Abstract:

This curriculum framework is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide for redesigning curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development around the new Colorado state model of content standards for k-12 geography education. The framework enumerates strategies and ideas for implementing the new standards at the district, school, and classroom level. Part 1 of the framework, "Exploring Standards," provides an introduction to the new geography standards, and traces their evolution at the national and state level over the past several years. A set of model benchmarks offers examples of how each of the six standards can be woven into the curriculum at various grade levels. Part 2, "Charting a New Course," explores the "nuts and bolts" of redesigning curriculum, instruction, and assessment around the new standards. This includes: (1) developing a standards-based unit of instruction; (2) incorporating the standards into existing curriculum; (3) developing new ways of assessing students' learning progress; (4) using technology more effectively; (5) using the local community for field studies and other hands-on learning experiences; and (6) accommodating the special needs of gifted students, students with learning disabilities, and students with limited proficiency in English. Part 3, "Training the Expeditionary Team," offers guidelines for developing school- and district-based professional development programs, and part 4, "Developing and Sharing New Resources," contains additional materials.
