Curriculum Planning

Curriculum planning is the process of logically sequencing subject matter so students can achieve the goals, standards and benchmarks they need to learn at each grade level.

A school curriculum is a general statement about the scope and sequence of learning at various grade levels. Grade-level curriculum is a more detailed description of what will be taught, when it will be taught and how it will be assessed. Lesson plans schedule the daily teaching, assessment, re-teaching and reinforcement of concepts in the classroom. Together, these tools provide a "map" showing how children will learn the core curriculum.
