Curriculum coordination must be about focusing priorities and connecting them to content and practice. Curriculum audits offer school administrators and teachers a lens to identify “big picture” needs in curriculum, teaching and learning.
CASDA’s experienced faculty will meet with school personnel to determine curricular needs and develop an audit plan. The audit is done in three phases:
Planning phase in which meetings are held and priorities determined.
Data collection phase – document review, interviews and classroom observations.
Final Report phase. Data and feedback are analyzed and recommendations to improve curricular practice are presented to the school.
The curriculum audit document should serve as a reference in a cycle of needs assessment, professional development, implementation, observation, follow up evaluation and revision.
CASDA’s curriculum audits are grounded in a robust foundation of research; including the work of Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Fenwick English and Larry Ainsworth.
Audits led by CASDA’s expert faculty provide teachers and administrators with a framework to evaluate their current curricular practices and the necessary insight to make improvements leading to greater student achievement.
