Curriculum and Instruction

What is Curriculum?

A curriculum is what provides teachers, students, administrators and community stakeholders with a plan for delivering quality instruction. It acts as a road map for teachers and students to follow on the path to academic success. The curriculum spells out the learning outcomes, knowledge, and skills students must demonstrate and is created based on the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS), which were developed for every grade span to provide a blueprint as to how students should progress as they move toward graduation.  A school's curriculum outlines the pacing for units, addresses learning standards, includes ways to differentiate the core content for individual learners, incorporates technology, and includes different types of assessments to monitor student progress towards mastery. Teachers and students play key roles in how curriculum is addressed in each classroom.
