May 2014 Institute

Curriculum Mapping Implementation and Improvement Strategies Institute

Building on last summer’s curriculum mapping institutes, the Department and the regional
Readiness Centers are offering a one-day institute for district curriculum teams on specific
strategies for implementing and improving curriculum maps. The session will be led by
Cambridge Education staff who have helped numerous Massachusetts district teams with their
curriculum mapping implementation efforts. Participating district teams will gain both practical
strategies and facilitated team planning time, in areas including: action planning, improving map
quality, linking mapping and professional learning communities, and progress monitoring.

Seeking Curriculum Map Examples

The Curriculum Alignment and Mapping Project (a RTTT-funded partnership with the regional
Readiness Centers) is creating a library of curriculum map examples from Massachusetts
districts. If your district has curriculum map examples that you would be willing to share with
other districts, please encourage your curriculum leadership to send them to Zach Smith at
