We know that curriculum is the core of the classroom experience, but what makes a quality curriculum? How can educators be sure that what they teach is strongly aligned to the specific standards? What kinds of lessons, learning experiences, and assessments are most effective, and how should they be embedded within the curriculum? By examining the big picture, educators can determine the curriculum’s strengths and weaknesses. From there they can decide where to focus attention in the curriculum design or revision and where to supplement an adopted published curriculum. (Lalor, 2017) As we examine the big picture, there are layers of curriculum to consider: formal, operational, taught, assessed and learned. This workshop is designed to examine the many layers of high quality curriculum.


Workshop objectives:

  • Discuss the importance of curriculum accessibility and effectiveness.
  • Understand the many layers, their importance and how they interact for clear communication and effectiveness.
  • Examine the importance of quality professional development to address the rationale, development, and use of the curriculum.
  • Experience how student work is used to inform the curriculum, illustrate levels of performance, and determine student need.


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
