Science Curriculum Mapping Workbook.
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Oak Brook, IL.
This workbook introduces curriculum mapping, a process used by schools and districts to reform and improve curricula. The school's or district's elementary and middle level science curriculum can be mapped out by indicating what topics are taught at what grade levels. This workbook is part of the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory's (NCREL's) ongoing effort to develop accessible and user-friendly, data-driven decision making tools. The workbook allows for the analysis and comparison of individual science curriculum to the United States as a whole and to top achieving nations around the globe. The curriculum is first mapped out on a tally sheet by indicating what topics are taught at which grades, then a plot is made of tally sheet totals on a variety of templates showing comparable data from the United States and top achieving nations.
