Curriculum can be a confusing concept. Varied definitions and descriptions may create challenges for practitioners as they strive to implement good programming for children and families and to make prudent decisions about the use of standards, teaching practices, and assessments for their classrooms. The purpose of the following document is to provide guidance for practitioners who are:
- Learning to define curriculum and its importance for high quality early learning and school-age programs.
- Reviewing their current curriculum and assessment materials or considering the purchase of new materials.
- Seeking a set of resources for further reading and/or reference to improve curriculum implementation.
