In my district, curriculum mapping is simply an overview of the year's
curriculum plans. I do mine on a montly basis, e.g., Printmaking as the
main title, then under that put vocabulary, history, techniques,
projects kids will do, goals, etc. Some teachers get more specific by
saying they'll spend 3 days on this, 5 on that, etc. The primary
purposes of them are for long-range planning and to help teachers know
what everyone is doing so we can plan integrated lessons. In the case of
departments in which several teachers teach the same thing, math, for
example, it helps each member to stay on track, particularly when they
have end of couse tests. We've done it here for about 5 years. Seems
like a pain at first, but I have gone back to them periodically. It
especially helps me to develop scope and sequence for each of my levels.
