This sunflower curriculum alignment map is a process for collecting and recording curriculum-related data for each subject area and grade level that identifies core skills and content taught, methods used, and assessments used. The completed curriculum map then serves as a tool for teachers to keep track of what has been prepared and plan what will be taught in the future. A curriculum map's purpose is to document the relationship between each curriculum component. Remember that curriculum maps are records of implemented instruction – what was taught during the current school year. Projection maps, also known as pacing guides, project what will be covered in the future. Go ahead and start using EdrawMax to create learning course diagrams for your school.
