Research “A common instructional framework that guides curriculum, teaching,

assessment, and learning climate, combining specific expectations for student learning with specific strategies and materials to guide teaching assessment (pg. 3).”

From “Ensuring What is Tested is Taught” “Based on your analysis of such research and your analysis of your

own and your colleagues’ knowledge of students and the community,

you will eventually select a model to use. Become fully informed about it through reading, visitations, and discussions and seek out any staff development you might need (pg. 108).”

From “Developing a Quality Curriculum” chapter by Allan Glatthorn
