Hi. Curriculum mapping seems to be the "latest thing" in certain systems. It
is a process that generates the 'big picture" of what children are learning
at all levels at all times. It allows educators to see if there are any gaps
in a child's education. It is a long process of cooperation though for the
people putting it together. Every educator in the school writes out what is
happening in their own rooms...then it is put together by subject to see
when and if children are learning the same things...then they map that out
with changes...then they move on to other grades etc, see
what's going on there...and lastly they focus on the interdisciplinary
connections.....that is, if they are an "aware of the power of the ARTS"
school system. That's my take on it from watching WAY too many videos in
grad school.

By the way Jerry I thank you for the papier mache ideas...I am starting a
project with my 5th graders and you gave me a few ideas! Thanks.

AND everyone I thank you for your ideas about sending work home....I am
still a little foggy about what to do...but I now have some great thoughts
from which to work from!
