Reflection: Week 1 of Curriculum Management

Posted by Hope Scott on Monday, January 24, 2011 Under: curriculum management
What is curriculum management?  According to Dr. Elvis H. Arterbury,  Professor, Department of Educational Administration of Lamar University, "It is the process of providing leadership on the development, implementation, and evaluation of curriculum and assessments that focus on academic success for all students. (2011)"

This week I looked at the six components of the Texas Education Agency Learning System including the minimum state provisions, desirable local provisions for each of the six components, and preliminary suggestions for improvement. The Texas roadmap to student achievement includes the following components (Arterbury, 2011): 
  • learning goal - What do we want students to know and do?  
    • Learning goals for Texas students are the TEKS.  They comprise the state-mandated curriculum guide that establishes what Texas students must know and be able to do.  
  • curriculum documents - What resources will we use to meet our goals for students?  
    • This has three parts, namely, written curriculum or the guide for instruction, the taught curriculum, and the tested curriculum.  The state of Texas' curriculum requirements include foundation curriculum (consisting of English language arts, math, science, and social studies) and enrichment curriculum (consisting of languages other than English, pe, fine arts, career and technology). The state of Texas also provides teacher editions for all adopted textbooks.  
  • instructional program - What strategies will we use to teach students what we want them to know and do?
  • staff development progrm - How can we acquire and improve the skills we need to teach all learners?
    • includes PDAS with its focus on learner-centered instruction.  
  • measurement system - How will we evaluate what we do?
    • AEIS report which shows performance indicators are disaggregated by ethnicity, gender, special education, low-income status, limited English proficient status, and at-risk status. PEIMS data is used to collect this information.  
  • administrative procedures - What policies support or hinder the goals we are trying to help our students attain?
    • The Campus Improvement Plan is a key component.
