Written Curriculum Includes curriculum guides, lesson plans and grade records. Some of the written curriculum guides are available online. Also, teachers have access to hard copies of course/grade level objectives and other curriculum resource materials. Taught Curriculum Teachers follow the courses of study and instructional materials provided by the District, the essential knowledge and skills for each subject mandated by the state, and the scope and sequence developed by curriculum writers and reviewed by other teachers. Tested Curriculum Teacher-made tests, district-wide assessments and state assessments are aligned with what is written and taught. Teachers and administrators use test results to assess the status of individual student achievement, to identify general achievement trends of various groups of students, and to modify curriculum and/or instruction as warranted by assessment results.
