Curriculum Mapping: Definition, Purpose,
Education World ®
How I got started writing curriculum
Early in my teaching career I had to teach a ninth grade class world
history. I quickly realized that they had little
knowledge of geography. I wrote a study of their community and
used that as a microcosm to explore the rest of the world. When I
was excessed to another school, they would not let me use the
curriculum. A couple of years later it was adapted on a
district level & was used in 35 schools.
I included a comparison of jobs 100 years & today. This
helped me get a job writing career education curriculum.

Curriculum should be an ongoing piece of work. Teachers should
be encouraged to add, eliminate, or modify as they see fit.
Working with others and brainstorming will produce great work.
Definitely try it out with students and get their input before you
I wrote curriculum for my school district, the New York City School
System and for Open Doors a School-Business Partnership in New York
