Curriculum Mapping: A Tool for Collaboration & Continuity Webinar

May 09, 2018 - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Through curriculum mapping, teachers and administrators can document and share with each other the what's and how's of delivering curricula for different subjects, grade levels and classrooms, including teachers' reflections on the activities, assessments, and resources they used to support instruction. The resulting database provides a wealth of information for enhancing the learning and teaching environment. The mapping process facilitates greater collaboration among teachers and highlights opportunities for interdisciplinary instruction. Join Jamie Cloud from the Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education as we take a deeper dive into the Curriculum Mapping action in the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program and explore various approaches/tools for mapping. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
