Curriculum Planning and Implementation

Student Achievement Begins with a Plan for Success

Benefits of Custom Curriculum Planning

Every school community is unique. Teachers have a range of strengths, and students have diverse needs. But many schools still rely on curriculum plans that come out of a box.

Effective curriculum planning ensures that your school is teaching students, not just standards. Customized yearly plans save time when planning daily lessons. They also ensure that instruction is consistent within, and across grade levels.

What Educators Are Saying

The program provided a springboard for our district to discuss common goals and what we want the outcomes of each grade to be.

They have a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips and provided us with strategies for every subject. When we didn’t have a resource we needed, they helped us make our own.

A Curriculum Planning Success Story

Jackie

Middle School Principal

Brooklyn, NY

My staff and I had the opportunity to work with Room to Discover to support conceptual learning, hands-on instruction, and differentiation in our math classes.

We adopted Room to Discover’s 3-Bridges Design for Learning in all of our middle school math classes. I found our consultant to be supportive, hard-working, and innovative. Throughout the engagement, he helped teachers identify areas for growth and adapted his support to meet the needs of our school and individual teachers.

This system allowed us to tailor instruction to individual student needs, while targeting grade level standards. Room to Discover’s expertise in classroom practice, technology integration, and curriculum planning contributed to the overwhelming success of our initiative.

Our curriculum planning initiative contributed to significant growth in student achievement this past school year. Our rising 7th grade class doubled its proficiency on state tests, while the number of students severely below grade level dropped 10%.
These gains were achieved through the hard work of our students, faculty, and leadership team. Room to Discover aligned their support with our ongoing initiatives, creating a collaborative atmosphere for professional learning. I would recommend them and the 3-Bridges Design for Learning to any school looking to increase student engagement and achievement.
