Rigorous Curriculum Design Process
PPS teachers, instructional specialists, school building leaders, and district staff will be formed into Scope & Sequence Work Teams for each of our core content areas. Using the Rigorous Curriculum Design process (L. Ainsworth, 2010), District TOSAs will lead work teams in the development of a scope and sequence for their respective content area. Each scope and sequence will be developed in conjunction with curriculum maps that will serve as the foundation of our GVC. The Office of Teaching and Learning will support teachers and building administrators in the development of lesson plans by providing professional development on lesson planning and components of the curriculum maps, optional lesson planning templates, and curating exemplary lesson plans from PPS professional educators.
