Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment - Overview

Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (CI&A) covers a broad range of topics, however, the essence of CI&A answers these questions:

Curriculum: The content and contexts we teach our children in school.

Instruction: Teaching methods that promote the student as an active participant and that are aligned to student learning styles to promote mastery and achievement.

Assessment: Ongoing informal and formal methods to measure student learning which helps teachers plan and adapt instruction to meet individual student needs.

Acceleration:  Focused instruction on specific skills and content necessary to learn the grade level content at hand.

Enrichment:   Additional or different work that expands on the current curriculum.
