Curriculum mapping initiatives are started with the essential goal of improving student achievement, yet the mapping process can be challenging to navigate or lead. While the main work of curriculum mapping is conducted by classroom teachers, administrators must be actively involved, and they must also take into account the demands curriculum mapping places on teachers. This book provides administrators with the foundational understandings and specific guidance and strategies to effectively support a curriculum mapping initiative in their schools and districts. The authors discuss administrative leadership for curriculum mapping, including the roles and responsibilities of various administrative positions, such as the superintendent, headteacher, and curriculum director, and provide protocols and procedures for writing administrative maps. A Leader's Guide to Curriculum Mapping offers concrete information and suggestions for moving a curriculum mapping initiative forward in a positive manner and ultimately ensuring that curriculum mapping is not only sustained, but is embedded in the cultural consciousness and becomes the natural way of conducting professional curriculum work throughout a learning organization. The book: - Includes brief but necessary coverage of theory and foundational concept - Focuses on administrative leadership with curriculum design in mind and administrative support for systemic change - Provides administrators with guidance, protocols, and step-by-step directions for the stages of a curriculum mapping initiative - Offers practical applications, realistic expectations, and real-life examples - Addresses significant concerns such as time and resources necessary for sustainability.
