Curriculum Mapping for Elementary Teachers is for new teachers feeling overwhelmed who need help planning their curriculum and veteran teachers who want to streamline their planning process and save time. The number one request from teachers is for more time in their school day. Planning lessons is necessary for a thriving learning environment, yet teachers struggle to complete it during school hours. By creating a yearly scope and sequence, teachers will spend less time planning and more time creating engaging lessons for their students.
Elementary teachers will complete a curriculum map as they learn how to integrate and align teaching units.
