NTSD is in the process of writing Know, Understand, and Do (KUD) Organizers and Student Learning Maps (SLM). We are referring to these as our Power Curriculum. On Oct. 19-20, 2010 the math representatives K-12 gathered in the board room to write NTSD Power Curriculum. The process follows the following steps:
Prioritize the standards as essential, important, or compact for the grade level or course
Write KUD’s based on this. It is also helpful to think of topics or units that course can be broken into.
Write SLM’s from the KUD’s
Review the KUD’s and SLM’s making editions and revisions
Actualize the curriculum and “publish” it via the Toolbox for everyone to use.
Once complete KUD’s and SLM’s are completed for the year and we will revise them in curriculum revision meetings.
