From the Experts
Curriculum is the starting point. “When we postpone the implementation of
curriculum, we forfeit the benefits of the most powerful lever for
improvement. And we make the work of team-based professional learning
communities impossible.”
- Mike Schmoker, “Refocus Professional Development”
“The number one factor affecting student achievement is a
guaranteed and viable curriculum.”
– Robert Marzano, “What Works In Schools”
"If there are gaps among teachers within buildings, there are virtual
Grand Canyons among buildings in a district.”
- Heidi Hayes Jacobs, “Mapping the Big Picture”

“One of the tasks of curriculum
leadership is to use the right
methods to bring the written, the
taught, the supported, and the
tested curriculums into closer
alignment, so that the learned
curriculum is maximized.”
