Curriculum development is a year-long process that often follows AEC’s school district self-assessment process. All teachers in the target discipline(s) work together, K-12, to agree on overarching big ideas that guide the curriculum. Those big ideas then expand into grade level big ideas, knowledge, skills, assessment examples, lesson examples, and materials. AEC can tailor its curriculum work to fit into a district’s pre-existing format as needed.
The Grable Foundation has generously provided funds to offset the cost of the process for some school districts. For more information, contact Phoebe Stern.
