Curriculum and Assessment

Working Together To Ensure All Students Learn and Feel a True Sense of Belonging.

Within this plan, Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union has developed a Curriculum Framework that is made up of 10 elements from Schooling by Design that will help all of our students achieve the Supervisory Union ENDs.  The revisions of our curricula are the focus of seven curriculum committees.  As we have learned from Robert Marzano's meta-analysis in What Works in Schools, the development of a guaranteed and viable curriculum is the number one factor at the school level for student success.  Please see our definition of a guaranteed and viable curriculum.  The ten components of supervisory union curriculum are:

  1. Statements of Mission, and Learning Principles
  2. K-12 Overarching Enduring Understandings and Essential Question
  3. Learning Progressions and Grade Level Benchmarks
  4. Cornerstone Assessments
  5. Common Rubrics
  6. Anchor Papers
  7. Enabling Strategies and Differentiation Instruction
  8. Diagnostic and Formative Assessments
  9. Troubleshooting
  10. Monitoring and Evaluation
