four sections, each accompanied by a list of related references. The first section explores the organizational and substantive planning needed to structure any curriculum improvement project effectively and includes information on organizing groups, establishing an improvement cycle, determining the purpose of the curriculum and nature of the goals to be included, and deciding the portion of the teacher's overall curriculum to be represented. Second, the development phase is discussed in terms of curriculum preparation, textbook selection, and the development of assessment and information management procedures that support the curriculum. Third, plans and procedures teachers develop to set curriculum in motion in the classroom are discussed along with staff development, staff support, and the clarification of roles, tasks, and timelines. Last, the implementation-oriented and outcome-oriented evaluation of improvement efforts is described. A workshop supplement and a form showing the instructional attention to be given essential learning skills in different subject areas are appended. (CLA)
