Foreword by Larry E. Frase
The classic book on curriculum alignmentupdated for the 21st century!
This seminal text on developing, aligning, and auditing curriculum has now been reissued to achieve even greater impact. Since the early 1990s, Deciding What to Teach and Test has been a key component in curriculum alignment and professional development programs across the country.
It is a powerful, up-to-date tool to help teachers become more involved in curriculum planning and practice. The Millennium Edition provides an updated perspective on improving student achievement with a new preface, foreword, and listing of recent research.
Betty Steffy and The Video Journal of Education have joined with Fenwick W. English and Corwin Press to offer this Millennium Edition, a video companion, and a new Facilitator s Guide. Further background and depth to English s work is available in Developing, Aligning, and Auditing Curriculum, presented by The Video Journal of Education. This videotape offers a powerful personal presentation by English as he illustrates how to maximize student achievement by aligning what is written, taught, and tested.
To complete this extraordinary program, Betty Steffy s Curriculum Alignment: A Facilitator s Guide to Deciding What to Teach and Test offers a bridge between these two works. In it, Steffy shows educators how to create learning and staff development activities that apply and extend the ideas presented in the best-selling book and videotape.
It s a valuable time-saving kit for the busy administratorand available in a variety of configurations to fit any program and budget.
