Curriculum





Criteria

Web-based lesson plans and curriculum modules must be easily navigable for the intended audience, have a clean design that enhances, but does not detract from the content, be free of grammatical or other mechanical errors, include a teacheręs guide, and use the uniqueness of the Web to enhance teaching.

Web-based lessons must include:

  • At least one activity in which students are actively engaged in problem-solving or interacting with others;
  • At least one technology-based, though not necessarily Web-based, activity (one activity may encompass both characteristics);
  • Criteria for assessment of student work; and
  • Links to additional resources to either supplement the lesson plan or provide for further student inquiry on-line.

Curriculum modules must:

  • Include activities that encourage independent student inquiry, either individually or in a group;
  • Include activities that successfully use the Web as a resource;
  • Address Chicago Public Schools Academic Standards;
  • Provide guidelines for student reflection and assessment of own work and the work of others; and
  • Provide a means for evaluation of curriculum by other teachers.

Standards-based education is "a way to focus instruction on an accepted set of ideas about what students should know and be able to do at each grade level." The Standards-based Curriculum Initiative and the Illinois Learning Goals aim to provide a framework for student learning.
