EDUC 245 - Designing Curriculum for Assessment and Differentiated Instruction


CR: 4
Prerequisite: EDUC 103. This course is designed to explore current research and best practices for curriculum design, lesson planning, differentiated instruction, and unit development. Expert teachers use assessment results to design high-quality, differentiated curriculum and instruction. This course defines principles and strategies of assessment and responsive teaching in order to effectively match curriculum and instruction with the ongoing needs of learners. Rubrics, quality indicators, and performance criteria will be used to assess the effects of teaching as well as learning. In accordance with a clinical lab component and the Virginia Standards of Learning, students will use backward design to develop a cohesive curriculum unit framework that aligns lesson objectives, standards, and assessments with differentiated activities and instructional resources to address individual student and class needs. A fee for a background check may be required for this course.
