MAPPING THE RIGHT COURSE: SGCS making plans

April 13, 2012


Smith-Green Community School Corporation is taking steps to map the right courses for its students.

During Monday night’s board meeting, Shellie Miller, the Churubusco Elementary School principal, and Austin Couch, the Churubusco Junior Senior High School principal, explained the mapping process for each grade level and course in the “technical areas” of arts, agriculture, family and consumer science, business-technology and information technology, Project Lead the Way/engineering and technology education.

“Curriculum maps are especially useful for new teachers as a guideline of when to teach specific curriculum and from where to access information,” said Miller.

SGCS Superintendent Steve Darnell explained, “The final outcome is a curriculum map that reflects instructional outcomes for each grade level or course, vocabulary and definitions that unite students for meaningful understanding of the standard selection of materials such as textbook, digital curriculum and other materials that support learning.”
