Overview of Curriculum Mapping
Curriculum Mapping Definition
Curriculum Mapping can be described as the relationship between two sides of a coin. The first side is the creation of a database (that can be searched and analyzed) which includes the essential elements of a curriculum map. The other side of the coin is the review process - examining, discussing and revising maps within and across disciplines and grade levels.

What are you using curriculum maps for? In this video Marie discusses 5 possible uses for mapping. Specifically we examine the alignment of maps internally, externally, matched to student needs, globally and vertically year-to-year. She also briefly touches on a few tools that support alignment: diamonds of alignment, color-coded and alpha-numeric systems, and year-long contexts.
