Mapping and Aligning the curriculum is an important process to ensure that students have  the opportunity to be introduced and  and frequently revisit standards. It is a process that can guarantee that standards articulate and grow upon each previous standard allowing teachers to see where their students have been and where they are going. It also allows educators to see both strengths and weaknesses in this progression. Best of all, an alignment with assessment can help teachers facilitate the idea that the final outcome matches and ensures that standards have been implemented in the classroom. When done across the district it allows for concepts and units to occur during similar time periods. This can help build the idea of collaborative efforts, crowd sourcing, and common assessments by teachers. For the student  it supports the idea that all students are  working with standards and that a move from one school or class to another provides a seamless transition. The videos below from the Teaching Channel provides a closer look at how several schools are making this happen. A visit to this specific area on the Teaching Channel Website provides further documentation and practice with the idea of curriculum alignment and mapping.
