CMS Curriculum Mapping
To produce an overview of student learning experiences and showing a relationship between CMS standards and content/skills that are taught and assessed within the organizational framework of the school calendar.
♦ To provide a tool that analyzes how standards are implemented and assessed
♦ To provide information related to scope and sequence
♦ To reveal opportunities for integration of various contents and essential skills
♦ To produce a useable tool for teachers as they plan and develop lessons
Examples of CMS Curriculum Mapping Guidelines:
♦ Only one map is developed for each course.
♦ Review standards to determine which need to be identified in the essential skills section.
♦ Include research standards
♦ Record standards and benchmarks on the content map
♦ The map is written in a matter that is easily understood by any teacher new to CMS or colleague
that does not teach the particular content of that map.
