SE 220 Curriculum Development for Middle and Secondary Education

Curriculum development challenges teachers to synthesize standards, assessments, resources, student learning needs and more to craft units and lessons that help students to generate meaningful understands.  Like an architect (whose designs are influenced by their customer, the materials on hand, the work site, and their own experience and aesthetics), teachers are influenced by state and national standards, their student’s needs , the resources on hand, and their own expertise when designing their curriculum.  Teachers’ curriculum writing abilities can be improved upon by adopting effective techniques, practicing frequently, collaborating with other professionals, and working to improve their craft throughout their career.  This course will help students learn to create exceptional unit and lesson plans.  In addition, students will grapple with the core issues facing writers of curriculum at the dawn of the 21st century.
