How effective curriculum mapping can benefit your school

The success of any organization depends on at least two things - people and planning. In schools, great people and great plans are essential to providing the best learning experiences for students! Clear articulation of a student's learning journey from the earliest to the final grades speaks volumes about the care and intentionality the school brings to the life of each student. Curriculum mapping provides both an easily understood educational plan and the tools necessary for analysis of knowledge repetition and gaps.

Curriculum mapping values the contributions of each educator who shared the responsibility for the learning journey of the school's students. Curriculum mapping enables educators to understand and value each other's work, and open avenues for further collaboration to build coherent learning experiences for students.
