Model Curriculum Units as Key Resources for STEM Implementation

Room: Red Level, Suite 21

Districts across Massachusetts are revising and developing curriculum aligned to the 2011 Mathematics Curriculum Framework and will be doing so for upcoming revised science standards. Through the state’s Race to the Top grant over 60 districts have collaborated to develop Model Curriculum Units in core academic subject areas, including STEM. Participants in this session will receive an overview of the Model Curriculum project, the Understanding by Design process, key features of the units, and an in-depth look at sample math units. Participants may then use the units in classrooms, adapt them, or use them as a reference for local curriculum development work.
