ClassroomCurriculum & Instruction

A properly designed school curriculum stands on the firm pillars of defined scope and concrete sequence. The statement of scope and sequence describes the content and skills that a student needs to master in progressive order by the end of the session. The way teachers create a scope and sequence depends upon what they anticipate from their students to acquire from the school curriculum. It is an arduous job that requires a lot of patience and in-depth knowledge of the subject, but it can be boiled down to three simple steps.

And we’re right on many levels. Things will be different, better, and more student-focused. However, each year, like a mother forgets the pain of childbirth, we, teachers and school staff, forget the physical and mental fatigue that inevitably comes with doing this job well. Alas, it is my suggestion that part of our strategic plan this year from school boards and superintendents to building administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals includes a preventative plan to ensure we care for ourselves, for one another, and strive to protect school staff’s mental health and prevent burnout.
